Someone needs our help!

I was just informed of some news that is not easy for me to take.....My dear friend in Tennessee...her daughter woke up one morning blind in both eyes....they rushed her to the hospital for testing.....This lovely little girl of 6 yrs old was diagnosed with the early stages of MS.
They are running more tests and will know more on the 18th of she may possibly also have Blood of a few days ago her left eye has cleared up and doctors have told her that her eyes should clear up in 6 to 8 months...God willing....Her daughters name is Ariel Boswell....her mother is finding me a photo of her to post....What I want to do is gather a community of artists to pull together and create art to sell to help fund the hospital bills for little Ariel....Her mother has stated that the insurance they have will not cover everything. If any of you could help with this...please say so! I hate it when children get sick...I would gladly take their place if God would allow.

I know I have had my trials this year but nothing in comparison to what this little girl is going through. So, please if you are able to help in any way please contact me here or you may email me at

Thank You!

Hi Nance, just wondering how you would handle the sale of these art items. Do we mail our items to you and you sell them? Terri

Whatever I can do, Nance...just shout! I haven't sold any of the ACEOs I listed on Etsy, so you are welcome to try....anything I can do, please just get in touch.

My Love & prayers for little Ariel & her family, and you.

Much Love, Q xXx

Perhaps, someone in this child's community is putting together a benefit of some sort. We could send our art there and they could hold a silent auction. Terri

Thank you Suzie! You can choose whatever you want for this little girl...I think Terri has a grand idea is to send my friend our art and let her family do a silent auction for her daughter...I am hoping to get more people...I will continue to search for more to help! Thank you Suzie and Terri...this really means alot! I will run this auction by my friend..I am sure she will love the idea!
Hugs and love to you both!

This is so sad. Ariel is very young to have to face such trials. My prayers will be with her and her family. What is Ariel's mother's name?
