Cupcakes for Timothy

My best friend's company "The Sassy Cupcake"is holding a fundraiser for this bundle of joy:

Baby Timothy was born in November 2009 with a rare birth defect called cystic hygroma. Cystic hygroma is a malformation of the lymphatic system which causes lymph fluid to collect in hundreds of tiny cysts. Together, the cysts form a large, collective mass. While the cysts themselves are not malignant, their location in Timothy's neck has obstructed both his airway and normal swallowing anatomy. Timothy has had several surgeries including the placement of a tracheostomy and belly tube to assist with his breathing and eating. Cystic hygroma is difficult to treat, with high recurrance rates for most interventions. Although Timothy had surgery at 6 days old to remove much of the mass, it grew back within weeks. He is having his sixth surgery on April 21 and will continue to need these surgeries since the growth continues to grow back obstructing his windpipe, ear, tongue and throat.
Please join "The Sassy Cupcake" in helping to raise money to help with Timothy's daily needs and ever increasing medical expenses. They are selling boxes of 1 dozen assorted mini cupcakes for $20 each. More details can be found on Facebook under: "Cupcakes for Timothy" or "The Sassy Cupcake".

You can't tell me that a box of these wouldn't make your day!

You can contact me as well for an order form. I'll even pick up your order for you and deliver it if you live in Orange County!

What a sweet face and I can only imagine the struggles that the parents are going through. How neat for Melissa to help out with her cupcake sales.
