Hi all - I've been a member here for years, some may remember me pre-kids when I posted a lot more. I started and run the NYC Bills Backers with Billsfanone, the biggest club outside of WNY.

Over the summer my daughter was diagnosed with Infant Leukemia at 9 months of age, its so rare that the world-leading cancer hospital we're at in NYC only treats one case a year. It does not have the same great odds as when diagnosed later in childhood, but she is doing well so far. A bunch of the sites and bloggers for the Bills & Sabres have gotten together and are selling t-shirts for Sally, with proceeds going to her treatment fund. Here is the article where it appeared first: http://www.deargodwh...pportsally.html

Shirts are on sale until Sunday morning. We're also doing fundraisers at the games at McFadden's, as well as a larger fundraiser on 9/14 there. To learn more you can check out www.sweetsallysunshine.com or facebook.com/sweetsallysunshine

Sorry to interupt the pre-kickoff chat, and feel weird posting this, but know we need to ask for help.

Go Bills!

Prayers for you all! As a fellow parent who has lived the "Pediatric ICU" nightmare...your story hits me hard. Sally is a real cutie! Take it step by step and keep fighting!!

since you didn't put it in the post above, I'll 'mention' it for other readers. Direct donations can also be made on the site via credit card or paypal.

Sally and the medical team will be in my prayers. She looks like a sweet little daddy's girl and can't wait to hear that she has been cured. I know we rally around a team but real people and real situations like this one are what really matters.

Your family is in my thoughts. I'm glad to hear the Bills community is helping with the shirts, I'll definitely wear one.

Any chance the mods can sticky this thread?

I follow Sally every day on Facebook, and I'll wear the shirt proudly. Praying that the remission sticks.

Find Your Strong.

Bill having a little one now, I can't even begin to imagine. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family all the best. I wish I would have known about the Bills backers when I was NYC too, we may have been friends.
