Card Drive for Emma

Karen H. here today and I am sharing a card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps and sent to a special little girl named Emma who has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I learned about a card drive for Emma on this blog post. Here is a note from Emma’s family:

Tuesday, October 22, Emma went in for a quick check of a persistent cough as well as to address some concerns about her recent fatigue and pale coloring. A chest x-ray didn’t reveal any fluid in her lungs but her primary care physician detected an enlarged spleen. She suggested we take Emma for blood work to rule out mononucleosis. Within an hour of the blood work we had preliminary results of severe anemia. At this point, her primary care physician gently warned us of a possible diagnosis of leukemia. By 2pm that afternoon we were checking into the hematology/oncology clinic at Dayton Children’s and meeting the amazing staff who would travel this 2+ year journey with us.

I sent this card and a couple others, and am asking you to read the blog post and if you can, send one or more cards for Emma and her family to show the world is full of stampers who care.

Thanks for stopping by the Crackerbox Palace blog. The CBP website is being upgraded currently, but you can always email or call them if you want any of the stamps I share.
Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

  1. I love what you did with Peeking Kitty, and what a shame about the little girl. I bet she will love it though.
