I want to talk Fish.
Not Fish as in the fish in the sea. But the Fish Family.
Grab a tissue, and watch this video. Then we will finish talking.
Now go hug your kids.
Natalie and Alice Fish are 2 beautiful little girls who have been diagnosed with SCID ( Severe Combined Immunodeficiency). OR the "Bubble Boy Disease"
Because I am not health expert nor an expert on SCID and at the risk of explaining it wrong, I recommend you read more about it here.
A few months ago I had never heard of the Natalie and Alice Fish let alone SCID. Now every time I see this video or read updates on their hospital stay and recovery on the Fish Family Blog I cry for them.
If only I could hug those girls and help their parents a bit more. There isn't a moment that goes by that I don't thank god for my children's health. In a million years I do not think I could even imagine the pain and stress their little bodies are under let alone the pain and stress their parents live with every day just watching as their beautiful babies suffer.
When I was contacted by Ali the creator of the blog Lemon Poppy Inc. to contribute a recipe and photo to a cookbook that when completed would be sold with the proceeds being donated to the Fish Family, I jumped at the chance. It's not allot but it's something I could do to help these girls and their family. I was just one of many bloggers who did the same.
|That is my Maple Brown Sugar Cream Pie... one of many mouth watering recipes!|
Ali put so much work into creating this book and setting up this fundraiser to help the Fishes. I want to thank her so much for everything, as well as including me in on this opportunity to help out.
If you would like to purchase the Blogging for Fishes ebook or recipe book click here for more info on Ali's blog Lemon Poppy Inc. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help the Fish family.
I have not one but TWO copies I will be giving away.
