Mission: A Token of Love!

In memory of my daughter, Samya Tiffanie Pressley Scott. [masked] to[masked]

My daughter was as special as a pink grasshopper.

We had her for 11awesome years. In 2005 she was diagnosed, treated and called back home. Mya suffered from Auto Immune Hepatitis. Something that no mother is able to protect their child from....I know because I tried.

Autoimmune hepatitis (https://www.google.com/url?url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001291/&rct=j&sa=X&ei=hQqDT9XDBI6y8QSpu_i1CA&ved=0CDMQ4xIwAA&q=autoimmune+hepatitis&usg=AFQjCNETnzyEQU-Mr8OwnxR_JyvoPzCTuQ&cad=rja) is inflammation of the liver that occurs when immune cells mistake the liver's normal cells for harmful invaders and attack them. Symptoms: Abdominal distention; Dark urine; Fatigue; General discomfort,...

In 2005 I found myself in UNC Chapel Hill, NC. My family enjoyed the service we received from Ronald McDonald House Chapel Hill. Although we did everything possible from alternative treatments, diet, fasting and praying to trying my best to get along with her father. (We were in a huge custody war over her)

She waited at UNC Chapel Hill to get a new liver .While there she singlehandedly planned an entire surprise birthday party for my mom from her bed and as weak as she would be at times, would still go to hospital school and keep a journal were she asked for a healing. This went on for 5 months.

If someone would have told me that she would be leaving us at just 11years old. I'd ask if they were on medication. This child extra special.We laugh more than we cry when talking about her.

A lovely dancer traveler comedian a hair dresser "Bratz in training" both big and younger sister beloved cousin, niece , grand daughter,god-daughter & friend Her teacher would call one day asking me to pick her up, talk to her. The next she would call & ask if she could take her to dinner or hang out with her over the weekend.

It's her 18th b'day, help me celebrate!

Although she's no longer walking the earth with us any longer. Each year, we celebrate her life. With this being her 18th birthday. We wanted to do something greater. We will give back this year.. by shopping.

I am asking all the mothers of Charlotte, NC to join me in a little shopping trip. It doesn't take much. Actually all we need is your coupons and skills.......and a little word of mouth!

Shopping trip to benefit the families that visit Ronald McDonalds House in Charlotte, NC.

Allow Families to Face the Weight of Illness Together

Families are stronger when they are together, which helps in the healing process. By staying at a Ronald McDonald House, parents also can better communicate with their child’s medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. They can also focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning or cooking meals.

Do you have any coupons you'd like to share? Coupon mamas, wanna help stretch our tiny budget? Would you like to donate new items to give? My personal budget is $180. Sure, its not much, but I know with the right help, it will make a huge difference. I along with a mom /master shopper (friend from my church) and my online buddies at Diva's Doing Coupons (https://www.facebook.com/groups/DDCoupons/)

will be shopping and delivering everything on this day. Feel free to meet us there & join in as you feel free. Should you have any questions or comments regarding this day, give me a call[masked]!
