Cards for Cancer
The first annual Cards for Cancer will take place on April 10, 2010 and Handmade Louisiana is among the groups participating in the event. What is Cards for Cancer? Cards for Cancer is a worldwide event focusing on letting people with cancer know others are out there thinking of them. Having cancer can often be lonely. Sometimes something as simple as receiving a card provides an uplifting of ones spirit. Cards for Cancer sponsored by Spirit Jump and Bloggers Unite.
Groups participating in Cards for Cancer have the opportunity to honor someone who has been touched by cancer. Handmade Louisiana had chosen this year to honor the memory of Jonathan DiLeo. Jonathan was an amazing person and a friend to everyone he met. He was the best friend of one of our member's daughter and he is greatly missed every day.
Each group chooses a cancer center to deliver the cards to on or before April 10th. We will deliver our cards to the Mary Perkins Cancer Center in Covington, LA. In addition to the cards, some of our members have offered to donate items as small gifts for the patients who received treatment at the center. We hope that these offerings of comfort and hope help cheer and lift up the recipients' spirits.
