News spreads like wildfire. Thankfully in this case.
A close friend of mine, whom I’ve known since childhood, Diana (from Hormonal Imbalances) almost lost her twin boys at 18.5 weeks when her water broke this past Friday. She made the decision not to induce and was forced to fight for that decision up until yesterday when things finally changed. Katherine Stone from Postpartum Progress posted this on Babble to bring attention to the situation and help fight for Diana’s rights. It worked.
All the verbal and written support has been amazing and, since we all know how expensive hospital stays can be, a paypal account has been started in her name (firstname.lastname@example.org) courtesy of Amber from A Day Without Sushi. Check out Amber’s post to learn more: Social Media for Good – How can you help?. I will be joining Amber in chopping off my hair if we get 5000 donations.
Even if you can’t donate, please check out this Facebook Page or stop by Diana’s blog and show your support. Let’s show this hospital and the rest of the world that no one should mess with a mom and her right to fight for her babies.
