Help a Blogging Pal

One of my wonderful blogging pals, Donna, at Creative Smiles asked me if I would post this message on my blog. Donna is one of the most caring people on this earth. I told her I would be glad to post it. It will be here for a few days. Here goes:

A Big Favor - Pretty Please?

Hello, dear blogging friends.

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

Her sister 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 her sister Edith 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, I've 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 child is a little pug, and both miss each other very much.
Will you please consider sending a note, tag, or card (or two or three? LOL) 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 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.

Hi, Benzi! Thanks for posting this to your blog. I believe terriavidreader must be experiencing internet problems. All the links work here - and I've received several emails from people having read your post. Thanks so much, BenBen! xo

Oh Benzi, your post just brought tears to my eyes as that's what a family member of ours went through - discovered and dx after he passed out and hit a neighbor's mailbox though walking, talking and normal just hours before. I'll keep her sister in my prayers and utmost uplifting thoughts and will send for the address straight away.

Your post shows such a thoughtful and genuine love -- she is blessed to call you friend :*)
