Please Help Ivy
Ivy is a two-year-old girl living in Australia who has a rare immunodeficiency disorder called pemphigus, which causes her extraordinary pain and horrifying blisters as her body attacks her skin.
There is a transfusion treatment that she needs and that is available, but the Australian National Blood Authority is denying her that treatment.
A petition has been started to reverse the decision. No money is being asked, just your online signature. You can find the petition here.
Veronica, over at Sleepless Nights, has a wonderful, informative article on Ivy and her situation.
