For a while now I've been reading Mieke's blog. I started reading it because Mieke was a visitor to Dakota's blog and, at the time, was looking at going to law school. Dakota would tell me about the conversations the two were having about the hardships of being a parent while pursuing a law degree. Since I am always trying to understand the "I'm a full-time working mom who is planning to add law school to my crazy life with small kids" mind, I started reading her blog. Fast forward a year and I'm still reading. Anyway....Mieke has a close friend who had a baby a year ago. Shortly after Adelaide was born, she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.
As you know, this is a devastating disease. And, at this point, there is no cure. Last year, Mieke helped raise $18,000 for the CF Foundation. This year she is hoping to reach $25,000. Here is where you can help Adelaide and others like her. If you have clicked on the links in this posting then you have seen her face - she is just a baby with her whole life before her. You can help by donating whatever you can to the Great Strides donation site for the CF Foundation. Mieke has an account set up and it's super easy to process a donation. Every single dollar helps. Every single one.
So seriously, if you can spare a few dollars please do. I did. I would love to see Mieke reach her donation goal. (And yes, your donation is tax deductible.) So what do you say? Will you join me?
