Support Abby Jones and her family, please.

There is a precious little girl, Abby Jones, who is a walking smile and a walking miracle! You can read her story at She was born June 13, 2003, and within a year had undergone 3 heart surgeries and it was two years before she reached 20 pounds. She needs a kidney transplant among other things. The Jones family lives in Piedmont, Oklahoma and were blessed by the kids of the school system selecting Abby for their annual Duck Week fundraising program. The final "event" is being hosted by family and friends on Sunday, March 29th, 2009, 5 to 7 p.m., at Castle Falls (820 N MacArthur, Oklahoma City OK). Tickets are only $5 and include a baked potato bar with homemade chili and toppings, salad and desserts. There will be a silent auction with many items (some of them are really great! There is also a raffle for an opportunity to win an 8-day vacation and many other prizes--all put together by friends! There will be a a Hat Contest (optional) and music solos and more! Please come join the celebration of Abby's life and help us raise money to get the medical help she needs.

If you do not live in the Oklahoma City area, please check out Abby's story on the Caring Bridge (when it asks for the website name, enter "abbyjones") and pray for this wonderful child.


  1. I won't be able to attend (a bit far on short notice!) but will keep her and her family in my prayers.

  2. Thank you so much--prayers are the best gift of all! This is the daughter of my youth pastor. This whole family is a miracle--I've never seen any of them without a smile, even when Abby has been fighting for her life in a hospital! I've been told that they must have $100,000 available before they can get on the transplant list to cover all the medications. The DUCK Week (Doing Unselfish Charity for Kids) is a miracle. Rumor has it that they've already raised $102,000! This will also help with the follow-up heart surgery.
