Prayers For Shannon

Sometimes you think life is dealing you a low blow and then something happens and you realize how trivial your problems really are in comparison.  

Shannon is a lovely young mother of three young children and an artist on Etsy.  Stucco from a facade fell on her neck as she was shielding her baby.  Her injuries are critical and she has endured three surgeries since Saturday.  She is paralyzed from the neck down and the doctors are not sure any of it can be recovered. 

Link to the news story here: Galveston News   When you see the crushed stroller, you will get a lump in your throat.

The Promo Pros on Etsy are holding a BNR fundraiser for Shannon and her family as they will need help with childcare, etc.   The links are here:  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/OTA5MzcwOXwyNzIwNjY1Mzkx/paused-bnr-for-shannon-please-read-rules?ref=pr_treasury
