Please help us!

Lissy is a dear friend of mine, my fellow admin on an Autism/Asperger's/PDD Awareness board, and she has breast cancer. She has faced this with grace, dignity, a smile and a sense of humor that mirrors none that I have ever seen. She has already gone for surgery, twice, with a third on the way to fully remove both breasts, and is in very good spirits. Next comes chemo.



We've been contacted by two fellow Autism moms, yes two, that want to donate their hair to her so a wig can be made for her. The problem is that a wig costs a little over $2,000 to be made from human hair. It has taken a bit of sleuthing around to even find a wig maker willing to accept donated hair that is processed. But the women have done an amazing job and are going for haircuts this week.



We have set up a fund for donations to be made for Lissy's wig. If you would like to donate anything at all, please use the following link. The money goes right to the company making it and it is under the Lissy Fund. This is not something that anyone has to do but I also didn't want these moms to carry the burden of not only donating their hair but also making the payment. So this is OPTIONAL and if you would like to donate, the info is below.



Think of it as paying it forward. Lissy has been an admin for close to 8 months now. She has been an inspiration to many on the board and we all want to wish her well in her treatments and make sure that she knows that we love her and want her to be around to be the leader of Ocrap Fots for a Very, very long time. With multiple children on the Autistic Spectrum and her daughter who is also Mentally Retarded, her children need her to be around, and if there's anything that can be done to lift her spirits I want to use all my resources to help.



And to those moms that came up with this idea, thank you from the bottom of my heart.



This is what we received from the company making the wig:

You can pay by credit card over the phone or mail in a check. The money will go into a special fund for JUST THIS WIG. It will be called the "Lissy Fund", so anyone donating can refer to that name when contacting us.



Also, if anyone sends a donation by check please have them make it out
to: World of Wigs (have them write "Lissy Fund" either on the top of
the check by the name/address or on the "memo" line of the check).



We look forward to helping you raise funds for Lissy.



Regards,
Rhonda Thaut
