Tomorrow is Wear Pink for #Cora day! This month I actually got off my rear and figured out my good deed. I didn’t get as much accomplished as I had planned, but in the end, every little bit counts!
This month my good deed involves Doing Good in Her Name. Kristin’s blog touched my heart when I first started following it. I’m not sure how I even stumbled upon it in the first place. Kristin and Andrew Binder had a perfectly normal pregnancy, labor, and delivery. When their beautiful daughter Peyton Elizabeth was born, they found out she had leukemia. I didn’t know that babies could be born with leukemia. But she was a fighter! Did you know they can give babies that small chemotherapy? I didn’t.Her fight was valiant, but the battle was too great. Only a small percentage of children born with ALL live to see their third birthday. Sadly, on October 2, 2008, at just 28 days old, Infant Leukemia made Peyton an angel.
During Peyton’s life, we were the recipients of many acts of kindness. Wanting to pay that kindness forward, we started Doing Good In Her Name In November of 2010, an initiative focused on honoring the memory of our little warrior, Peyton Elizabeth, by assisting other critically ill infants and their families.
Here they are all packaged up (each one was washed and sealed in a ziploc baggy to stay clean):
And here they are in the box. I threw in some Zanybandz for the older kids:
