Fundraiser for Bella Tucker

On July 3, I am fundraising for Bella Tucker along with Miss Massachusetts Teen World, Tamara Sacharczyk, Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, Brooke Bibeault, Miss Pink, Trish Grzela, and Miss New Hampshire National Miss, Shauna Conwell, at our booth at the East Longmeadow Carnival to be held at Veterans' Memorial Field.

Bella is a beautiful 8 year old girl who on Easter Weekend was rushed to the hosptial with a strep infection. Little did she or her family know that their lives would be forever changed. Bella lost all four of her limbs as a result of this infection. She has been between Children's Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Center since Easter Weekend. As you can imagine, the medical expenses are rising each day for Bella's family. We are gathering at the carnival to raise awareness to Bella's story and help raise funds for her ongoing treatments. Bella is from Londonderry, NH, and her dad grew up in my hometown of Chelmsford, MA. My heart has been filled since first hearing about Bella's story, and being a mom, I cannot get her beautiful face out of my head. I am hoping to share and spread my passion for Bella with all of you in hopes of making this a successful fundraiser. If you are not able to attend the carnival, but would like to make a donation, please visit http://www.friendsofbella.org/.
