Cards For Kayla

Friday, January 29, 2010

I recently read a post over at Tic Tac Dough about a little girl named Kayla. Her family has been pushed to the limits with illness. A couple of years ago, just days before Christmas they got the news that daddy was ill with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Then two days later, they find out their little girl, who was all of 4 years old, was also sick, with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This was reality for the Gronley's. For the past two years, they have battled cancer in not one loved one, but two. They have a blog if you would like to follow-- Adventures in Mommyland.

Many fellow bloggers have made a decision to try and make a positive impact in Kayla's life. Since much of her current life is spent in hospitals and not in school or making friends - Kayla is very lonely. We asked Sandra what we could do to help Kayla. Sandra said that Kayla loves getting mail, that she loves getting a card in the mail.....


Cards For Kayla
Maybe you have a child that could draw Kayla a picture, or give her some stickers. Maybe you know of a class that could send Valentines Day Cards to her-- Just something little to brighten Kayla's day, to keep her occupied while she is in the hospital.

If you need some ideas on what your kids can draw, Kayla loves: the movie Hocus Pocus, the colors pink and purple, Animal Planet, any animals {cats especially} and Disney Princesses

Send Cards for Kayla to:

Kayla Gronley
P.O. Box 5634
Blue Jay, Ca 92317

Wow I can't imagine going through that. I'll have my son make a card. It will be a great project to teach him about caring for others. I'm stopping by from Friday Follow. Thanks for the follow!
