Cards For Addie

I am posting about a story I read this morning. There is a little girl named Addie who lives in Utah. She is six years old and only has a year to live. There is nothing the doctors can do.

Addie has two sisters and her mother who are celebrating what time she has left with her. The girls lost their father last weekend. They are asking for people to send Christmas Cards to Addie and her sisters. It is a way to let them know that they world sees them and that people care. Here is the link if anyone else would like to send a card: http://www.today.com/health/6-year-old-girl-asks-holiday-cards-her-last-christmas-1D80339300

I am spreading the word where I can. My kids and I will be making cards this afternoon so we can mail them out in the morning.

Such a sad affair! I wonder why a family has to deal with 1 loss and another dying in a short time. You should write to encourage her mother, not just her.

What a sad story. I pray for a strong heart for the mother and Sisters to be able to endure this hard time.

I sent my card off yesterday for her and her sisters. I can't imagine going through what that family is.

Done! An excellent cause, to be sure. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they found the cause and could stop it? So sad. So young.
