Ricker Family Bake Sale – Friday, April 1st – All items $1

Some of you may remember Kristen and Michael Ricker. Two of their 5 children (Joshua & Clara) attended Little Frogs & Polliwogs between 2008 and 2010. As some of you may know, Gwen (the Ricker’s three year old), has been diagnosed with Intussusception. This is a serious disorder where part of the intestine slides into another part of the intestine. This  “telescoping” often blocks the intestine, preventing food or fluid from passing through. Intussusception also cuts off the blood supply to the part of the intestine that’s affected.

Gwen has had a section of her bowel removed. Mike and Kristen alternate days being with Gwen, at the Children’s Hospital, while the other is at home with the other four children.

Gwen has now been diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer. She will need to live at the CHildren’s Hospital for the next two months. She will be receiving Chemotherapy. Mike & Kristen will continue to alternate days in the hospital with Gwen.

This fundraiser is for the Ricker family. 100% of the proceeds will be given directly to the Ricker family. Monetary Donations can be mailed to Northeast Credit Union, 340 Wilson Street, Manchester, NH 03103, Acct# 56502749.
