View Full Version : So heartbreaking. Can you help?

May 3rd, 2013, 07:17 PM
One of the blogs I read, House of Hepworths, posted this link. I am just heartbroken and speechless. I know we have so many wonderful, thoughtful people here on the forum so I thought I would share to see if we can help Jedi Max see the world :)


All of the details are in the link, but to summarize: Max will be 9 on July 1st, but he is fighting a form of aggressive brain cancer called Glioblastoma Multiforme. His dream is to travel to Paris, but his doctors will not allow him to travel. So instead he would love to see postcards from, not just Paris, but the WHOLE world! Since we have members from all over, it would be amazing if this little guy got to see our little parts of the world as well :) The address is in the link (along with the whole story and a few other links as well). I don't know this little guy personally, but the story touched me so much that I thought "why just send a card from Newfoundland, why not try to get him cards from as many places as I can?" :) No child should ever have to go through this, it just completely breaks my heart...

I'm in. I did a postcard sending thing before. I need to get some new ones with pictures instead of vintage poster types (which I have). I know exactly what to get. He will get a good hit from Hawaii :)

Oh Dee....so heartbreaking. Let's hope he gets cards from everywhere in the world. I know he will be getting one from Normal, IL. Lisa

Dee, I've done several of these for sick children. It's heart breaking what they go through and a postcard from folks all over really does make them feel special.

We'll be sending one from Dallas, Georgia - Maybe not as exciting as our Three Dolphins or Super Surfer ones from Oahu. lol But none the less we're in! :D

No postcards of NJ right now but will go through my pillowcase stash and pick one out for Max and another for his sister Katie. Pillowcoses are for kids with cancer or other life threatening illnesses and unfortunately Max has one.

I thank God everyday that we didn't have to go through what Max's parents are going through.

I couldn't stop thinking of the little fella and decided to share his story on facebook also. At least 4 of my facebook friends will be sending a postcard also! I invited about 100. Let's see how many of them respond :) They are from all over the world!
