A friend of mine shared an article with me that was in her local paper about a little girl named Hannah Garman. She has been diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor. Little Hannah is only 4 years old and the prognosis is not good.
The family is doing their best NOT to focus on the inevitable but to focus on Christmas instead. So what that means is cards. Lots of them. It would mean the world to Hannah to receive the cards. The family is stating it has already lifted her spirits.
Hannah has lost most of her motor skills and is confined to a bed. However, she has been able to open the cards and it has definitely put a smile on her face!
Tonight a convoy of 60 fire engines (the paper said 30 but it ended up being 60) and other rescue vehicles paraded over to her house and dropped off hundreds of cards for her. I was touched when I heard that part because that right there makes me proud to be a Firefighter's Wife!
I am going to be sending her a card tomorrow and encourage all of you to do so as well!

I know this sounds like all the other things you read about sick children wanting cards...but this one is real. I looked it up on snopes and sure enough,it is true.
