day 70: Operation Layla

This is Layla {and her husband Josh}.
She is a person. She lives and breathes just like you and I.
And yet, she's crippled by pain nearly every day.
Could you imagine?
She's not disabled or handicapped, but she was diagnosed with early stage cervical cancer after her 30th birthday.
Now, three years later, Layla's doctor believes that she may have pelvic adhesions, Endometriosis, and cervical stenosis. This cannot be confirmed without laparoscopic surgery, and Layla has no way of paying for this procedure.
Thus, #OperationLayla was born!
A band of bloggers and twitterers around the Internet got together virtually and planned out how to help this extraordinary young woman.
In less than 48 hours, #OperationLayla has earned $4k {the amount Layla needs for her surgery on March 22}. Without these funds, Layla would not be able to have surgery, as she cannot afford it and her husband's insurance deems her condition "pre-existent."
Layla still needs your donations though to pay for pre and post op visits and her recovery in general.
If you would like to help in some way, there are many options.
1. Prayers
4. Auction/Sell Items and Donate the Earnings

I would really appreciate any and everything you could do for Layla {and I think it goes without saying that Layla would appreciate your generosity too}!
