A Special Request

Blogging friend Kelly Jackson, well known in the blogging community for her terrific online shop I Have a Notion, is taking care of her mom who has been recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which unfortunately has spread to other organs. Kelly is requesting cards sent to her mom to lift her spirits. You can read her post here.

Quilters are a vast and generous community and I know that we can flood her mom's mailbox overflowing with cards of fun and cheer. Please take a few minutes out of your busy day and post a pretty card to help bring some smiles to an ailing Mom. You can send it to:

Olivia Howlett
c/o Henry Ford Hospital
Room P623
2799 W. Grand Blvd
Detroit, MI 48202

Per Kelly's request, please don't send any "Get Well" cards but any other kind of card would be great. Share a cute story, a joke, or an uplifting moment in your life, anything to help lift her spirits. The sooner you can send one on its way, the better.

Help spread the word far and wide and share this on your own blog. Quilters help quilters in time of need and there is no more serious need than the illness Kelly's mom is dealing with now.  I know our deepest thoughts and prayers are with Kelly, her Mom and their entire family during this difficult time.
