Remember that post I did a while ago. It was about Kennedy’s Kottage, the big gingerbread house that most of you bought tickets for. Well, the TDT family is doing another fundraiser called Kennedy’s Karnival for Kennedy. 100% of the funds that are made will be given to Kennedy and her family. There will fun games, vendors, food, a silent auction, a petting zoo, a photo booth, a bake sale . and more! The carnival is April 29 12-5. After the carnival, the will be a Dance-A-Thon, it will be for the TDT kids. I need sponsors for the event. Here is a flyer that will explain everything.
Here is the situation in Kennedy’s own words.
“Hi, my name is Kennedy. I have Pediatric Lupus SLE. Because of the lupus my immune system sees some of my other systems as an enemy. It is attacking some of my systems like it would rid a virus from my body. One main part of my blood stream that it is attacking is my platelets. This caused another disease called ITP. I am hospitalized every couple of weeks because my platelets get critically low. The treatment for this is called IVIG, but his is just a band aid on the real problem. It only brings my platelets up temporarily before they drop back down to critical level.I take several medicines a day, and I get chemo therapy that helps temporarily. I am getting ready to to New York because my doctors at MCV do not know what other treatment options they can do help my illness. This is a hard disease to fight every day, but other people’s love and support helps me a lot. With everyone’s love I know that I am not going on this journey alone.”
