Let's go Vinny's Carnival...

One of my close friends here, Sarah, has a little boy, Vinny who is 4 years old. I met Sarah, Vinny, and her daughter Desi, and husband Charlie, through my mom's group and Vinny also goes to the same school as Drew. Vinny is such a sweet little boy and was born with a severe cleft lip, cleft palate and a heart defect. He has had many surgeries throughout his life and is such a trooper. Recently he went in for a quick surgery and ended up finding out that he has Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer.
Vinny has been coping by baking lots of yummy cookies and cakes for the nurses at the hospital. How sweet is that!
This weekend there was a carnival at a local church to raise money for Vinny. They had a silent auction, games, and some inflatables. Drew had a great time and keeps asking to go to Vinny's Carnival. He seems to think it is a regular place to go, not just somthing we did over the weekend.

Please say a little prayer for Vinny and his family and If you want to read more about Vinny, his progress, and more you can read his Caring Bridge Site:
