Mama and Baby need your help

My mother just sent me a sad email this morning and I’d like to share:

A childhood friend of my sister’s just recently had a beautiful baby boy, unfortunately now the family is struggling. Please read the story below…

Tessa Paprocki needs your help

On October 16th 2008, Tessa and Adam were blessed with the birth of their son Landon. Just a few days later Tessa heard the word that you never expected to hear from your doctor, “You have breast cancer”. After further testing it was confirmed that the cancer had spread to her liver, lymph nodes and bones.

At just one week old with his mom still in the hospital, Landon’s dad rushed him to Childrens hopital to have a surgery to untwist his intestines. The surgery was successful, however Landon will need continuous monitoring.

Tessa is a strong 29 year old who is beginning her battle against cancer, a battle she’s determined to win. Landon needs his mother and her family and friends need Tessa, and we will need your prayers, help and support.

Please join us on December 19th 2008 at 6:30 pm at Dakota Ridge HS for an Alumni basketball game, silent auction, food, prizes, and so much more. A $5.00 donation at the door gets you in.

PLEASE HELP support Tessa’s fight against cancer.
