For a Worthy Cause

One of the ladies on Police Wives Online (PWO) is raising money for a friend named Carol to help pay hospital bills. She's having a neat little blog auction, and she's putting up some really cute stuff!

Go check out the story and the neat stuff that's up for bid.

From her blog:

Carol Decker had an emergency c- section on 6-10-2008. Afterward she developed life-threatening hypotension from septic pneumonia. Her medication resulted in blocking blood flow to her legs, left arm and eyes. Carol had both legs below the knee and her left arm amputated. She is also blind. Medical bills have amounted to 2 million dollars. The Deckers have insurance, but out-of-pocket expenses are a lot. While insurance will cover prosthetics, they will not cover physical therapy, estimated to cost around $80,000.

Note to Self: $45, 50, do I hear a 55?
