View Full Version : Birthday cards for terminal girl

08-07-2014, 12:50 PM
A local 9 year old girl is excited about reaching her 10th birthday on 9-9-14. She has a terminal neurological disease which usually kills before age 10. All she is asking for are birthday cards from around the world. I know this group of big hearted artists could make her birthday very special. If you would like to send a card to her (even a purchased card) please PM me for the address. I truly appreciate all my friends here.:wubclub::wubclub::wubclub:

Hello, I would love to send a card. Please send the address. Seascape131.....Judy from OH

08-31-2014, 07:32 PM
Thanks!! I'm just thrilled with all the participation. Ali has gotten over 1000 cards and letters so far. Our local newspaper did a frontpage article on her today. Gave me chills. Look at this beautiful 9 going on 10 face.148680

08-31-2014, 07:35 PM
Oh how darling, I'm so happy for her. What exactly does she have??

08-31-2014, 07:50 PM
Ali has a rare neurological disease called neuroaxonal dsytrophy. It's officially called PLA2G6 :Assoicated Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation. Iron is building on the base of her brain. She was diagnosed in 2012. Her symptoms resemble cerebral palsy and autism. Little else is known due to the rarity of the disease.

Thanks for asking, v.r.

08-31-2014, 08:09 PM
Thanks for describing it, I still can't get over how many cards she's received, that's amazing! :-)

09-02-2014, 08:27 AM
Please can I have her address too, I missed this earlier but woudl love to send a little gift if my card is going to be too late. :)

09-02-2014, 12:02 PM
Thanks, Hally and Gerry. :yes: It's not too late. I've PM'd you both with the addy. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate all of you helping out. This has been amazing.:swoon::wub:

09-02-2014, 12:17 PM
Just saw this JSilver. If you could send me the addy too, I'll pop something in the mail quickly.

09-02-2014, 12:43 PM
I would think,.even if the cards are a bit late, it would be just fine! This is something to celebrate, so why stop after her birthday? :-)

09-02-2014, 08:27 PM
You are so right, Vampiress_rose. I think she will be celebrating every day for quite a while.
