OT: Sick child needs help

Hey everyone.

In Ottawa, there is a seven-year old boy who is very, very sick in CHEO (children's hospital of eastern ontario), his name is Shane. His parents called kiss fm this morning about trying to break the world record of greeting cards. The little guy is fighting a long, hard battle for his life.

We're trying to collect cards of any kind: Valentine's, greeting, Christmas, Birthday, homemade or store-bought, for Shane. His birthday is May, and it doesn't look so good.

If anyone wants to get involved in this, please send me a PM and I can give you my mailing address. I'm planning on doing a drop-off to kiss, and to CHEO with kiss, since I am getting a few from overseas.

They want to get some cards from not only all over Canada, but the world. That's why I'm asking Thrashers fans, because I heart you guys.

Please help this little guy out. It's so sad.

How about e-cards? To print and mail or to print there?

myfuncards.com
wish.org
bluemountain.com
123greetings.com
ecards.com
egreetings.com
hallmark.com

Or just google 'e-cards' for lots of e-card websites.

That's a good idea.

But I don't know if the little guy has e-mail or not.

My mail and computer are so f'cked up that I can't get involved... But I salute your effort on this

Just wanted to send my simpaties out like this, if you can, send this message to him:

Kid, if you're by any chance reading this - hang on, you can beat anything... I really hope you get well. Best wishes from Croatia.

Thank you very much, I'll make a card for him with your message on it. It is very much appreciated.

I just got off the phone with the Thrashers PR department.

There are just.. no words.

They're going to have Marian do something for him, they're going to try to see if they can arrange a call to Shane from him.


Just....wow.

there are a lot of sick kids like him ...i don't find it fair to be so generous to just one of them because he was announced on the radio or something....y not send cards like that to all the kids in the hospital ?

I understand this. But this little guy has not been home in 13 months. He's been in isolation for over a year.

I do a lot for CHEO here, I volunteer at the telethon, I run for cancer, but I've never seen a child quite like him.

My baby sister was in hospital for the first 3 years of her life, she had kidney problems. I have been around CHEO a lot, this kid really is special.

Maybe if this is sucessful, I can turn it into an annual thing and help out a new child every year. We'll see...
