Silpada Jewelry Fundraiser for Katy Lennahan Sleeper

Katy Sleeper (Lennahan) of Portsmouth has been battling brain cancer since spring '12. We'll be raising funds through a Silpada jewelry benefit from now through November 5th.

Katy is still in the midst of her fight with brain cancer. She's keeping her spirits up, and we're still fundraising. We have just a couple of weeks left to raise funds through GiveForward. While we will not reach the original goal of $20,000 (unless, say, Justin Bieber steps in), we've come very far and I think we'll at least make it to 50%. 

Pretty good! 

Katy has a couple more weeks of rest before returning to treatment, and she's been enjoying her break. She appreciates every single contribution and kind word. We cannot thank you enough. 

Now, here's a fun way to bring us a bit closer to our goal: we're holding a jewelry sale! From now through November 5th, you can purchase Silpada jewelry online to benefit Katy. Simply visit the Silpada rep's page on the Silpada website, click "shop now" and then select Lauren Lennahan and Beth Ayer from the hostess list at checkout. 

Please contact Beth Ayer with questions: katy.fund@gmail.com

My prayers are with Katy and her family. Like most "diseases" as we call them, are actually nutritional, mineral deficiencies. Provide the body what it needs and it can amazingly help itself. This is conclusive through fact based studies and implementation by nutritional medical doctors. We're also bombarded by electronic devices such as cell phones, wi-fi, computers, etc that emit electromagnetic waves. Refer to the recent UK Supreme Court ruling that ruled that cell phones can cause brain tumors http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4597109/Mobiles-can-give-you-a-tumour-court-rules.html#ixzz29lIsgwKV. Use a cell phone? Ever get a headache using your phone too much? I'm an advocate and also a believer in proper nutrition and mineral supplementation that the majority of our population is severely lacking. Cancer, tumors and other so called "diseases" are at an all time high. Why? How about GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) foods and now, a very present battle across the globe to label those foods that have been genetically modified. Learn more at www.nongmoproject.org ; do it for you and your children -knowledge is power. Dr. Oz has been an opponent of GMO foods as of recent shows. His Wife narrated one of the most eye opening documentaries on GMO foods. A MUST watch for all parents. The $2.50 donation to watch the movie is worth more than anything: http://geneticroulettemovie.com/ Education and knowledge is the greatest power we possess.
