I have friends, and there is a decent chance they are your friends as well, who could use some help. Their daughter, Luna, was diagnosed in utero with down's syndrome and atrioventricular canal defect. What that means is that her tiny heart formed without ventricular walls which allowed oxygenated and deoxygenated blood to get all mashed up together, delivering an improper amount of oxygen to the blood cells that need it. It is fixable, and thankfully on July 10th Luna's surgery went well and her heart defect fixed. As any of you parents can understand this was a trying time for the family. They missed a lot of work to care for their daughter and I can't even fathom the emotional toll.
I tried to embed a facebook video here, but squarespace won't let me, which is annoying. You can check out the video I wished to embed and meet Dan, Jessica, Lyla, and Luna right here. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152254381211752
Anyway, Dutch Bros. Coffee of Colorado Springs is having a day for Luna and her family and donating $2 from every coffee sold. I was inspired by Dutch Bros. coffee's generosity to my friends and since we don't have those in Illinois, I decided maybe I could use this week's blog in a similar manner.
So, what I'm going to do is place Rex Chase: A Novel, and all of my previous music albums right here for digital download. They are $6.99 a piece and $5 from every sale goes to Luna and her family. I'll leave the links active for the week, so tell all your friends, get a book or some music and help a beautiful little girl and her family. Thanks!
