Tabby Update

(Hat tip, Ethne!)

Fox News has an article on Tabby's status, and she's doing well!

Life is a mix of bad news and good. This sort of good news makes the bad more bearable. Cheers to Tabby, and to her family, and the greatest blessings of Gods and men to all who fought so hard to make this miracle possible.

Prayers for Tabby

I knew, by checking The Chief's blog, that Tabby had arrived. Fox News also offers a report for your perusal. She has her first surgery today.

Please send up your prayers and well-wishes for Tabby. In addition to the cancer on her face and neck, some heart problems were detected. She may need up to three surgeries before she's out of the woods. Other parents can empathize with the love and terror her father must be feeling right now. Please include him and the rest of her family in your petitions to the Divine.

Also, if you can spare even a few dollars, please make a donation to Operation Give.

Get well, Tabby. You have a million friends you will never meet, but we're pulling for you just the same.

Got Delta Skymiles You'd Be Willing to Donate?

They're for little Tabarak "Tabby" Mouhamed, and it's Chief Wiggles doing the asking.

She has doctors ready and willing to donate her treatment, folks. All we have to do is get her over here.

Also, the Chief asks: if someone knows tips and tricks for expediting the visa process, please get in touch with him ASAP.

Just follow the link for the details.

Chief Wiggles needs our help

Read here.

Tabarak Kasim Mouhamed is nine months old, and is suffering with a cancer that is easily and successfully treated in the United States. All avenues of care have been exhausted in Iraq. The severe and spreading angiomas on her face and neck will likely result in starvation or asphyxiation if the cancer is allowed to progress. Doctors believe that with the speed at which the cancer is spreading, she may have only one or two more months if she is left untreated.

In the US, she has an excellent chance of highly successful therapy through the use of steriods, laser therapy and/or surgery.

However, her family is very poor, and the Chief needs help from people like us, who can donate money to help offset her medical expenses, pediatricians and plastic surgeons to perform the surgeries, a children's hospital to provide services and care, and a visa that will allow her to travel to the USA among other things.

Please help.

UPDATE: 9/13/04 I just checked The Chief's blog this morning for news, and help is on the way. There's still a lot to do: donations are still needed; she needs a visa; flight schedules need to be arranged, and so on. Nevertheless, let's take a moment to say a prayer for Dr. Marcelo Hochman of The Hemangioma Treatment Foundation, who has volunteered to handle of Tabarak's treatment. Here's to that little girl's good health, and here's to Dr. Hochman for stepping forward.

Thank you, doctor.

Happy Dance

Guess who's just been approached to do another Toys For Tots drive?

I can't wait! I so cannot wait! I loved doing it last year, and I will adore doing it again!

Operation Shoe Fly

SGT Hook is collecting new or cast off shoes (in good condition, please) for Afghani kids.

We've a few pair laying around the the Little Miss no longer needs, and I'm sure we can pick up one or two more to help out.

The address is here. So is a link to MuNu's own Simon, who will donate $0.25 to charity for each visit to his homepage.
