Our First Donation!

A very big thank you to Darlene Lisle for being the first person to purchase a Leah's Angel!  In fact she bought two and gave a very generous donation, thank you again!

Leah's Angels are now officially on sale!  If you would like some to sell to friends, families, coworkers, please let me know.  We currently have the packaged into baggies containing 10 small angels and 5 large angels, their suggested donation is $1 and $2.

Due to some "extreme couponing" on my part, I have managed to accumulate 100 hotdogs, about 100 cans of pop and 100 freezies and fudgesicle-freezies (for under $30) to sell at the Garage Sale on June 16th!  So now I just need someone to donate the buns and condiments and we will be all set!  Anyone have connections with a grocery store??

Our middle daughter Hannah has been working with her friends on selling crafts at school and she is proud to announce that they have raised $36 so far!  Special thanks to Hannah, Annalynn, Gina, Camille, Katlyn, Sierra, Annalise, Avalon, Mikeala, Taylor, Erin and any other friends I forgot to mention!  :)

And to our wonderful friends and family who are working so hard to spread the word among their friends, you have our eternal gratitude!


  1. Dear Mrs.Balint,
    What time do I come tomorrow??
    Answer Quick!!!
    Its almost the garage sale and I am making the booth tonight.

  2. It is unconsciousnable to go the States for treatment. We have the top medical people here in Canada. They just want your money and will surely bankrupt the family.

  3. Dear Anonymous, while I can appreciate your point of view, I would have to say, it would be unconscionable to continue to allow our daughter to go without a diagnosis and therefore treatment by ignoring this opportunity. We have given the Health Care system here over 4 years to figure it out and they have been unable to.

  4. It is unconscionable that four years were wasted without other avenues being explored here. What makes you think that the States will give you the answers you seek?

  5. I agree that it is unconscionable that 4 years have gone by with no success, but if you had read the entire blog, you would know that I have begged, pleaded, cajoled, demanded and argued to get her seen by the doctors we have. I have sought out other opinions, approached other doctors and banged my head against the wall of our health system's indifference. I have not just sat back and waited for 4 years!

    Instead of wasting months or years more waiting for more consultations and months and months waiting for an MRI or CT scan or other diagnostics, we are going where it can all be done in 1 week! ONE WEEK! At the end of it we will have more answers if not a diagnosis. And if at the end of that week we are no further ahead, I will continue on with my search for answers, tapping into whatever resources I have to.

    I would love to continue this conversation with you so you could begin to truly understand what you are so blithely commenting on.

  6. I discovered your blog website on google and test a number of of your early
    posts. Proceed to keep up the very good operate. I
    simply further up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader.
    Searching for forward to reading more from you afterward!
