Support for Lauren

I have a friend, and she is suffering. It isn't fair!

Lauren is my friend. I have never met her in person. I have never talked to her on the phone. However she is my friend, and I hold her near and dear to my heart. I have "known" Lauren through my online baby board for several years now. She is a wonderfully devoted wife, mother and friend. For much of the time I have known her, she has suffered from many health ailments, but she has never been a complainer. The last week of June, she finally got some answers to what has been plaguing her. She has Lyme Disease. Even though I have known this diagnosis for a little over a month now, it has taken me this long to process it. I know very little of this disease, and it is said to be a secret epidemic. Through Lauren, I am learning so much more. Here is one of the sites she has found most helpful!

Lauren is brave. Lauren is a fighter. Lauren can beat this and be healthy again. I just know it. I do believe, however that she needs support. I believe that she needs lots of positive support to keep her mind on the healing path. An inner voice is urging me to help her make this happen. Lauren has been on my mind a lot lately, and I finally decided to take some action. She is just embarking on this road to recovery, and I feel she can use all the love and support she can get.

Help get the word out about this disease, and Lauren's journey. You can simply right click on the icon and save it to your computer. Then upload it to the host of your choice, and place it on your Blog. You may choose to make it clickable, as I have, so that it will lead people to Lauren's Blog of her Lyme Disease journey.

Corey, if you use the html code from photobucket and substitute Lauren's web address for the www.photobucket.com address it will allow it to be clickable and go straight to Lauren's site. I think it's a wonderful idea to support her and I've already snagged the image and put it in my side panel. :D You are an awesome friend!
