A Card For Lauryn

Last week I followed a blog hop for this precious little angel named Lauryn who is 2 and 1/2 years old she is undergoing chemo treatments for Leukemia you can read her story below and also there is an address if you would like to make her a card and mail to the hospital.......Today I made my card and will put it in the mail tomorrow.

Isn't she just precious? Let me introduce you....Lauryn is two and a half years old and undergoing chemo treatment for Leukemia.  Her family members are parents, Josh and Elizabeth; siblings, Lily (age 7), Logan (age 5); and grandmother (fellow stamper, Linda Payne).  Lauryn loves princesses and Superman, and her Facebook page too!

Did you know the first dose of chemo takes 35-40 days? So she will be in the hospital for over a month the first time.  She will continue treatment for at least three years with in/out admissions.  The leukemia has affected 35% of her body and her left leg has some muscle atrophy.  They are working to correct that too. 

Many in our stamping community asked how we could help.  Jennie Harper and Patti Painter started to plan and then Jennifer Scull and Colleen Holmes joined them in putting the details and hop for Lauryn together.  A big hug and thank yous to these ladies for their selfless giving of time and heart too.   
The address for sending cards to Lauryn and her family is:

Lauryn Newsome 
Children's National Hematology/Oncology RM 437 
111 Michigan Ave NW
Washington DC 2001

Here is the card I made
