BCRibbon positive, uplifting cards needed please

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping to collect some positive, uplifting cards for my friend who can really use a boost right now.
My friend is a 46 year old mom of two teens who was diagnosed this time last year with triple negative breast cancer. This is a rarely occurring cancer, and initially they told her not to bother with treatment as they're not too sure how to treat it. She is such a positive person that she said, no, I will beat this if you will give me some sort of treatment. She endured rounds of chemo, radiation and other drugs over the past year and she has been such a trooper throughout with her amazing positive spirit. I truly believe she made it this far because of her great attitude, lots of positive thought, and prayers going her way. She finished her treatments in September and that was supposed to be that.
So, why does she need a boost now? She found out two weeks ago that she has a brain tumour, then the day of surgery to remove it, they got the results back of her body scan. The surgery was cancelled as she also has ovarian tumours, and bone mets to her hip and lower back. I know for her that this was not just a physical blow, but a huge blow to her spirit. It's hard to be so strong for so long only to be kicked when you're on the way back up. Right now the community is raising money for her to go to Yale as they have a study treatment going on that may be her only shot. We are in Canada and there is nothing here to treat triple negative breast cancer as I mentioned.
I wanted to do something nice for her to show her that people care and that she can take a break from being strong and let others be positive for her and to help lift her up again.
Please consider sending a card to her care of me and I will deliver them to her. Any card that is positive, uplifting, spiritual, or nice in any way would help to boost her spirits. Please pm me for my address. Thank you.

Hi everyone! I've had four people decide to make a card for my friend! Thanks so much ladies
Here's hoping to come up with a few more....it is so nice to see the smile the cards bring to her face, and the bright spot they bring to her day. She keeps them all within sight as she said they help to buoy her spirits.

Thank you everyone. I didn't get a chance to get on here until today. Andrea passed away very suddenly a few days ago. The cards I have to date, I'm going to give to her 17 year old daughter so she will know just how much her mom was loved and that there is good in this world. Thank you again.

I'm so sorry to hear this and offer my sincere sympathy. I pray that the Lord will strengthen and comfort all of you who loved this brave lady.
