Hooray for JJ!

Or I should say JJ gives a hooray to an anonymous donor. Seems someone happened to see this story done by the local Fox station's Nancy Perla (there is a video link in the article which should be watched). The word is this person saw a replay of Perla's bit early Saturday morning. Before JJ's Saturday fundraiser even got started, someone called Channel 13 and wanted to get in touch with Maria. I've no idea whom this person is, but they have basically stated they will offer up the entire amount for JJ, including transportation.

I don't really have to say much more about such a gesture.

I am rather certain a couple of other folks played a role in getting this into the ear's of the right media folks, as it got picked up and on air very quickly when some calls were made. They will remain nameless by request. You know who you are, and thank you.

As Stephanie said, we've come to know JJ and Maria quite well, having met under circumstances no one wants to face. JJ came to St. Joe's and diagnosed just a week after Scott.

Watch the video.

At least JJ has her chance now.

Insurance companies and medical costs be damned.

There you go - what brilliant news. So happy for Maria and JJ. As you say, at least she's got her chance. And I really echo your last sentance.

We just got back last night and I thought I'd quickly check in before trying to catch up on some sleep tonight. Couldn't have asked for better news. You obviously all had a great day yesterday and then this news about JJ today. What have you got in store for us tomorrow?!

Love to you all.

I'm sitting here with tears rolling down my face just thanking God that there are people like this who will dig into there own pockets to help others that they don't even know. Time is short for JJ so I just hope and pray that her treatment can now begin and that it proves effective - and life saving.

Please pass on my very best wishes and tell them I will keep them in prayer.
