Hope for Maggie

I never watch the news. I should, I know, but it's often depressing, sometimes wrong and I rarely like what the weatherman has to say. But I am glad my friends watch the news since Vanessa from I Never Grew Up posted about Maggie's story, which she recently heard on ABC 4 here in Utah:

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Maggie Agnew is a bright, 10 month girl who is suffering from multiple medical problems. She has been called 'The Incredible Shrinking Baby' because now at 10 months, she weighs only 10 pounds.

Specialist after specialist has tried to diagnose the problem. But so far the cause of her ailments eludes them as does a treatment.

Her parents now believe that the best hope for Maggie may be at Boston Children’s Hospital. But to go there will cost money — lots of money. And even though the Agnews have health insurance, the copays and deductibles have already left them with a substantial debt.

You can read more about Maggie's story on the family's blog Hope for Maggie. You can support the cause by donating to the Agnew family through the PayPal link on the site.

And as Vanessa said, please feel free to copy this blog post and do your part to help spread the word about Maggie. Every little donation helps! --Emily
