Saving Isaiah

Image
Buy a cool shirt and help a cool kid. This story crossed my path via a good friend of mine.  At present I don't have the money to help, but someone out there might.   This campaign is for an 18 year old boy diagnosed two years ago with an ultra rare epileptic condition with high morbidity and exceptionally high risk of SUDEP (Sudden Un-explained Death in Epilepsy). All funds raised will all go towards medical and travel expenses. They have a goal of selling 50 shirts, with only 16 purchased thus far.  There are 27 days left.  If you can help, please do.  It would mean the world to myself (Kate), my friend, and Isaiah and his family.

Meet Sandy Ashley

I’m Sandy. I have always loved music. I also love writing. I wrote poems for years. I tried to write books when I was a teen, but I could never get past chapter 3. When I finally decided to write a book again, when I finally got past chapter 3. I thought to myself I can totally do this. I’m a mom of two wonderful kids. JJ is my oldest and Kalynn (Kay is my youngest). I love spending time with them. They are my world.
When my BBFF Katie told me about RRSMS, I knew I had to be a part of it! I have to put a story in each book, so far I have. I’m hoping to have a story in each one. I have done that up until now. I was thrilled to help with I Am Loved. I just know a lot of people find it hard to fit in. I know because I have always had a hard time fitting in sometimes. I also know that it’s harder for people who are GLBT. The fact that all the money goes to help other makes me feel good. I try to help everyone and I can’t always do that. Being able to write things for these books to help ot…
