May 7th Birthday Cards for Lucas' Last Birthday
On the news, there was a story about Lucas, a 6 yr old boy from Chicago who has battled pediatric cancer for years. He was finally "clear" of cancer and got to go home last (2015) Christmas. Sadly, he was very recently diagnosed with another form of cancer that is incurable. His parents made the heart-wrenching decision to withhold more painful treatment as there is no cure. They don't want him to spend the rest of his life fighting another battle that he won't win. Lucas will be 6 on MAY 7TH and his family is asking for cards and letters for what will be his last birthday. Last Christmas he received 500 cards/letters and loved them all. His parents are reaching out for birthday cards/letters in hopes that the # he receives, will surpass 500. They want to make the rest of his life as comfortable and as special as they can. They want his next and last birthday to be the best ever. Following is a link with more info and it has links to his story within it:
Lucas Bear Story & Card/Letter Drive
Will you please help make his last birthday the best ever by sending a card and spreading the word to all of your card-making friends and any card clubs/groups you are affiliated with?
In case you want to send a card but you don't have time to look up and read his story or follow the links within it, here is the address to which cards can be sent:
40 E Chicago Ave, #162
Chicago, IL 60611
Again, his birthday is MAY 7TH so cards need to be mailed from anywhere/everywhere, pretty darn quick. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
