This is Ruthie. Ruthie was born without all the functions of her liver, and she’s having a rough time. When she was a baby, a doctor took part of her small intestine and made a little patch up for the missing parts of her liver. But this is only temporary.
Ruthie needs an organ donor, and her operation will cost around $500,000 dollars. Her family can’t pull that money, so all they’re asking for is $40,000 dollars.
With your help, Ruthie can have her surgery. Without her surgery, her body will soon outgrow the patch she has in place.

Ruthie and her family need all the help they can get, Ruthie already has hospital bills piling up, as every time she has a fever, she has to go to the hospital and get her blood checked for bacteria, then stay there for a few days.
Ruthie deserves a life outside of the hospital, and even if you can’t make a donation, it’d help so much just to signal boost this and reblog it, only the pictures of her show up on your blog.
ERICA GOLDSON: Graduation speech
Erica Goldson must have had some serious balls to give this speech
This is beautiful.
this is so wonderful
This hit hard. Our education system is desperately in need of fixing.
"I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning."This 4.0 student last year had full rides to everywhere and still has no clue what he wants to do. I thought that was nuts.
