Layla Grace Fundraiser.......

As many of you know, I have been a prayer warrior for a sweet little 2 year old named Layla.
She has been on my mind and my heart heavily for the past months.

I am holding a fundraiser to help with Layla's medical bills. 50% of ALL purchases made at Bella's Bowtique March 1st - March 5th, will be donated to Layla's family!

If you follow my blog, twitter, facebook, or on the Gymboree board you KNOW she is the only thing I can talk about daily!

I first found out about little Layla way back when I frequented a website called "Baby Wears Prada". Layla's mom was the owner of the website and had announced that her little baby was diagnosed with cancer!

Layla was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma at only 18 months old.

Unfortunately, this cancer has taken it's toll on sweet Layla, and she has merely a few number of days left on earth. We are all now praying for a miracle! We are asking that God perform a miracle on this child. We are also praying for Layla's comfort -as she is in a great deal of pain! She is being taken care of by Hospice - and has a morphine pump to control pain.

There have been many nights where I just lay in bed and cry over this sweet child. I grab my little 2 year old, and hold her, kiss her, and cry. This is how much Layla has effected my life. I talk about her constantly. I text people about her, I've made friends because of her. I rally for her and gather more prayer warriors for her! This child has touched SO many lives. She has touched so many people, more than most will in their entire life time.

She amazes me! I love her so much, and I have never even met her!!!!

Thank you Layla for making me a better person sweetheart. You are beautiful, sweet, innocent, and a true angel!!! GOD BLESS YOU and your entire family!!!!!!!!
