Cards for Emily

My neighbor, up the street, had to send his 6 yr old Emily to Lucile Packard Hospital at Stanford over the weekend for testing due to complications with her breathing. It turns out that Emily had a collapsed lung and the CAT scan showed a mass around the size of a apple in her medial stinal cavity. The final news was that Emily has T Cell Lymphoma. On March 12th, Emily started her two years of chemotherapy. She's so young, but that's a good thing in her case. With her age and the type of cancer, the odds for remission is good. It still hurts so to hear of the news. She is such a ray of sunshine!

Will you help me brighten up her hospital room by sending her a card or two? Emily would love getting happy mail from all over and her parents would appreciate it so very much. It doesn't have to be hand made! If you read my blog and you are not a stamper, please feel free to pick up a card and send it off to Emily. It's still happy mail to this precious little girl. Emily likes pink, purple, blue, and she likes cats and dogs.

UPDATE: Good news! Emily is coming home from the hospital just in time for St. Patrick's Day! She just might catch a Leprechaun or two in that Leprechaun trap of hers!
Please email me if you would like her home address. I am sure your cards will be much appreciated. We all love happy mail!

If anything, please send up prayers and happy thoughts to the Pepper family and Emily.

love and hugs!
