A Muse Calendars for Charley

Hey guys...I read about this on Wednesday and, well, let me explain. A Muse releases a calendar for personalization every year. Each year, they use the proceeds for charity. This year, the Calendar Project is all about something new called Charley's Fund. When I read the back story on this, I almost couldn't breathe. You see, 15 years ago my son, Taylor, who was 3 at the time, had a strep infection attack his kidneys. We didn't even know he was sick. He just suddenly started urinating blood.

He was under the care of a nephrologist (kidney doctor) for 18 months. Today, he is perfectly healthy. But it could so easily have gone the other way. I'd never heard of strep doing anything other than giving someone a throat infection. But it does, and Taylor had post-strep glomerulonephritis.

We were lucky.

My heart breaks for Charley's family. The least I can do is to help build a swingset for her school by purchasing the A Muse calendars. I hope you will too.

Calendar inspiration here.
