We have got a lot of exciting things going on and announcements we were gonna save till Monday but we just can't wait, we're gonna be slowly bringing ya up to speed on some of what's been going down the last couple of weeks while we've been away from our page, we haven't forgotten about you, we PROMISE! Was gonna wait til Monday to catch up on it all, but we're gonna let ya know about one of the super exciting things right now.
Remember that big garage sale we did last summer?! Remember how sad we were on Friday when there was only one day left of the sale?
We call us crazy, but we're doing it AGAIN!! We've got $7,500 standing
in the way of completing all of my dental work, and our next mini-goal
to tackle is raising $3,000 for my next most immediate need/dental
procedures, as you all might remember, the dentist is where all of this
began so there's a lot riding on this dental work.
important because two years ago this August, the day before I started
Mazvita's Angels, I was told I had a series of dental work to fix the
issues that have stemmed from that original root canal/the cause of my
illness, which is still unknown, but this dental work potentially could
lead to my full recovery, or be another stepping stone in nailing down a
So, with those discoveries, then there was the
question, how in the world are we going to pay for all of this? At that
point it was $12,000 worth of dental work, which has no come closer to
$15,000. LET'S DO A FUNDRAISER, I said to my husband, literally the day
after I told him absolutely no never would I ever do or ask anyone to do
a fundraiser for us. But, a lot can change in 24 hours lol ;) and here
Doing this fundraiser and crafting for a cause, a cause
that I came face-to-face with the fact that I was being called to fight
for and advocate for myself and others in similar situations facing
similar frustrating battles in the expensive and arduous task of
pursuing medical care and treatment when the doctors are not able to
diagnose exactly what it is that is wrong, how it happened, and what to
do to fix it, has become something I am deeply passionate about and a battle I never want to stop fighting.
Through this fundraiser, and the final impetus that led me to start Mazvita's Angels was in realizing, I am not alone. That although it seems rare, it is actually not as
uncommon as one would think, most neurological disesases can take 6-8
years to diagnose. I remember a nurse practitioner telling me that in
April 2010, a month into being sick and two months before I was getting
married and just looking at her secretly telling myself that was NOT
going to be my story. Well, we all know the reality that we are not in
control and not able to control things like medical and health issues,
but one thing that has made all the difference for me is following where
God has wanted to take me in this journey to find hope and life in the
midst of this, one huge way has been through the crafting and doing
It has been a true blessing and a joy,
something incredibly life-giving and something that I feel blessed to
get to be a part of. Thank you for being with us on this journey and for
your support of Mazvita's Angels.
LOVE YOU ALL!
