Hank Gibbs, the 7 year old nephew of one our subscribers, has been diagnosed with Parry Romberg Syndrome. This rare and incurable illness causes facial atrophy, meaning it causes half of the face to "waste" away as well as neurological problem like migraines, seizures and strokes. The family has found a doctor in New York who can treat Hank and "Helping Hands for Hank" is a fund raiser to make the trip possible.

We know it is short notice, but for such a good cause we wanted to get the message out to our subscribers. If you are interested in attending or learning more about Hank, the information on the event and the website are listed below.
