Lily Robertson is a sweet Christiansburg 3 year old who was diagnosed with Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD) in July 2012. MLD is a painful and eventually terminal genetic disease in which late infantile patients, like Lily, have a life expectancy of about 5 years. Unfortunately, there is currently no known cure. See the links below to follow Lily’s journey through this disease on her CaringBridge site and learn more about MLD.

Request for mural design

We are so excited that we are getting close to making Lily's Playground a reality! We have raised and collected the necessary funds and are close to finalizing the legal agreement with the mall. Now, we are seeking a graphic designer to design our community mural to recognize all of our generous donors! The mural will be on the exterior of the play area and will incorporate every person who donated to our project. See the flyer below for details and spread the word!

CrowdTilt fundraiser

We truly appreciate all of the support for our CrowdTilt fundraiser and matching campaign! We are over half way to our "tilt" amount of $2,500, which is fantastic! However, if we don't reach $2,500 by Jan. 5th, we don't receive any of our pledges. We are grateful for the donations that we received through our website via PayPal and they will be matched as part of our campaign. However, they will not count toward our CrowdTilt minimum. Also, they will incur a minimal PayPal fee while our CrowdTilt campaign has NO FEES! So, if you choose to support our project through a donation right now, we would encourage you to donate through CrowdTilt, if possible. Thanks so much!

Double your donation to Lily's Playground!

Thanks for your support of Lily's Playground! We are excited that we have raised approximately $42,000 to date with pledges for an additional $8,000 to bring our total to approximately $50,000 toward our goal of $79,000. We have received a generous offer from an anonymous donor to match up to $20,000 in personal donations! We have set up a CrowdTilt campaign to take advantage of this matching campaign. In order to receive our pledges, we have to raise at least $2,500 by January 5th. If we raise $20,000, it will double to $40,000 and we will meet exceed our goal and Lily's Playground will become a reality in early 2014! All donations are tax deductible. Please consider supporting us in our efforts and spread the word! Visit our campaign at
