UPDATE II 8:16AM Central Sunday: I see we’ve raised $50 so far for Ethan.Â He only needs $125 more for his loan to be fulfilled.Â Please consider hopping over to Lend4Health and loaning $5, $10, or even $100!Â Imagine how good you’ll feel when Ethan is able to get the testing he so desperately needs.Â It is the season of giving…
UPDATE 8:20PM Central Friday: I’ve decided to make this Cinco De Linco a weekend bender.Â I see we’ve only raised $40… I think we can do much better than that!!Â Right!?!Â Come on… if you guys can just lend $5 … it WILL help Ethan, I promise!Â $40 down, $135 to go!!Â Let’s do this thing!
Okay, I admit it, I missed my Cinco De Linco fundraiser last month.Â My excuse will not be acceptable to some of you, and for that I am sorry; but, here it is… I, Jeanne, the biggest arachnophobe in the history of arachnophobia, was bitten by a Black Widow spider on my wrist while rummaging around in our garage prepping for a garage sale.Â If you’ve ever read THIS, you’ll understand when I say I went into shutdown mode.Â A spider bite?Â Me?Â FYI: Red wine is a great way to self-medicate your psychosis away… well, it was for me.Â Once I realized what was happening to my arm, I started seeing deadly spiders everywhere… of course no one else saw them… just me. I guess it’s kind of like when someone starts talking about bugs and some people start getting the itchy-scratchies.
Okay, no more dwelling in my poisonous spider hell, I’m here to raise some money for Lend4Health.Â More specifically, I’m here to raise some money for little Ethan.Â His mom has this message for us all:
Ethan is the oldest of three children, and he is a fabulous big brother. He received his official diagnosis of PDD-NOS from a psychologist on October 29, 2008, and saw his DAN! doctor for the first time the following day! She is wonderful, but we were all pretty overwhelmed with the amount of testing and the costs involved, but we will do whatever we can!!! The hardest thing is thinking that we will have to forgo treatments that could really help him because we don’t have the means financially. Please support our family in this process and we promise NEVER to give up on Ethan – how could we?!?!
Ethan’s loan request is for $605.Â So far Lend4Health, through some very generous lenders, has raised $430!!Â That means we only have to raise $175 to fulfill the loan!!Â We can do that… right?!?!
So come on everyone, let’s all pull together in Cinco De Linco fashion (we raised $700 last time around) and get this boy’s loan funded!
