Heart Thank you letter from a "Cancer Mom"

I received the following today:

Hello! I am not sure where to direct this, so I am simply emailing it in hopes that you can post it in the appropriate thread. Our youngest son, who is 13, was diagnosed in September 2013 with an aggressive form of cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma. While at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston near Christmas for our son's surgery (to remove cancerous tumor and bone), I stopped in at the library. Much to my surprise, there was a full basket of BEAUTIFUL, handmade cards at the checkout desk, donated by Splitcoast Stampers! I asked, and I was told that they have a large supply and that all these gorgeous cards were donated regularly and were available for anyone to have. I have missed making cards SO much since my son's treatment began, and I cannot tell you what a joy it was to be able to choose a couple of cards to take with me. I've had to purchase cards to send, and it's just not the same... I found a perfect one in the Splitcoast Stampers basket to send to another "Canc
er Mom" whose daughter was having surgery the following week. Thank you SO much for this wonderful gift and for providing such a blessing to those of us who find ourselves in similar situations. My son has 6 more months of chemotherapy to go at our small local hospital (Covenant Children's Hospital in Lubbock, TX), and he is doing well. Thank you for brightening my day and providing a touch of warmth and kindness in a very large and sterile setting.
I'm Lydia.
