Thank you

In the past 6 hours Maya's fundraising goal has been met.

This has been amazing. 

The texts, instant messages, Facebook messages and phone calls have been coming in, asking if we're watching the page, if we're reloading, if we see the numbers adding up.

Yes, we've been reloading.  Constantly.  Amazed.

Thank you.

Maya's fundraising page will remain up.  Any additional funds raised will go directly to other children who are waiting to have their samples sequenced (not to larger, institute-wide fundraising).  These are kids just like Maya, and they appreciate your support and generosity as well. 

My contact at RGI called me a little while ago to ask if we would be ok with leaving the page up to catch potential extra funds for other kids and we were more than happy to do so.  He also informed me that he had reached out to Dr. Yale to let him know that he should get ready to start sequencing.  He was floored by the speed and generosity of Maya's network.

She's got a lot of people who love her and are cheering her on. 

Thank you.

I think there are a lot of us out here in Internetland who are in awe of what an amazing mom you are and how much you do for Maya. I love following her story; you should really write a book! Best of luck with the sequencing.
