"Be Positive!" Join us in a Card Shower

I'm helping my friend, Shanna, get the word out in regards to a card shower for a 13 year old girl named Jessie. If you have the time, please put a card in the mail for her to brighten her day and show your support! :) I know it would mean the world to her. Feel free to pass on the info too. Thank you! xoxoxo Shauna

Hello everyone! I am writing about someone really special and I would love your help. Jessie is a 13 year old girl in my son's junior high class. She is a sweet, young lady that is battling bone cancer. Jessie is undergoing chemo and has already endured surgeries for both the cancer and to reinflate her lungs. This girl has been through a lot since her recent diagnosis at the end of April. I am currently organizing a card shower for Jessie, so if you are interested in participating, please do so!! The idea is that everyone would send a card to the P.O. box listed below and we would then be able to deliver a bundle of good wishes to Jessie. This little girl would love to get good wishes from all over!! Jessie's theme is "Be positive" or "B+", like her bloodtype. Isn't that cool!??! Thanks for taking the time to be a part of this. I appreciate it!

Mailing info:
"B+" Jessie
P.O. Box 538
Monrovia, CA 91017

Thanks, everyone!Shanna

Hi Shauna:

I will be sending a card from Vegas today. Great idea.

I hope you are feeling okay. If you go to the meeting on Wednesday, please fill me in on any news. Hope Etta is okay.

It is hot here and I'm loving the air conditioning!

Take care of yourself. I am thinking about you.

Love ya, JO

You rock, girlfriend!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me with my mission! I have 4 cards so far and am hoping for lots more! I have decided to either try and find an adorable keepsake box to put these in or I will paint up a wooden box and have all of Jessie's classmates sign it next week at the end of the year pizza party.

Heading to Disneyland to meet Lisa, Kirstie and Karyn tomorrow! It will be fun. I have been reminiscing for days about our rendevous last fall. That was SO much fun! I actually bought myself a pass today, so now our family will have to go! lol

Much love to you. I have yet to connect with you, but hope you are feeling okay. I really miss you.

xoxo, Twin

P.S. Thank you, Jo, for joining in! I don't know ya, but I like ya already! ;o)

i did this when my husband was in the hospital with his stem cell transplant. he was stuck in there for a month and it was the highlight of his day when the nurse brought his mail. so many cards and letters and funny cartoons - it was a truly positive experience for him!

i'll send something to Jessie today!
