Seeking Sponsors for a Fundraiser Auction Benefiting Liam, A Neurofibromatosis Warrior!

Hi, everyone! I hope all is well! I am currently putting together a fundraiser auction for my son, Liam, who was diagnosed with a condition called Neurofibromatosis when he was just over one year old. This disorder causes tumors to grow in the brain which can cause a variety of health issues. We found out then that he had  two tumors, but they were not growing and would be monitored closely by his neurologist. However, in September everything changed. His tumors began to grow and, at three years old, he began chemotherapy to help stop growth and shrink the tumors. He has been going through treatment since October, with two hour trips to and from Atlanta each Friday.

He was actually doing pretty well with treatments and we were hopeful a few weeks ago when he got his MRI. A week later we found out that the tumors were not shrinking, but, in fact, they had grown, almost doubling in size. We just began a new chemotherapy that will be much more intensive, with trips to Atlanta each week for at least 6 months. For this reason, we are reaching out to companies, representatives, and brands to help support Liam in his battle against Neurofibromatosis. 

We are currently looking for sponsors to participate in an online auction to help raise money for Liam's treatment and expenses. We will make an auction via my Children Teaching Mama Facebook page with all proceeds going towards Liam's expenses.The auction will also be advertised through several other blogs with PR1-PR4 ratings to increase interest and viewership. In addition, we will constantly advertise via Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Each sponsor will be featured in a photo with their name, website link and any other information you would like included. As a PR3 blog with over 40,000 combined followers, I know sponsors will be pleased with the advertisement received.

If you would like to be a part of this worthy cause by donating items to be auctioned, please email me at childrenteachingmama@gmail.com or you can even donate money by clicking here. If you know someone else who might be interested in sponsoring, please feel free to share this information with them. We already have some awesome auction items, including a Sibu Beauty Spa kit worth $125, a $50 Novica gift card, $100 My Little Legs gift card, Zipz Shoes, and many, many more! This is going to be a great auction!I often write about Liam on Children Teaching Mama, but we have also created Liam's own blog. Life With Liam and Facebook page, so friends and family members can keep up with his progress and support his fight with NF. 

Please let me know if you have any questions at all about the auction. Thanks to all who have already donated in some way. We really do appreciate you and thank you so much for your help!
