I was devastated when I found out a fellow Rhody Blogger's 2 1/2 year old daughter, Belle, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). You can read Melissa's heartbreaking story about learning of her daughter's diagnosis here: http://kent.macaronikid.com/article/422008/belles-story
Rhody Bloggers immediately came together to find a way to help Belle and her family. A group of us have teamed up with La-Z-Boy in Warwick, RI to host a 48-hour Sit-A-Thon to raise money to help cover Belle's increasing medical costs.
If you are local, please consider stopping by La-Z-Boy and participating in some family-friendly activities to support sweet Belle (more information and a full schedule of events can be found here). You may even be lucky enough to see her!
If you aren't local, you can still help! A YouCaring page has been set up in honor of Belle. 100% of donations received will go towards covering Belle's medical expenses.
A special shout-out and thank you to Jen, Melissa and La-Z-Boy for all of their hard work organizing this event!
