Art For Molly

This adorable baby is Molly Campbell.  She was born on November 23rd, 2010.  On Christmas Eve she was running a fever so her parents took her to the emergency room.  After hours of waiting and numerous tests, a parent's worst fear became a reality.  Molly was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells that was rapidly filling her little body.  At only 28 days old her sweet life had barely begun.

Molly is two months old now and doing well.  She lives each day at the hospital, undergoing chemo therapy and countless other treatments. She is expected to remain at the hospital for the remainder of her first year of life, if not longer.

You can read more about her story and how to help here.  There are lots of people coming together for fund raising events for Molly.  An Etsy shop called Art For Molly was opened for her cause, and I have donated a design that will be sold exclusively in the shop.  This design was originally a custom order for a mother of twins.  I thought the saying was fitting and would be a good addition to Molly's shop.

To find out how you can help, visit Molly's website.  If you have an item you'd like to donate for the shop or if you want to purchase an item, you can visit the Art For Molly shop here.  The shop is stocked with handmade art, jewelry and baby items from other Etsy sellers.  All the proceeds from sales will be donated to Molly's fund.
