Wish GRANTed

I've featured Emily Adams & her biz ManHandled several times before. In addition to designing & creating funky cool items, Emily is trying to help her cousin's daughter raise awareness for Mitochondrial Disease. Fourteen year old Delaney is using Facebook to reach & exceed her goal of raising awareness in 10,000 people in one week. She started the page last Saturday afternoon & she's gained impressive momentum. Wish GRANTed is named for Delaney's two & a half year old brother Grant. As stated on the page, every 30 minutes a child is born that will develop Mitochondrial Disease by age 10, and as of now, there is no cure for them. The only hope for a cure is through research and funding, which starts with awareness. I encourage you to visit & like this Facebook page in an effort to help spread the word & learn more about this disorder. For more information, please visit the United Mitchondrial Disease Foundation website.
