Thank you from a patient
I don't really know you and you don't really know me. In fact, I never heard of your blog until about an hour ago. I found it stamped on the back of a card that you must have created and then donated to the hospital (MD Anderson Cancer Center). The volunteer department here has been giving out some of the most beautiful one-of-a-kind cards to us patients and I kept wishing I could thank the people who make these cards and donate them. I was really excited to find your stamp on the back because now I can finally thank someone who is at the producing end of the cards.
I am 28 years old and have been fighting leukemia for 5 years now. I had a bone marrow transplant in June 2015 and I'm slowly getting better. Looking through the card choices and choosing one is one of the highlights of my day and gives me a lovely way to stay in touch with friends and family back home. (I'm from NY and have been here in Texas for 6 months now). Thank you so very much for your generosity of time, energy, creativity, thought and materials in making and donating these cards. They mean a lot to me, and I'm sure other patients as well.

Wow. How wonderfully touching!
I wonder if we could get a manufacturer to make up a 150-200 little stamps that say something about being made by a Splitcoaststampers member? Maybe they'd make it if a bunch of us pitched in and bought them in advance. That way, any cards we make for HYCCT or any of the other "charities" could see our connection to this site.
So wonderful. Dina, thanks for sharing her note with all of us. This is our mission and we have been successful in touching at least one patient, likely many patients. Just what I needed to hear as we start our holiday season.
Thank you Dina for this post. I am so hope that each and every one of these great families can take a card and know that so many of us wanted to do something to brighten their day. This is the highlight of this entire HYCCT for me.
