Marrow Wishes for the Fish Family

Paging all supermoms in the Salt Lake City, Utah area:

My dear friends Lisy and Tyler have two daughters under treatment for Leaky SCID, a rare genetic disease that causes the immune system to fail. As we can only imagine, supporting one child through chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant is taxing emotionally, physically and financially. Add to that a second daughter going through the same treatment plus three additional healthy kids—needless to say, Lisy and Tyler’s hands are full.

This Saturday, February 25 is a dinner and auction to raise funds to help the Fish family. I’m pleading with our League of Supermoms in the greater Salt Lake City area to go and support this amazing family.

If you don’t live in the area, what can you do? Read ideas here. Also, go donate blood. As a personal note, I recently donated blood for the first time. As I sat in the donor chair, I couldn’t help but think of Lisy’s daughters, Natalie and Alice, and the many other kids or parents or grandparents that could be helped with my donated blood. I’m not a needle person (In fact, I hate all things medical!), and only through my friend Misty’s insistence and thoughts of the Fish family floating around my heart, was I able to do it. I promise, it wasn’t bad at all, and I will do it again!

  1. Our best wishes to the Fish Family in SLC. While everyone is donating blood, perhaps they might want to sign up to be a bone marrow donor too?

    • Hi Steph:
      What a small world! I know them because Lisy and I served in YW together about 6 or 7 years ago. We just love Lisy and Tyler, and we are praying for everyone’s good health and patience. I remember when Natalie was first getting sick and talking to Lisy trying to figure out what was going on. Lisy is a true Supermom, and I love staying up-to-date reading their family blog.
