A plea for a poorly little lady

Afternoon lovely ladies, I read this plea on Donalda’s blog earlier today and it just broke my heart. Little Alana is only 9 years old and is battling a rare form of leukaemia.  Could you spare the time to send this gorgeous little lady a card to cheer her up?  If so you can contact Donalda here for the address to send the card to.  There but by the grace of God ……

Thanks for taking the time to read this xxxx

  14. I have emailed Donalda Bev, my prayers are with little Alana. XOX Lucy

  15. Ahhh, what a sweetie. Looks like she has a sister as well. My family has been struck by lightening twice - my daughter was born with heart defects and went through many hospitalizations, heart surgeries, etc and passed away 1 1/2 yrs ago and my sister's son passed away from a rare form of brain cancer two years prior to my daughter's death.

    My sister and I completely understand what life is like 'living' at the hospital with one child while trying to care for others who are at home. It is stressful on the siblings as well as the sick child... so I would recommend sending the siblings a little note too so they don't feel left out.

    Bev, you are such a sweetie for asking for cards for this young lady. I'm going to contact Donalda and see how many cards I should send. <3

  16. It sounds like there are lots of wonderful crafters who would love to help a poorly little lady. If anyone is interested, there is a UK charity called Post Pals There is a big list of lots of children with various serious illnesses, and the sorts of things they like and are interested in. The charity aims to send lots of cards, letters, small gifts, etc to put smiles on all these poorly children's faces. There are forwarding addresses for each child and info about their families too, including siblings so they don't feel left out! Just thought I'd mention it as so many seem willing to help - it's so sad to say it but there are an awful lot of poorly children out there.


Thanks for visiting!

Bev x
