Give a Day of Life to Sierra

This beautiful girl is Sierra Jacobsen, 14 years old and a freshman in High School. Here is how her Mom, Melissa, describes her: "Sierra is a natural leader. People love to be with her and do what she is doing. Her wit and charm are unforgettable. She walks to her own beat and forges her own path. She is a talented artist, and draws beautifully and abundantly."

Unfortunately, an eating disorder has gradually taken over Sierra's life, leaving her system so compromised that just eating the food she needs could cause a heart attack. She will require at least three months of intense in-patient care to bring her back to a level where she can fight this on her own.  

This wonderful family is now faced with the cost of in-clinic care for Sierra, which is $32,000 per month. If you can, I'd like to invite you to give one day of treatment to Sierra, along with a personal note that can be read to her by her parents. Each day, she will know that friends are praying for her and sacrificing to help save her. 

If you would like to share but find one whole day too much of a stretch, give whatever you can and write a note. (We will have "Love Bundle Days" where she receives several notes.) Any amount will help! Love is the most important thing that you will be giving, so even if you cannot give money, please write a note of support in the comment section below. Sierra and her family need all the love we can give.

It's a New Year, full of hope and promise. Let's give this beautiful girl a chance to start anew. Give one day of life to Sierra, and post this on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter,  and invite your friends to do the same!
