    Default You did it before. Want to do it again?

    Two years ago my brother Tommy was dying from brain cancer. Many (oh, so many) of you sent him encouraging cards. It meant so much to him and our whole family. I have them all and still they encourage me to this day!

    This year I am losing my brother Andrew to colon cancer. He only has a few weeks to live. He is in great pain and is now in bed almost full-time. He would love some cards to cheer him up!

    If any of you would like to send him a card, please PM me for his name and address. It would have to be quick, though. Like I said, we will be saying goodbye to him very soon.

    (Sorry I haven't been around much! It is life, getting in the way of things I used to love to do.)

    Please write me if you'd like to brighten Andrew's last precious days. Thank you and bump this up if the answer is yes!

    Well of course I will help. I have way to many family members and friends who have fought the same battle. Some won the battle but others sadly didn't. is there anything we can do to brighten your days a little?

    This would do wonders for me if some of my quilting buddies would send my brother an uplifting card! I'll read them when I visit him.
