Comfy Joey Fundraiser (Coupon Code: BRUCE) *Last night*

This is a company I was interested in doing a review for, and after going to their website I noticed they are doing a fundraiser for a very notable cause: I would really like you all to check it out. This is an excerpt from their website:

"Life can deal a twist of fate that no one can plan for or imagine. Bruce Rosenberg (40) a father of two precious children (Ella 13, Lucy 5) and husband to Julie; has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer. This aggressive form of cancer is considered terminal in most cases, but Bruce is not most people. He is young and has been in great health to this point. That is until his life was turned upside down.

A little over 6 months ago he was diagnosed with this cancer and currently he has undergone 3 major operations to remove the affected areas, but the cancer is still advancing. Out of work, his company has not fired him but has discontinued his benefits; leaving the family to have to pay for Medical (Cobra Coverage) and his life insurance on their own – this amounts to $1,500 per month above and beyond their normal household expenses.

Furthermore they are seeking treatment in one of the nation’s leading cancer centers, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa FL. Being over 800 miles from home does take a toll on the family and the household finances. Bruce is fighting for his life and is undergoing a trial treatment called IL2. Although this treatment is dangerous, it does hold hope for a cure. Both Bruce and Julie need to focus on this fight and not the funds to keep their home and life a float, and that is where you can help this family in need!

From September 10th through the 30th, along with participating retailers will be offering 15% off all orders with coupon code BRUCE. The 15% you save is the same amount we will match with a monetary donation to Bruce Rosenberg and his family. Get a gorgeous sling at a discount and help a loving family focus on the FIGHT.

We would appreciate all effort in spreading word about this fundraiser and promoting it among your family & friends. Feel free to copy/paste in an email, network, blog, Twitter, share on Facebook and post in community forums. Please help spread the word and share this with everyone you know. Thank you!!"

I think we can all agree that this is a noble cause. If any of you are a babywearing family, now would be the time to buy. Your purchase may be what saves this father!
