All for Aidan

     Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper.  His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So.... 

   I need your help. Let's get our crafting supplies out and send this lil guy some LOVE!!!  Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes and make something special for him that will bring LOTS of smiles and he can look at over and over. 

   Please mail your cards to:     AIDAN

Tanya I think we should all post this on our blogs as "ALL for Aidan". I love what Zeni wrote up for and I have left her a comment asking her permission to copy what she wrote on her blog and post it on mine and to pass it on facebook. I am in a few scrapping groups on facebook and I would love to post it there. Lets all come together and put lots of BIG smiles on Aidan's and his parents faces.

I saw this on Norma's blog (Pink Bling Crafter) and just posted it on mine. My prayers are going up for this family. I wanted to know Aidan's mom & dad's names but I see she just posted a comment. So she is Jessica, what about dad's name? I'd like to send Aidan & his parents both a card. Thank you.

Hi Tanya, thanks for the link to your blog. My thoughts and prayers will be with Aidan and his family. What a little trooper he must be! As Grammy to little Miss Mia, who has Cystic Fibrosis, I know how important the prayers and support can be.

I know this family because I worked with little Aidans mother. I have been praying for them every day!!! You should be very proud of yourself for doing something like this for him. I am sure he will love getting mail from everywhere. You are a very special person and have a big heart. Thank you for doing this for him. Still praying everyday for them!!!!

I posted the info on my blog as well. My family is sending prayers and love to Aidan and his family as his story is also the story of my stepdaughter. She was 3 when she was diagnosed with leukemia, but is 15 now and has been in remission for over 10 years!! I will be making my card this weekend to send out!
