On February 12, 2007, a little Angel was born. Ava Grace was born to Brandy and Dwight Setliff of Ferrum, Virginia. Born prematurely with Pfeiffer Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Ava Grace has already had numerous surgeries in her short life and she will need many more.

This cause is close to my heart. Parenting is challenging, but dealing with surgeries and other special needs and financial pressures on top of the regular challenges of parenting can be daunting.

Even before The Humble Arts began in March, the artists were discussing what they could do to help the family of this little one. They have decided to plan to host a silent auction for Sept 16 - 22. All artists in any medium are invited to participate by donating one of your handmades. If you would like to help, please contact Blondie Spence through the Ava Grace blog link above. All proceeds will help defray Ava Grace's medical expenses. I'm proud to participate and help this family along with the artists from The Humble Arts.
