Fighting for Fiona

One of my favorite parts of being a teacher  is the opportunity to give back to others, especially sweet kiddos in need! While I do not have any babies of my own yet (other than my daily 20), I can not imagine the struggles some families have to go through fighting for their child's health. This month I am fortunate enough to be a part of a great K-1 fundraiser for a sweet baby girl. The Who's Who authors are holding this fundraiser for a little girl named Fiona from Indiana.

Three year old Fiona Waller’s only cure is a bone marrow transplant...her medical bills are overwhelming as well. 

Fiona was born with a rare, life threatening immune deficiency which requires her to undergo painful weekly infusions. A bone marrow transplant would replace her defective B-Cells and T-Cells. Karen Waller, Fiona's mom worries that, "the only other option is to continue treatments and wait until she gets sick."
  • The family’s medical insurance requires an $8,000 out of pocket deductible each           January.
  • Fi’s medical bills totaled over $80,000 in the first 6 months.
To help this wonderful family with expenses for this beautiful baby girl, Who's Who is holding a fundraiser to help pay for her medical bills. Our initial goal is to raise enough to pay for the family’s 2016 deductible. Maybe we can even raise enough to pay for the actual bone marrow transplant!

All proceeds from the sale of these educational resource bundles, will go to Fiona and her family. Please check out some of these resources from the links below. You will get some AMAZING resources AND you will be helping out a family in need. Resources are divided into grade level bundles and I am so thankful to contribute to the K-1 fundraiser (the others look wonderful too!)
