hope for addie
SATURDAY NIGHT… HOPE FOR ADDIE with this incredible fundraiser for a sweet baby girl. Head on over to the ROSE & CROWN on May 14th from 6PM on to help support Addie Nielson… “Lots of you may know Andrea, as she has been a familiar face on Nantucket Island for many years. On January 11th 2016, Andrea welcomed her beautiful daughter Adeline (Addie) Nielsen to this world. Within a 48 hour period, Adeline had to be Medivacked to Grand Junction, Co because she started having seizures. They determined that she was a unique case and got sent to Children’s Hospital in Denver Co. She was only 5 days old. After 2 months in the NICU, Andrea and Adeline are now home and both learning to handle the day-to-day routine that comes with her illness which is a rare, incurable brain condition called Polymicrogyria. Since Andrea has had to quit her job to care for Addie, we would like to be able to provide her with funds to help her pay her bills and to be able to bring in a home nurse. Please join us for a night of RAFFLES, MUSIC, and AUCTION ITEMS to help support these two strong and amazing women. $20 donation at the door would be greatly appreciated.” Not on island?
