Please Help!I'm really worried about Mary Beth over at Wampum and the Koufax Awards. Her latest post at the Koufax site says this: "I'm sorry I got behind tallying, but I really have been quite sick. When rales set in, I knew it was probably pneumonia, most likely viral, as the leftover antibiotics I took a few weeks ago didn't even touch it. Of course, we have no health insurance, so going to the doctor is out of the question. Isn't it great living in the wealthiest country in the world, and not having access to affordable health care, even when you're really sick?"
I just sent a donation through Paypal but I know it isn't enough to cover a doctor's visit not to mention the cost of any prescription. Pneumonia is so dangerous and the longer she waits the more likely she will be hospitalized and that is the last thing that she or her family needs. Everyone please do what you can, send a few dollars if you are able, use your blogs to ask others to help too.
If you are able to donate go to Wampum's front page, on the left side bar just below the 2004 Koufax Finalist emblem there is a text link to donate at Amazon and just below that there is a Paypal button to donate there. Let's show our appreciation for the great writing she does at Wampum and the hard work that goes into the Koufax Awards, and show immense compassion for a mother with small children depending on her!
