Itty Bitty Rockstar & St Jude FaceBook Page

For all you Facebookers out there...I noticed today on my feed that St Jude Research Hospital page was looking to choose the cover picture to put on their Facebook page.  Much to my astonishment, there was my bald and beautiful daughter as one of the 3 options!!  If you get on my page I attempted to reshare the link/post.  You need to actually click on the picture of Avery (yellow picture in the middle) and hit like on her picture to count towards the voting procedure.  You can also look at the St Jude Research Hospital Facebook page at St Jude Facebook Cover Contest.  You have to open her picture and then hit like.  Very fun!  Obviously all 3 girls shown are adorable and the last one has a teddy bear, which melts your heart even more....its hard to pick I know.  I of course picked the baldy with purple glasses in the middle, giggling because she just spent 30 mins throwing pennies into the Danny Thomas fountain after a long day of Radiation treatment, sedation and therapies. I am, however, biased.

On another note...thought I would share another fabulous website with you all.  Avery is very connected to her blankets and has been since this ordeal began.  It was a  blanket that spurred on the theme for Team Avery (skull & crossbones) and has continued to symbolize this battle and the strength it requires for her and for us as a family.  That being said, my friend Angie has made it her mission for the last 3 years to make sure Avery has as many of these blankets as possible.  She even learned to sew for her!!  Avery has more skull and crossbones blankets than we can count!  Each one is different, beautiful and amazingly soft.  As a result of all her hard work, she discovered she loved making them....and along came etsy.  So if you are looking for a fabulous gift for a kiddo....maybe one going through something tough like Avery, check out her site.  She can personalize one for your fighter, your snuggle bug, your hero.  Itty Bitty Rockstar
