Important Post....PLEASE READ!!

**This will stay at the top of my blog for the month of February**
CANDY NOW CLOSED!

Thanks for stopping by my blog to read this important post. I am asking for some help to make a wonderful lady smile as she is going through a difficult time right now. That special lady is my hubby's Aunt Jeanne! She just turned 50 in November and right before Christmas she was diagnosed with breast cancer. A couple of days ago she underwent a mastectomy (complete removal of breast). Everything has been going well and she is in good spirits and trying to stay so positive. As soon as she heals she will undergo chemotherapy and we won't know if she also has to do radiation or not until her results come back from the lymph nodes they took out. Jeanne is a remarkably sweet lady....she would do anything for anyone and so would her husband! Two of the nicest people I have ever met and I'm so glad I am a part of their family.
Jeanne absolutely LOVES cards....and she also really enjoys getting postcards from different places. She hasn't traveled very much and always enjoys getting postcards from all of our travels. I thought it would be great if she could get handmade cards, items or postcards from all over the world to help lift her spirits and make her smile! That is where you all come in! :) This is going to be a surprise for her and I will hand deliver everything. I would also like to offer a bit of candy to those that participate in sending something AND for spreading the word! If there is anyone that wishes to donate something to my candy pile that would be wonderful!!! I would like to have everything by the end of February so if you live out of the USA please adjust to allow for posting time! Thank you so much in advance for those that choose to participate!!

Here are the details:
1. Please make a card, handmade item (she loves anything), or send a postcard of your local area. You can mail everything to me. Please e-mail me for my address...it is located in my profile. If you can't find it just leave me a message on my blog saying you would like my address.
2. Make sure you put your e-mail or blog address in the envelope so I can put you in the candy draw!
3. Please spread the word and link to this post (you can use the candy picture)! Leave me a comment with a link to your blog post that you have spread the word and I will enter you in the candy draw.
If you send something AND spread the word that gives you two chances!!
4. Remember I would like to have everything by the end of February and will draw a name the first week of March. I will ship anywhere!
5. If you do NOT want to be in the candy draw and still would like to participate please let me know that too!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!!

EDITED 2-21-11 TO SAY: If you would like to participate in the candy and your afraid your card will not get here in time don't worry....just let me know your sending something and I will go ahead and include you. But to make sure things are fair if you are the winner I will hold the candy until I receive your card. So far I have about 35 people that have said they would send something....my goal is 50 so fingers crossed as I am almost to my goal!! :) I also wanted to let you know that Jeanne is doing well and that her test results came back and her lymph nodes were clear!! That is a blessing!! I have not talked to her about when she will start chemo...I will update when I know more!

Please count me in on the "card shower" and I'll contribute some treats to your blog candy giveaway. I'll post the info on my blog tomorrow and I'll send a card and treats in the mail to you just as soon as I can dig out of the snow.

Hugs,

Hello Stacie, I found your blog through Cor and have added both candy to my blog to help spread the word for your friend. I'm not interested in winning the candy, but I hope to help spread the word for such a wonderful cause! It's so lovely what you're doing for her and she must indeed be a special lady and so sorry to hear she's going through a rough time. I will definitely try to get a card made for her too! And I will see what I can find to add to the candy pot! Best of luck to you and your family! :)

Hey Kiddo. . .I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's Aunt. Cancer is such an awful disease. I'm so sorry she is going through it. I don't need to be entered into the drawing, but I do want to send her a card. Please send me your address. My best to her and to you two. Curt

Olga said...

okay, I'll send you some Stampin Up ribbon, it's called Jersey ??? and a pack of K&Company Chipboard Frames. Also I will send her a card, bless her heart, this could happen to any of us.

Sheree said...

Count me in on making a card and sending it off as soon as possible. Your Aunt is in for the fight of her life but the prognosis is so much better now than it was even a year ago. My mom's mastectomy got everything and she didn't need treatment of any kind. Hope I have the same luck as I'm the only female in the family who it hasn't hit yet... knock on wood. I sent you an e-mail asking for your addy.
My best to all of you at this trying time.

Sheree said...

Just wanted you to know I have the link on my blog now ... Hope you get lots of traffic as I get around 25 per day now. The card will be popped in the mail tomorrow morning!

Gina said...
