Hello everyone,
This is a child in my town. I know lots of us have huge hearts, and lots of cards to send. Please help out!

Colton Dean is a 10 year old boy from Buckhannon, WV. He has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, which is a form of bone cancer. He is a 5th grader at Union Elementary School.
Colton is a very strong, cheerful, and fun kid who is always wearing a smile. His smile could light the world!!
We are asking EVERYONE to please take a minute and send a card to Colton. It could be a card of prayers, well wishes, friendship, encouragement, or a funny card to make him laugh!
Please mail to:
COLTON DEAN
c/o UNION ELEMENTARY

BUCKHANNON, WV 26201

Let's keep Colton smiling!!!!!

Please send this to all of your friends, print it and take it to church, school, work, etc. Spread the word!!

I've just finished making a card for Colton and hope to have it in the mail today. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to send him some cheer and to hold him up in prayer.

Hi Lori!

Here is a copy of the PM I sent to Melody in response to your request:

Twisted Sister Challenge for May 13
Hi Melody!

This week was my turn to issue the challenge for the Twisted Sisters, and I thought you'd like to take a peek, and maybe play along too! We have a week to work on this, and the cards will be posted next Friday. I will get mine done and in the mail before then. Here is a link for you: See post #3492

Twisted Sisters

Lori,
This challenge begins tomorrow, and we have all kept Colton in our prayers, and also sent up a word regarding his parents too. You can search for TSC0513 to follow the cards uploaded for Colton.

Bless your heart for making this need known. It is so great to make cards for a purpose!

Take Care~
Pat
