#TeamTeddy

I was seeing a lot of #teamteddy posts around and didn't look into it until tonight.  Maybe you are wondering too.

Teddy is the 10-month old baby who was recently diagnosed with a genetic mutation called Menkes Syndrome that affects copper levels in the body.  Those with a typical case of Menkes Syndrome, like Teddy, do not live past three years.  His parents are working to raise awareness since early intervention with a copper treatment program can make a difference.

You can read more about his story here, you can donate here, and you can follow his story on Facebook here.  My heart aches for him, his parents, and everyone who loves that smiling angel face.  Please help his parents spread awareness, and contribute to their fund if possible.  And especially...keep them all in your prayers.

Teddy...what a little sweetheart.
