Friends.
I'm postponing today's Wine Night post 
for a very special reason 
for a very special cause
for a very special little girl.  

I'd like you to meet Zoey.
Zoey turned three in September and is just like any other funny, energetic three-year old.
 Zoey looks a little different and suffers from things like arthritis and an inability to grow.  
Zoey has Progeria.
Progeria is a very rare, fatal, "rapid aging disease" that affects about 80 children worldwide.
Children with Progeria typically do not live past the average age of 13 years; 
devastating statistic that we are helping to change!
This Sunday we are participating in a spin-a-thon with our friends (and relatives of Zoey) to ride for a cure.
I would love it if you could make a donation to my page to benefit the Progeria Research Foundation.  

The Progeria Research Foundation strives to find treatments and 
a cure for Progeria and its aging-related disorders.
With their proven, fast-paced record of success and your support, we can help children with Progeria lead longer, healthier lives.

To make a donation, please go here
Every little bit helps. 
With your support, we can help this cute, active, and happy little girl live a long and fulsome life.

Zoey, Zoey's family, and I thank you for your support.

Also, be sure to keep your eyes out for this filmcurrently showing at Sundance.
It is about Sam, a 14 year-old boy who has Progeria, whose mother and father are doctors leading the way in Progeria Research.  

xoxo,
K
