Would Love To Have Your Help

Hello, dear blogging friends.

One of our blogging-paper-crafting-friends, Sue Drees, recently shared some sad news.

Her sister, Edith, fell on June 22, and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On June 25, the tumor was successfully removed. However, the biopsy brought back devastating news - a fast growing Brain Cancer. Sue's sister is determined to fight this all the way. She began physical rehabilitation on July 4.

Sue and Edith both live in the North East (USA). Sue and her husband transport Edith's husband to the hospital each day and check up on changes and quality of care.

While Sue did not ask for help, others kept in touch with her and asked if Edith would enjoy receiving cards of encouragement and support.

Sue was so grateful that the on-line community might help in this way - it was something she had not considered.

Edith enjoys quilting and LOVES flowers! Edith's beloved fur baby is a little pug and they miss each other very much.
Will you please consider sending a note, tag, or card (or two or three?) offering encouragement? Edith valiantly fights other illnesses in addition to this new challenge. She is a very courageous soul.

Cards can be sent addressed to Edith c/o Sue Drees and she will take them daily to the hospital.

To obtain the mailing address, please write:

Thank you for making a difference in one person's life, by bringing in a little sunshine.

If you'd like to post this information on your own blog, feel free to copy and paste it into a post.  The more people we reach, the more cards will be there to encourage Edith in her fight.  And if you believe in the power of prayer, add Edith to your daily prayers.  I'm keeping her in mine.  :-D


  1. Donna, thanks for sharing this info. I will do my best to contribute. Seems like everywhere we turn, this nasty disease has intruded. Hugs.

  2. Oh Donna, this is such terrible news, but yes, I would love to send prayers and cards. I will send a prayer card for Edith-she will be prayed for everyday over in Rome at a Mass for the sick. Thank you for sharing this with us. Hugs, Brenda

  3. I'm so sorry this bad news had to come, but I'll be more than happy to send cards and keep her in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for letting us know!

  4. Such sad news, but will gladly send my thoughts in a card, thank you for sharing, hugs Carole Z X

  5. Hi, Donna! Thank you so very much for sharing this post on your blog! Edith and Sue will be so grateful (as am I). I have become your newest google follower! hugs, de {Creative Smiles}

  6. Donna, what a thoughtful thing to do for my sister. She is so enjoying the cards she has already received and marvels that folks that don't even know her are sending these beautiful homemade cards to encourage her along the way. Thank you so much for doing this, it means more than you can ever know.
