-Thursday Thirteen #6

All About Jaden! 
Have you heard about Jaden?  He is the son of one of SupahMommy's friends.  He is a sweet little boy who has Metastatic Neuroblastoma.  For Thursday Thirteen this week, here are some things that you can do.....

1. Read Jaden's story, get to know about him and his family so that you can get an idea of what they are going through.
2. Pray......and then pray some more!!
3. Jaden's mom isn't able to work right now, she has to be there with him 24/7, and with only one income coming in and all of those medical bills I'm sure you can see how much extra stress that family has that they just don't need.
4. There is a project called Wishes for Jaden....all you have to do is take a picture of yourself with an encouraging message to send to the family!
5. November 24th-December 6th SupahMommy is going to have an online auction to benefit Jaden and his family, get an early start on Christmas and bid on something!

6. Hosting an online auction sounds like a big job, doesn't it?  If you are thinking to yourself, "I bet that SupahMommy woman could use some help with that" would be correct!!   
7. And now that you know she is needing help, I bet your next thought is, "I wonder how I could help her?"...well I am here to tell you that it will be easier than you think!
8. And you can start right now!!!  
(because the auction starts on the 24th y'all, and we need to get a move on this!)
9. If you own a business or you are crafty, you could donate something to be auctioned.
10. She is looking for gift cards, handmade items, sports stuff....anything that she can auction off.  
11. Even if you do not own a business, or if you aren't particularly crafty, you can help.  Supah needs lots of gift cards......she isn't asking you to purchase these cards yourself, what she needs is for you go to businesses (and she has a list of suggestions for you to look at) and ask them to donate!  What could be simpler than that?  
12. If you are a super blogger (you have over 200 followers) and you don't craft, and you don't feel comfortable soliciting donations, you can still help!!  Auction off a guest post on your blog on a high traffic day!  You can help Jaden and maybe even make a new friend!
13. Blog about Jaden......and grab one of his buttons.......there is one for his story (Supah does an update every Sunday!) and one for this auction........

........And this one is so important that it gets to be mentioned twice.....please Pray!!

Have a great Thursday y'all and if you want to play along with all us Thursday Thirteen folks, just go here!


  1. That poor family! My heart goes out to them. I will try and donate some money. I can't even begin to imagine how horrible it must be. God be with them. I hope they are successful in receiving help. God bless Jaden. I will grab his button.

  2. This is the best Thursday Thirteen I have seen. <3

  3. I can imagine the stress and burden. My thoughts go out to them.

  4. They will be in our prayers!

    I am sharing the new and addictive Fun Memes I just joined.

  5. What a wonderful post from the heart! My husband and I danced two years ago at a local high school to raise funds for neuroblastoma. I'll be thinking on what I can do. I don't have 200 followers, but I do receive many comments on my post so I assume you mean "amount of traffic?"

  6. What a brave family, having to go through all that.

  7. These are very good suggestions and well done for posting them. 'Neuro' particularly caught my eye when I read Metastatic Neuroblastoma. I have been on things 'neuro' lately. I send my positive thoughts and will pray for Jaden. Poor baby (this is making me cry).

  8. What a heartfelt 13!!!

    My 13 is posted...I'm talking Turkey today. It's posted below my Thursday Thunks, so if you can find time to visit, just scroll down a bit!!

  12. Jaden, and his family will be in my prayers. I cannot imagine what they are going through....Excellent TT! I will go read Jaden's story now.

  13. Wow. That IS quite the story. And good for Supah Mommy for not sitting around and wallowing in the sucky parts. I admire her for taking action!

  14. i have heard about this lots of other places and i know they appreciate you sharing the info with even more bloggers

  15. Prayers for the family, on it's way....

  16. I've added Jaden and his family to my prayer list and plan to check out your links to find out more. Thanks for taking this opportunity to raise our awareness of this need.
