Kirsty Wiseman is a well known UK scrapper, freelance paper and digi designer, and a serious photographer. Seriously! She is also one half of the photo-challenge blog: Her Space-My Space. Her 12 year old daughter, Ellie, has had serious medical issues (still undiagnosed!) since the age of 3 months.
After exhausting all the options in the UK over the past decade and more, Ellie and her parents have been invited to see doctors in the US. People around the world are pitching in to help raise £5,000 (a bit over $10,000 US) for investigation and subsequent treatment by some generous doctors in Nevada this coming Spring. See this touching video featuring sweet Belle, herself.
Ruth Denton and her husband, Dr. Scott Denton, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, have arranged visits with various physicians and clinics in the Las Vegas area to try and identify Ellie’s ailment(s) and treat them effectively.
Ellie’s story has also hit the news bigtime with a feature in the Daily Mail and onFox News. Read more about Ellie and her family on Kirsty’s blog and on the Ellie’s Trust web site.
Doing my part…
All the proceeds from the sale of my new kit, Red, Red Rose, during both February and March will be donated to Ellie’s Trust fund. The kit is almost done so watch for it soon. I’m just finishing up the packaging and previews now – almost as time consuming as creating the whole kit!
Doing your part…
Please visit Ellie’s site and donate to this worthy cause. Then, come back here in a few days when my new kit will be available to purchase. Every penny helps and Kirsty pledges that any extra will be donated to approriate causes and/or charities.
