This week our destination is Chardon, Ohio. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Jennifer? Jennifer (nillysilly_ol'bear) is a fellow SCSer who is battling a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer. Jennifer is presently at a facility where they are aggressively attacking her cancer with radiation 7 days a week until November.

Despite all that she is going through, Jennifer is a challenge hostess for HYCCT bringing cards of support and encouragement to others battling this disease. Just to give you a sense of Jennifer's compassion for others, read the comments she posted in one of the HYCCT challenge hostess threads:

In her own words;

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to this event this year! In February, I received my own diagnosis. I'm still going through treatments, and will be through the end of the year and perhaps longer. I have a rare and agressive form of breast cancer, so this challenge, which was always important to me (not to mention tons of fun!), has taken on even greater importance.

Almost all of my extra cards I have been placing in a box I've made for the center where I take my chemo treatments. you can't even begin to know the joy the other patients experience as they go through the box to take whatever cards they are needing. several other people have also sent cards for this box. every bit of beauty helps to brighten a day in some form or fashion. when going through this journey, you learn to look for and appreciate every act of kindness and every glimpse of beauty you see.

If you have a chance to hop on over to her blog you will find out why our teapot has shoes and get a sense of the amazing person that Jennifer is.

Here is the address:

Jennifer L Scull
319 South St
Chardon, OH 44024-1322

Thank you from Rosalia and me!
