What an amazing year it has been! We never could have imagined we would have been able to accomplish all that we did in one year's time. The last few months were particularly busy and seemed to go by in a flash. Livy's Hope has made such a difference in our lives and we hope in the lives of others as well. I have a feeling this is only the beginning of something bigger and more inspirational.
We are excited to share with you that our video "I Am Hope" for the Livy's Hope For A Cure campaign has been chosen as a finalist for the WEDU Be More Awards! The ceremony will be held on February 20th in Tampa. This is a wonderful honor and we are so proud to be among the finalists.
As we come to the end of our campaign, we are proud to say that we gave it our all. Thanks to our family, friends and supporters that stood by us and helped us to make a great impact. Hailey's goal was to raise $1 million dollars by year's end. In the eyes of a child, what seems impossible is very possible. Although we have not reached that incredible amount, we have come very close to raising $15,000. Never in our lives have we raised that much money for anything. We truly hope and pray that this donation to the Epilepsy Foundation will bring them that much closer to finding a cure.
We have dreamed for so long for an answer for Livy. She has endured two very difficult brain surgeries. Our wish is that other parents will not have to stand by and watch their child go through the same thing. Livy's brain has been severed but her strength and hope will forever be intact.
Would you please consider making a year end tax deductible donation in honor of our campaign? Words would not be able to express our gratitude. We will continue to seek, educate and hope.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
Allison, Jon, Hailey & Livy
