Rock Out for Ryder Benefit

Ryder Has Neutropenia

Ryder Arnold is fifteen months old, and like Ariana-Leilani, has the rare blood disorder Neutropenia, which compromises the immune system.   Although Neutropenia is a non-cancerous disease, many treatments are the same as cancer patients constantly monitoring the ANC (a count that reveals the immune system’s strength), bone marrow biopsies, and takes Neupogen injections each day to help boost the immune system.

At this point, Ryder’s prognosis, like Ariana-Leilani’s, is unclear.

Friends of Arnold’s have organized a benefit for Ryder. They have named it “Rock out for Ryder.”   Some of the proceeds will be donated to the Ella Jewell Foundation, which is a Neutropenia research foundation named after a little girl who died of Neutropenia.  Rock Out for Ryder will take place on Friday, May 16, at the Music Union Hall (116 N. Green Street). Three rock bands will perform: The War I Survived, Mudoon’s Clever Girls, and Canzo. The show begins at 7 p.m., admission is $5 and the event is BYOB. All ages are welcome.

Ariana-Leilani is being denied the Neupogen that is helping to keep Ryder alive.   Please consider signing her petition to get proper treatment:

Local Girl Hoping to Raise Money for Neutropenia Through Special Event

Hoping to help support a better treatment for Neutropenia, ten-year-old Kara Loader, who was diagnosed with the disorder, is hosting “Bowling for Neutrophils” on March 15 in St. Clairsville.  Ariana-Leilani also suffers from Neutroepenia. Neutropenia attacks and kills neutrophils which are the part of white blood cells that fight infections in the body. Kara and her mother, Tammy, decided on a bowling event because they say pretty much anyone can bowl and almost every community has a bowling alley.

Besides bowling plenty of strikes, Kara hopes to accomplish another thing next Saturday. “I would like to get at least a thousand dollars for neutropenia because they’re trying to come up with a pill so I don’t have to take a shot anymore,” said Kara. “That’d be really nice.”

Teams of 5 to 7 people can sign up before hand and raise funds for the event. Their goal is for each team to raise at least 100 dollars. Individual bowlers are welcome too.

Prizes will be given away for the best team name, and for whoever raises the most money. Bowling for Neutrophils will be held Saturday night, March 15, at 5:30 p.m. at St. Clair Lanes, St. Clairsville, Ohio.

For more information, call 740-680-3080.

Leutrell Osborne, Sr. Former CIA Case Officer, Joins Fight to Save Ariana-Leilani

WASHINGTON DC, and GENEVA –8 January 2014 — Dr. Ariel King, President and Chair of the Ariana-Leilani Children’s Foundation International, an internationally recognized advocate for children’s human rights, announced today that Mr. Leutrell M. Osborne, Sr., agreed to serve as the Vice-Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.  Mr. Osborne is an ideal choice because he brings a unique perspective of channeling his international intelligence experience into global peace and harmony.

With the Foundation’s mission dedicated to the advocacy, education, global adoption and adherence of children’s’ human rights, based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), Dr King has been selecting a team of experts since 2009 to help facilitate the treatment of Ariana-Leilani, a 10 year old, who is being denied access to medication that would save her life.  Said Dr. King, “I knew Mr. Osborne was the right person for the Foundation after reading Mr. Osborne’s memoir:  Black Man in the CIA (2012).  The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) hired Mr. Osborne for 27 years and he served as a Case Officer, Communications Security Officer and more importantly, he was a Counter Intelligence officer who has experience identifying, analyzing and neutralizing adversaries in over 30 countries on 4 continents.  With his retirement from federal service in 1994, Mr. Osborne opened his services to domestic and international clients, like our Foundation, and his combination of experiences would add valuable insight into how to address the human
rights of children, including Ariana-Leilani Margarita Alexandra King-Pfeiffer.”

Mr. Osborne’s skill set is exactly what is required for the delicate situation of Ariana-Leilani, a 10-year old dual German/American citizen with a rare disorder, who is being denied access to life-saving medical treatments.  The Foundation’s attorney, Mr. Roy Morris, added, “Mr. Osborne brings a fresh perspective into this fight for children’s human rights, including those of Ariana-Leilani’s.  His experience and understanding of the inner workings of the intelligence community and the “dirty tricks” that some of its members sometimes undertake will be essential for our success.”

Mr. Osborne’s company, The Osborne Group International, improves company cultures and efficiencies for its clients by utilizing teams of skilled risk managers who perform organizational transformations to mitigate difficult business challenges that can arise either from the normal flow of business or from unanticipated contingencies.  Stated Mr. Osborne, “We’ve experienced a lot of challenging situations, similar to Ariana-Leilani’s, where everyone knows what they should do, but maneuvering within the system requires a lot of intelligence. That’s why I’m looking forward to working with Dr. King and the Foundation.  I can bring my expertise, experience, and network of relationships to provide an even higher standard of business, analysis, risk assessment and due diligence support.

The US Department of Justice Asks for Information On DC Corruption Like That Behind the Case of Ariana-Leilani

What Mayor Gray and his administration do not understand is that the more the protective parent raises concerns, the more barriers are placed in-between her and her children. Case-in-point: the ongoing case of Dr. Ariel King and her daughter, Ariana-Leilani (see attached the You Tube video for an update).

Like too many other children, Ariana-Leilani’s life has turned into a race – will justice prevail and Ariana-Leilani get the medical treatment she so desperately needs or will she end up paying the ultimate price for corruption?Sound outrageous and unbelievable?

If you were in the survivor’s shoes, what would you do? Explain all this to authorities? What happens when the authorities ARE the problem? When survivors turn to local remedies, they’re listened to UNTIL the offender’s names are revealed: Judge X, Custody Evaluator Y, Attorney Z. When the issues and concerns of the victim-survivors are ignored, marginalized or buried and business goes on as usual – or perhaps with a retaliatory spin – that’s called CORRUPTION and last I knew, corruption was a CRIME. (Last I knew too, a crime is a crime no matterwho commits it!) and THIS is what the US Department of Justice (DOJ) wants to hear about.

If you or someone you know has been affected by this family court crisis or experienced systemic corruption in a family court-related case — particularly in the District of Columbia — please check out the instructions for submitting a complaint to the DOJ here:

Why We Cannot Take a Child’s Illness for Granted?

Thousands carol to fulfill dying girl’s wish in Pennsylvania.   Delaney Brown, 8, of West Reading, Pa., was dying of a rare form of leukemia but her community gave her all the support it could.  Brown also got to talk to pop star Taylor Swift on her birthday.

Ten thousand people in Pennsylvania came out to sing to a terminally ill eight-year-old girl who has given them much inspiration during her courageous battle with cancer.   On Saturday an estimated 10,000 people visited the home of Delaney Brown in West Reading Pa. The group sang songs and fulfilled one of the dying girl’s last wishes — a huge holiday sing-along outside her house.   Laney arrived home from the hospital Thursday, Dec. 19, according to her “Team Laney” Facebook page. Her doctors have said her rare form of leukemia means she only has a few days or possibly weeks left to live.

She died on Christmas day.

Tell Mayor Vince Gray and President Obama to stop taking Ariana-Leilani’s life threatening illness for granted.  Let’s help Ariana-Leilani before it is too late; sign her petition today: http://www.ariana-leilani.com

Short Video Documentary “Small Cries”; A DC American Tragedy

The Save Ariana-Leilani Coalition is pleased to announce the world wide release of the video documentary “Small Cries.”    The six minute documentary tells the story of how the “child protection” systems in the United States are failing, and how Ariana-Leilani is a victim of that failure.  This short and compelling documentary features exclusive interviews, including an interview with Dr. Joy Silberg, who speaks of the error in judgment that many child protective services make in certain abuse and neglect cases.   Very educational and inspiring, and Ireneo Namboka, an international human rights advocate and former UN official.

Definitely a “two thumbs up” “must see” documentary.
