Cyber Monday 2014


Happy Cyber Monday! Hailey has a special message for you. She's designed a new collection of bracelets for the holidays.

Please visit our shop at http://shop.livyshope.com/ and take a look. All of the "Giving Back" projects at Livy's Hope including the Livy's Hope Kids Crew, Livy's Hope For A Cure/Lemonade for Livy, Jewels of Hope and our Care Notebooks are funded by the profits from sales in our store. We are not a non profit so we rely heavily on merchandise sales to continue initiatives which impact many people in the community. Giving to others is what we do at Livy's Hope and with your help, we will continue to improve the lives of children with medical needs and their families.

Care Notebooks - Gifts to Parents

Care Notebooks - Gifts to Parents

 

As parents of a special needs child, we know firsthand the importance of staying organized and being able to easily locate Livy's history and present day needs. Therefore, Livy’s Hope has created notebooks to help parents and caregivers keep the necessary pieces of their child’s life at their fingertips. These Care Notebooks are a tool to help parents organize important information regarding their child. They can bring this notebook with them to appointments to help share information with their child's doctors, therapists and school.

Because of You

Because of You

We do what we do because of you. We continue to keep going because you told us we can. We get through and find peace in another day because you stand by us. We are who we are because you encourage us.

We knew we couldn't do this alone so we asked others to help, and they have.

Happy December!

Happy December!

Today is such a happy day at our house. It is the first day of December and Hailey has been eagerly awaiting to put up the Christmas tree. We have dug all the bins out of the garage and the holiday season has begun! I remember as a little girl how much I anticipated the holiday decorating. I couldn't wait for my dad to drag the boxes out of the attic and start stringing cranberries and popcorn for garland. The music was up loud and my spirits were high. Such amazing memories.

I am so happy to say that the spirit is alive in our house and we have so much to be thankful for. Livy has turned a corner and is doing great. The cast came off this past Thursday and she is healing well. Her hormone re-implant surgery went without a hitch on Tuesday too! We were in and out in no time at all. On the way out of the surgery center we met a wonderful family from Crystal River that recognized Livy from the newspaper article. It is always so funny to hear "Is this the Livy from the paper?". Our little super star. The family was originally from Clearwater and their daughter has a lot of similarities to Livy. I am looking forward to getting to know them, they seem like a very cool family.

Livy's Hope: A New Direction (Revised)

Our apologies if some of you received two emails. We were having some technical issues which stopped some notifications from being sent. We also revised part of this post to more adequately convey our message.

Over the last year-and-a-half, we have been blessed by all of you, our amazing supporters. You have been generous with your financial contributions to help with Livy’s therapies through donations and purchases of Hailey’s jewelry. Livy would not be where she is today without our whole team of followers. You have also given us emotional support through your kind words and heart-felt comments. You have proven to us that providing inspiration and hope can go a long way in helping someone get through a difficult time.

Good Sisters Article

The article about Hailey and Livy has been posted on the Tampa Bay Times website. There are also videos and slideshows on the page as well. We are so impressed with the wonderful job Rebecca Catalanello and Melissa Lyttle have done with the story of our girls. It is remarkable how much detail they captured and how well they got to know our family.

We are so excited to see it in print tomorrow! Please click the link below to read:

Tampa Bay Times Feature Article

Tampa Bay Times Feature Article

The Tampa Bay Times is going to be featuring a story about Livy and Hailey in this Sunday's paper (July 15). Our family has been followed by one of their reporters and photographers for the past five months. They became interested in the story of our girls when they heard about Hailey's Young Hero award.

For our local friends and supporters, check out this coming Sunday's Floridian section of the paper. We will be sharing a link on this blog to the story for our "out-of-town" friends and supporters as soon as we have it.

Welcome Blog

Welcome to the new and improved Livy’s Hope blog. A big welcome to all of you who were following Livy’s progress through the CarePages website. We hope that you will continue to follow Livy’s progress and all that we do to support her. In order to make our blogs easier to maintain, we have decided to combine the Livy’s Updates, Inspire Me! and Art By Hailey blogs into one overall Livy’s Hope blog. We intend on creating more entertaining videos, detailing inspiring stories and keeping you better up to date on Livy’s progress.

Many of you have told us “I don’t know how you do it.” The truth is, we could not do it without the love and support of so many. The encouragement and caring from all of you inspire us to stay positive and to keep us moving forward. We hope you will continue to visit us at Livy’s Hope and share our story with others. We are only just beginning in our quest to educate, advocate and inspire!
