I have an update for you! Back in a post back on July 13th, we introduced you to Maddy, her sister Melanie, and their parents Tim and Marizel! Tim is a close friend to Jason, Heidi's husband, and gave him the opportunity to work at a job that would support the beginning phases of Simon Says Stamp!
Maddy, a beautiful 13 year old girl, is currently fighting Acute Myeloid Leukemia and has been under going chemotherapy for 6 months. Melanie and Maddy just recently went through a stem cell transplant, and here is a brief excerpt explaining the day from their mom Marizel:
As we all hope and pray that the transplant ends up being the cure, we also want to thank everyone for the cards they sent! The whole family enjoyed seeing all the different countries the cards came from!
Our dear friend Jana Millen is now doing her own card drive for Maddy and the family, and has AMAZING giveaways you could win if you participate! From dies, to stamps, to tools- it's definitely worth checking out! The cards need to be to Jana by September 30th, (she extended the deadline from September 14th) and she's drawing the winners soon thereafter. For more information on the drawing, check out Jana's post (and while you're there, check out her blog! She came to teach at Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and I was blown away at her skill!), or sign up to see Maddy's page and follow the progress here.
Thanks for all your support you've shown, and continue to show! We at Simon can only hope the best for this family!
