One In Ten Auction

Eireann of Oh Bara is currently hosting an auction to raise money for her mother who suffered from an aneurysm causing a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding between the brain & skull). She was in ICU for 3.5 weeks, then in physical & occupational therapy (inpatient) for 1.5 weeks. The family was told that by the doctors that one in ten people survive this & very few people are expected to recover. Eireann's mother has astounded her doctors & therapists with her tenacity, her strength, & the progress she has already made & continues to make. She has diminished function in her left side & has lost her hearing in her left ear, but she is expected to make a complete recovery within a year. Although her mother does have some health insurance, a pre-existing condition makes it such that the insurance she does have will not cover things like this. Crafters world-wide have united in donating handmade goods for an auction to raise money to help cover medical bills. The auction will run through August 24th. Check out all the fabulous items that have been donated for this great cause.
