Brother John Bridegroom's Little Girl Needs Your Help
John Bridegroom is the art director for the Journal of the Masonic Society, and also operates The Master's Craft, a maker of fine Masonic products. His daughter is 8 years old and suffering from leukemia. In a few days she will undergo a bone marrow stem cell transplant in Indianapolis at Riley Hospital for Children. As you can imagine, this experience has put a tremendous strain on the family, financially and emotionally. They have been commuting from northern Indiana back and forth to Indianapolis for two years, a three hour trip.
Donna Donley has set up a website to take donations for Phoenix and her family. They are attempting to raise $5000 to defray some of the extraordinary costs of this ordeal. Let's pull together as Masons to help this incredibly resilient little girl and her family during this difficult time.
From Donna's site:
Only 2 days until Phoenix starts her 3 month stay at Riley's ! Please continue to like & SHARE this post to rally support
Now that Phoenix has relapsed....she needs our help more than ever!! The family is struggling with the financial burdens of having a child with cancer, of not being able to work, medical expenses, travel back and forth from home to Rileys Childrens Hospital, meals away from home, and living away from home..
This unbelievable little girl has fought harder than anyone can imagine and still wakes up with a smile. She has uplifted so many people. Not only family and friends, but complete strangers that follow her story on Facebook and share their stories of similar battles......
Please join Phoenix's team.....we need all the help we can get!
