#CLT for Charlotte

Our Mom community here in Charlotte is a strong one. One of my friends I have met through this community and through blogging is going through the unimaginable. April Robson writes for Smidge of This and has always reached out to me during my fundraising for Alzheimer's and just in general as Mom's health continued to decline. She makes hair bows for little girls and created one just for Krewe BB and donated her proceeds to our walk. 

Earlier this week April's daughter Charlotte was diagnosed with Leukodystrophy, a rare, incurable and terminal disease. As you can imagine her family is heartbroken with this diagnosis and they are going to spend their next moments loving and caring for their baby girl. 

Currently the family has asked for us to let them have their privacy but if you want to help you can do the three following things immediately:

1. Prayer. This disease can be genetic so we are asking for prayers for the health of her two other children. Also prayer for Charlotte to be wrapped in love and comfort as there is no treatment plan for her at this time.

2. A Go Fund Me account has been set up for the Robson family. Both April and her husband are self employed and the most of these visits are uncovered. This will also help with meals, care for the other two children, etc.

3. There is an Amazon wish list to make things a little easier for them.

April we are all praying for you and your beautiful family and are ready with open arms for anything you could possibly need.
