Christmas Cards

This year, I have decided to purchase some very special cards for Christmas; most of you know how much I love to make cards, but these are some that outshine any that I could ever make:

This year’s Cure Starts Now holiday cards were designed by three wonderful kids: Andrew Smith from Michigan, Ellie Willaert from Minnesota, and Caleb Spady from Oklahoma. All three kids are battling brain cancer and have put their heart and soul into designing truly unique cards to represent The Cure Starts Now. Proceeds go towards funding brain cancer research at hospitals like St Jude’s Research Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The holiday card pack contains 18 cards including a sampling of each of the 6 custom designed cards. The inside reads, “May the spirit of the holidays bring you hope and happiness.” Each card tells a little bit about the child who drew the picture and about the need to fund pediatric brain cancer research. Shipping will begin on November 12th and is $2.00 per pack.

Here is also a link to Ellie's Caring Bridge page to see the journey that she has been through.
