A Christmas wish for a young boy.

A woman from my church recently posted
on Facebook about her nephew who will soon
have his last Christmas.
Her nephew was diagnosed with DIPG (diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) 
or Pediatric Brainstem Cancer in December of 2009. 
He's currently on Hospice and will be spending his last Christmas at home with his family.
He's only 10 years old.
{can see more about him at www.oliverpalmer.blogspot.com)

His Aunt says, 
"About 6 months ago while spending a lot of time at the hospital, the local area in Waterloo Iowa had a "get well card" campaign. He received literally bags and bags of cards from well wishes. This needless to say made his day. He loved reading from so many cards of complete strangers that had taken an interest in his life. What we want to do for him this, his last Christmas, is see to it that he again receive bags and bags of Christmas cards, only now from all over the country. "

So, please,
if you have some time,
please send Ollie a card.

It can be short or long.
Handmade or bought.

What matters is that he gets a card from you!
A complete stranger!
It would make his day.

Mail to:
Oliver Palmer
417 Oaklawn Ave.
Waterloo, IA  50701

We'll be making a card for him tomorrow night.
Maybe a few snowflakes too (cause right now Ava's on a homemade snowflake kick).
And please repost this on your facebook page or blog!
The more cards the better!

Happy Monday!  And hope your weekend was great!
