Members, Vendors, Sponsors -- PLEASE HELP Lila (3 years old)

All,

This is out of character for me, but I'm asking for help supporting a fundraiser to benefit my friend's three year old daughter, Lila.

From her family:

We didn’t know at the joyous time of her birth, but our little girl, (now 3-years-old!) has an extremely rare genetic condition: Megacystis-Microcolon-Intestinal Hypoperistalsis Syndrome (MMIHS). It’s estimated that only 15-25 people with MMIHS in the U.S. are alive today.

Lila has been in and out of hospitals in multiple states since she was 10 months old, but amazingly, it hasn’t dampened our beautiful little girl’s spirit or lessened her enthusiastic love of life.

Most children with MMIHS die at birth or before they’re 1. We feel so lucky that Lila has a relatively mild case of MMIHS, but she still has a life-threatening, life-long, hidden disability. She’ll suffer from bladder and bowel issues and will need medical care for the rest of her life



As you can imagine, the family's medical bills are out of control and friends have organized a fundraiser on April 28th. There will be raffle giveaways, a silent auction, and a truck show where voting will be in the form of cash donations (the truck that receives the most money will win first place, etc). All proceeds will go to Lila's medical care.


However, we are in need of raffle prizes and auction items. This is where we can use some assistance from the members, vendors, and sponsors of this site. We're seeking anything and everything that can bring in some additional money. Although there will be a lot of truck enthusiasts in attendance, there will also be friends and families with other interests. So if you own a business or company that isn't diesel truck related, please don't feel like you can't help.

Please PM me if you're willing and able to help, and I thank you in advance for your generosity.

Mike

Or if you don't have merchandise and would like to donate, I failed to mention the family did set up a paypal account for this cause.
