CAMP SUNSHINE A RESPITE FROM THE DAILY GRIND
Its 4 am and we are getting ready to go to the hospital (or the spa as we lovingly refer to it) for the last time. This time Mel is going to get her bone marrow transplant She'll be in Egelston Childrens hospital for about a month or so and then move to Atlanta Medical center for about a month or so. After that she gets to come home which should be some time in October assuming nothing unexpected happens. After that she basically can't leave the house until January. Actually its not that she can't leave the house she just can't be around other people until then.
For the people who are reading this for the first time my daughter Melissa has leukemia and is in treatment for it.
One of the things she really enjoys is getting cards from as many people as possible her goal is to get something from every state in the united states and as many foreign countries as possible. I'm listing below where we have already gotten cards from but just because we've already gotten a card from where you live please don't let that stop you from sending another one. The more she gets helps to keep her spirits up.
So that being said these are the states we need a card from: Connecticut, Nebraska, Rhode Island, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Thats only five states so if your reading this and you live in one of those states please send a card. Once we get a card from those five states we will have one from every state.
These are the foreign countries we HAVE gotten cards from but we have would love to get More :)
All I can say is please please please send more cards. Melissa is in for a long haul and the more cards she can get will help her keep her spirits up and get through this that much better.
The best place cards can be sent to is:
95 W Forest Dr.
Covington GA, 30016
Thank you all for your help, and feel free to post this in any place you think that it may get out to more people, the more people who see this the better.
