Fan Force Global Administrator, Rachel, sent over the following information regarding baby "Princess" Leah, her ongoing struggle, and a new way for fellow fans to help out.

"Many of you may have heard the continuing medical saga of "Princess" Leah Esquenazi. Many of you may already know her parents Zev “DeltaSquadBoss” and his wife Frani. For those of you unfamiliar with their story, Princess Leah has been experiencing terrible medical problems since her birth, just a few short months ago. So far Leah has remained a medical mystery to all those involved in her care. She has been suffering from motor skill problems (seizure like activity and movement), vision, and respiratory problems. The majority of her life to date has been spent in the NICU, where she has been residing for the last several weeks straight. DSB and Frani have been spending every available moment at Leah’s side, watching as over 60 doctors have been unable to diagnose or treat her.

To help the Esquenazi family to help with their mounting medical expenses, “challenge coins” are being produced. ALL proceeds will be donated to the family to help Princess Leah.

Details for the coin order can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150251009686698

Thanks Rachel!


UPDATE: Here is a link with Challenge Coin details for non-Facebook users.

Thanks Mike!


UPDATE #2: Challenge Coin sales benefitting baby Leah and the Esquenazi family end at the end of the day tomorrow (Aug. 14). Order yours now if you have yet to do so!


UPDATE #3: Due to PayPal issues, the sale of "Princess" Leah Challenge Coins has been extended to August 22nd. This will be the one and only extension and the organizers wish to thank all those who have purchased for their contribution and patience.


UPDATE #4: For those waiting for delivery of their "Princess" Leah Challenge Coins, we've received an update informing us that the coins are currently in Customs. Once they've cleared, delivery should follow rather quickly. Of course, that assumes that there aren't further delays with U.S. Customs. All things considered, we just wanted to help spread the word to those who may be waiting for their coins. The shipping process is ongoing but they should be in your hands sooner than later. As always, we'll keep you posted.

Thanks to Mike for the update!
