BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Inspired by Fr. Tony Medeiros, and his open letter to Brittany Maynard on the Facebook page, "We Love Brittany Maynard", this fundraiser is launched to show Brittany how much she is loved, how much we need her and how much we want her to live and how much her life can mean even while suffering.
The crowd at "We love Brittany Maynard" understand that she wants her life to mean something to the world. Good can come out of suffering, so for every day that Brittany lives and shares her suffering with the world, this crowd funding effort will raise money to help raise funds to aid in the care for children with cancer.
St. Jude is the Patron Saint of Desperate Situations and Hopeless Causes, so he and his hospital are the perfect intercessors to help give Brittany the grace to choose for her life and suffering to mean something for others which is positive and life-giving.
Donate today or pray to St. Jude for the life of Brittany. Everyday that she lives is another day for which money can be raised to help other children with terminal illnesses.
