    First and foremost I would like to mention that Lilly has gone into remission and hopefully she will be at home soon. This is definitely great news, but there is still a long road ahead, she will have 2 ? years of treatments and lets pray she does not have a relapse. Second, I am overwhelmed with the response of items and services that have been donated to be auctioned off to help out the family. Remember all proceeds from this auction will go directly to the Bendell Family. Once the auction starts it run until midnight of the 27th. If you are interested in placing a bid on an item please reply to this thread with the item # and your bid, however I will take email bids from those who are not on this forum and want to bid on an item. If an email bid is received I will post the date, time, and amount of the bid. Email bids can be sent to matt.masters@aol.com. This way everything is public will be seen on this forum and under this thread, this is a public auction. Please no bids by private message, this will allow for ease of tracking bids being placed in the correct order. I hope everyone understands why I am choosing to handle the bids this way.

    If there is not an item you are interested in bidding on, and want to help out the family you can send in donations for the family. Donations can be sent directly to http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/cure-for-lilly/77894. Also, payment for all items or services for the auction will need to be sent to the link above. When you go to make your payment, please leave your name or screen name, item #, and a message for the family if you would like. Shipping will be the winner’s responsibility unless noted otherwise. Please choose not to hide the name or amount; this is the best way for me to track the payments as they are received. If for some reason you wish not to send payment to that link, please get with me and we will figure out a way for payment to be sent and the money go straight to the Bendell Family.

    If you win a service either the person donating the service or I will issue a certificate that you will send in to redeem the service that is being offered.

    Once, again I want to thank everyone involved and please continue to keep the family in your thoughts and prayers. If I have missed anything, please feel free to ask. This is my first time actually organizing something like this so please bear with me.
