Mom's creativity helps her two Daughters raise money to battle Cystic Fibrosis

Visit her Etsy shop at "> I am a stay at home mom who spends most of her day taking care of two daughters who battle Cystic Fibrosis. Melanie is 17 and Rosie is 12. Melanie and I learned to knit a few years ago during one of our 3 week hospital stays and we have been hooked ever since. Melanie is also the creator of the duct tape creations you see on this site. Last year we started traveling to St Louis Children's Hospital every 6 months for pre-lung transplant care for Melanie. She will need a double lung transplant in the near future. In January 2012 Rosie's health took a turn for the worse. She will also be seeing the lung transplant team beginning in April. It is a 5 hour drive one way for us to travel from our home to St Louis. When the time comes, part of our family will need to relocate to St Louis. At that time we will have two household expenses (staying at the Ronald McDonald house will cost us $750 a month). Our main goal of this etsy shop is to bring in some extra income to help off set the expenses we will face in the near future. We very much appreciate your interest in our creations. Our family has truly been blessed and we hope to be able to share some of that with you.
