50/50! And Something to Celebrate

“He’s got a 50/50 chance of survival,” my brother said through tear-filled eyes and a very shaky voice. My siblings and I were all sitting in the living room at my mom’s house, and I’ll never, ever forget that moment. He was telling us about Oakley and the issues he was facing in the womb. Fast-forward to the last bit before birth, and that percentage dropped to less than 10% chance of survival. Oof.

BUT – here we are, about to celebrate Oakley’s SECOND birthday (June 13th)?. In honor of that, I got another call that pulled on some serious heart strings ????????! So much love and generosity being poured out for our little McSquish!

What was the call? ANOTHER matching opportunity! For the next $5,050 (get it, 50/50?!) raised, there will be a dollar-for-dollar match. All of this money will count toward the $20,000 match, and really give us an extra chance at hitting that $20,000 goal! Let’s see if we can hit the $5,050 by his birthday! That’s a couple weeks away ????.

Reminders: 100% of funds raised will go to COTA for Oakley Strong, to assist with transplant-related expenses. And all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Click the “give” button to help! 

Thank you everyone!! Your gifts are appreciated beyond words!
