Lots of Love for Lauryn Card Drive Blog Hop






Isn't this little girl just precious? Let me introduce you....
Lauryn was diagnosed with Leukemia on March 27, 2014. She is currently hospitalized in the DC area undergoing chemotherapy to fight this terrible disease.  Lauryn is Linda Payne's granddaughter...many of you in the stamping community probably already know sweet Linda!

As news of Lauryn's illness spread via social media, many of you have asked if there is anything you can do to help, so we have come up with a plan. We decided to have a Card Drive and would like to invite YOU to help by sending "happy mail" to Lauryn and her family.

Please create cards to share your love and encouragement for Lauryn and her family. Lauryn's parents are Josh and Elizabeth and she has two older siblings: Lily and Logan. We thank the Lord for this dear family and need to pray for them as they are seeking to glorify the Lord throughout this trial. 

Cards can be mailed to:

Children's National
Hematology/Oncology RM 437
Lauryn Newsome
111 Michigan Ave NW
Washington DC 20010

You can find updates on Lauryn via a Facebook page that has been set up by some family. It is Fight on Little Lauryn. They have shared how encouraging it is receive a simple "like" on a Facebook status or words of love and encouragement that is posted.
Here is the fabulous group of bloggers who have joined us in promoting this Card Drive. We would love for you to hop with us as numerous bloggers have blog candy and all you need to do is leave a comment...

Dear Rhonda -- My special thank to your for being part of this wonderful blog hop. I was so very sorry to hear that you did not receive the informaiton that was sent out to all the participants last week. Clearly, we must have had an incorrect email address or possibly the emails went to your Spam Box. I was not the one who sent them, but as one who did receive mine, and was part of the group, I can't begin to explain what happened, and we are ALL very sorry for that error.

I am so grateful that you now have the details and also thank you VERY much for your time and for being part of the HOP!

Big Hugs and again, my apologies for the email confusion.

Sincerely,
Lisa

Rhonda,

I am so thankful to you for sharing this on your blog today, let me also apologize to you for not receiving the email with the post information last week. I went to check and it shows your address listed, so with my meager computer skills I am not sure why you didn't get the email Jennie sent....it was not deliberate.
I know Lauryn's family appreciates your help and input as do we.
hugs, May God Bless.
