Little Girl's dieing wish

  1. I realize that this is not the proper place for this, but I know alot of thoughtful and special people read this site. There's a three year old little girl who has been diagnosed with a tumor, and doctors have told her parents that she only has a couple of months to live. The little girl loves cards, and wants to get as many Christmas cards as possible this year. Below is her name and addr for those of you who can, and please remember to say a special prayer for this little angel and her parents.

    Dear High-

    Are you a nurse?

    Just wondering?

    Not that I am trying to be picky- small spelling error in your title- should be dying. How old is this child? Are her parents OK with her name out in public?

    Tough situation at a tough time of year.

    JMP,

    Thanks, I was wondering about the spelling! No, I'm not a nurse. I start classes in July, so for now I'm just a wanna be!
    Yes, the little girls parents are the ones who suggested this, so they are totally aware and approving. The little girl is only three. I have a four year old and two year old, and I cannot begin to imagine what these parents are going through. You're right, tough situation at a tough time of year.

    Would it be ok with you Highasthesky if I copied and pasted your thread with the girl's name and address on a couple other forums I visit? That would give more people a chance to see it and possibly more cards sent to the little angel.

    OH NO, I wouldn't mind a bit! That would be absolutely wonderful! It's very considerate of you to take the time to do that, what a great idea! Thanks alot! And thanks to EVERYONE else! I'm sure the rest of you are right along with me when I say that we'd much rather just go to this little girl in person and hold her in our arms, but instead we can picture the smile on her face when she opens cards full of love and know that you helped to put that smile there. God bless you Scarlette, and each and every one who is taking the time out of their busy lives for this little girl.
