Hi everyone:

I have a favor to ask of you guys. I normally don't post like this on these groups but things are down to the nitty-gritty now, so I must turn to all you guys for help. As many of you know, I have a daughter with Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS). After so many surgeries during her 15 yrs, she will be having the surgery of so far in her life on October 28th: the LeFort jaw surgery (where they break both upper and lower jaws and realign) with a few other surgeries during this surgery. I'm extremely nervous and anxiety-ridden as we head for this surgery.

Many of you also know that I have three wonderful beagles (two are beagle/basset mixes) and right now I'm in the dog contest of a lifetime (with a grand prize of a million dollars)! I've been in this contest for 10 l-o-n-g weeks and there are only 2 weeks left of the contest. Last week, Hoover made it to #11 in the Top 30 Dogs in this contest (out of 60,000 dogs), which many of you are already responsible for in helping to make that happen! Now with only two weeks left, it is urgent that Hoover and I find any and everybody we can find to vote every single day of the last two weeks. It's important to note that each week ends on a Saturday night and begins again on Sunday morning (12am PDT) so the votes are zero'ed out every Saturday night at midnight for another start on Sunday. So it's important that each Sunday begin with a bang! This is why I write to you tonight.

I am sending this to different groups that I'm on; some of you know me as an advocate for families for different reasons, like: cochlear implants and baha's, Treacher Colllins and other craniofacial syndromes, atresia/microtia, deafness, jaw surgeries, beagle and other dog rescue, etc.

I'm at the point of begging now - I need your help. Please read my story in the link below that I posted on the CNN iReport website so you can fully understand what I am asking and why. Then please help me. It's important to note that you vote each and every day that is left in the final two weeks so that Hoover can get as many votes as possible. Please read the story in full so you understand more fully what I'm trying to do in winning this contest. Thank you so very much!

A special thank-you to all the people on these groups that already support Hoover and me, and continue to vote every day. You will never know how much I appreciate all of you.

Judy, Olivia, and Hoover
ps: Hoover needs at least 1000 votes a day; we can do this with everyone's help!
