Welcome to Send Love to Cohen! Here you can help us mend Cohen’s little heart.

In Oct. 2009, I received a joyful phone call from one of my best friends, Megan… She was pregnant! This baby was conceived out of pure love after a long battle with PCOS. We were all over the moon happy for Megan & Brent. At 10 weeks, Baby “M” became Baby Cohen, a bouncing, happy baby BOY! Everything was wonderful and perfect, until it wasn’t… At 22 weeks, Megan & Brent were devastated to find out that their little Cohen has CHD, Congenital Heart Defect. He has four defects to be exact; four defects that individually are manageable, but that together are very rare and very dangerous. Thus, our friends began on the long journey to fix Cohen’s broken heart. It is a journey that will take them away from their friends and family to have Baby Cohen at the best children’s hospital in the country. It will be a journey of several open heart surgeries and great expense.

If you have landed on this blog it is because you've heard about baby Cohen and the fight his family is facing to hopefully mend his little heart. The family is being surrounded with love, support and prayers, and they are all eternally grateful. There is so much you can do to help through prayer, support and donations. Many of you have contacted Megan about making donations to help. Her friends and family have created some ways for you to help, they are listed below.

The Design Girl (and others) Send Love to Cohen


I hope everyone who ordered from the Stella & Dot Send Love to Cohen fundraiser are receiving their new pretties and loving them! Maybe every time you wear your new jewelry you will take a minute to think of sweet Cohen :) The fundraiser runs through July 9th.

So many of Megan's blog friends have contacted me wanting to help out in some way, its truly inspiring! There are a few other ways that you can continue to help raise money for M&B's medical bills...

Melissa from Chocolate Bliss is donating 40% of all her profits for the entire month of July to Cohen's Memorial Trust! WOW! Super yummy chocolate goodies :) She can ship where ever you are (+shipping) and also caters events. See HERE

Natalie from Nat Kat Designs is selling sets of 12 note cards (monogram or single initial) for $20 (including shipping), now through the end of July, and all of the profit will be donated to Cohen's Memorial Trust! See HERE

Danielle from The Design Girl contacted me and wanted to donate as well. She is an amazing designer and has done some AWESOME blog makeovers! Now is the time to get that bloggy face-lift you have been wanting!! She is offering a few different options for you to choose from and will donate $ dollar amounts from those. Here is what she sent me:

I met Megan {and her husband Brent} sometime over the past year or two through Megan's blog. When Megan announced that she was pregnant, I was thrilled for her! While she was pregnant, Megan found out that Cohen had 4 heart defects. You can read their story on her blog. They packed up and moved to Texas to be near the best hospital with the best doctors for their son. What amazing parents they already were for this special little guy!

On June 7th, baby Cohen entered the world. He underwent several surgeries and fought so hard to survive. We were all so sad to hear that Cohen went to heaven just 12 days later. He was such an inspiration to so many people and will always hold a special place in my heart and the hearts of those who followed this story. I have never met Megan and Brent, but "know" them through the blog world. It is so easy to see what sweet, loving, and wonderful people they are.

Megan and Brent's friend started a blog for Cohen. She wanted to help raise some money to help with all of his medical bills, so I contacted her to see if I could help.

For the next week, I will donate the following to help with Cohen's expenses.

$20 from every $35 deposit for a blog makeover.
$10 from every $35 pre-made blogger template.
50% of all print at home stationery orders.
