Necklace Raffle Cystic Fibrosis-please read

Kyndall Ann Lowe

Kyndall Ann Lowe was born on a warm summer day on July 28, 1987. She was a vivacious, imaginative, spunky child who loved horses, being with friends and family, discussing spiritual matters beyond her years and eating delicious food. She was known to be mischievous at times, as well as keeping everyone on their toes. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a toddler and although cystic fibrosis wasn't who Kyndall was, it certainly was a big part of her life. She had many challenges and rough hospitalizations, but on Jan. 11, 2011, she won her battle with CF.

Those who attended her memorial service were asked to wear purple in her honor. At that time it came to me to make one of my button necklaces in her honor and wear it to the service. I am now offering it up for raffle with all proceeds to be sent to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Kyndall's memory.

Raffle is closed and the winner was Kathy B of Raleigh NC.
If you still want to help you can click here to make a donation directly from the CF web site.

CF Cut short the life of this sweet young lady. Prevented her pending marriage in April and put an end to a photography & graphic arts career that was just getting started (see graphic at the bottom of post). But.... Through research, the life expectancy of CF patients has increased dramatically. When she was diagnosed her family didn't even know if she would reach the age of 18, she made it all the way to 23.

Kendall's battle is over and she is resting now. But the battle still rages for so many.

I'm offering chances to win this necklace for $5 each and all the money (after paypal gets their fees) will go to CF foundation. Drawing open to anyone, domestic or int'l. Use the buy now button below to make your donation (if you wish to buy more than one chance, simply change the quantity when you finish out the transaction). You will be entered once for every $5 donation.

Lovely Margo. Her work is art and would make a beautiful print. Perhaps that would be possible?

Wow, you are so sweet to do this. Just think...if everyone who read this donated the $5, it would add up fast!!!
So sorry for the loss of this beautiful young lady. But glad to hear she's in a better place...with no more suffering.
Thoughts and prayers, Laurel@chippingwithcharm

Margo. I stumbled on this when looking at another blog. My niece was born in October (2010), and immediately diagnosed with CF.
Me and the rest of my family have dealt with the shock, and now we are just praying for the best. This disease is so horrible, but the treatments have come a long way.
23 years seems so short. :(

Margo, my niece was born this past October 2010. She was immediately diagnosed with CF.
Me and my family are dealing with the shock/grief/fear, and I think we are all just praying for the best. What an awful disease. 23 years seems so short :(
I found this through another blog I was perusing -- thank you! May God give us all peace. (AND A CURE!!)
