Topic: Need Web Designer - Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation

Many of you have probably heard about little Layla Grace, a 2 year old girl who passed away recently due to Neuroblastoma cancer, which is one of the most common forms of cancer showing up in kids these days.  You can read more about her at

Anyways, it's quite an amazing but sad story, and even more amazing at how quickly the word has spread about this little girl, and also awareness about Neuroblastoma cancer.  Her parents, Ryan and Shanna Marsh, started a Twitter account (@LaylaGrace) to notify family and extended family of what was going on with her when they initially got the news from doctors of her condition.  Her follower count significantly grew to over 46,000 followers within a matter of weeks, after Shanna Marsh was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.  Layla Grace's story spread even more through tweets from some of Hollywood's most popular celebrities, such as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Jenny McCarthy, and others.  There are literally thousands of people who have heard about Neuroblastoma cancer, as a result of Layla Grace.

Ryan, her father, told me today that they are receiving 5 million hits per month on their site due to the significant traffic coming from Twitter.

So anyways, all that to say that Ryan and Shanna Marsh have started a 501(c)3 foundation to promote research/funding for Neuroblastoma cancer, as well as help families who have kids fighting cancer.  It's called the Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation.  They are looking for a web designer that can help create a website for their foundation, so that they can continue the fight for kids battling Neuroblastoma cancer.  As you can imagine, money is pretty tight for them, since their medical bills put them thousands of dollars in debt.  They also have 2 other kids they are caring for.  So, this web designer would need to be willing to work pro bono.  The great benefit though to working on this project is the extremely large visibility that you will have to literally thousands of people visiting this site around the world.

If you are interested in this project, please contact me, Spencer Barfuss, at if you are interested.  Also, please send a link to your portfolio so that we can make a decision.
