Deklan is an 8 month old precious baby boy in North Carolina. He was the picture of health until Valentine’s Day. He was fighting for his life after he came down with H1N1 and two other viruses.
Unfortunately, it was discovered that he has SCID – a very rare disease that basically prevents him from having an immune system. The only chance he has at obtaining any sort of protection against illness is to have a bone marrow transplant. He is currently at Duke University Hospital, waiting to be healthy enough for the transplant.
His mom is very good friends with my former college roommate. As a mother of two myself, I felt compelled to do something to help them. They are facing upwards of a million dollars in medical bills – $100,000 just to have the transplant that will save Deklan’s quality of life (and possibly his life in general).
22 other amazing teacher-authors and I have come together to create a bundle to benefit Deklan. It is geared towards Math in grades 5-8.
Please check it out! If you are not a math teacher, please share this link with everyone you know who does teach math! The more people we can reach, the bigger of a difference we can make for this little guy and his parents!
