I Feel the Love Project- August

Welcome to Funky Cards

I am excited to announce today that for the month of August, Kate McRae and her family will be the recipients of our handcrafted cards.   

Will- Brother, Aaron-Dad, Holly-Mom, Kate, Olivia, Sister

Monday June 29th, 2009 was supposed to be a day filled with summer fun. The kids and I were going to the water park to celebrate summer. However, I noticed that a slight tremor in her right hand that had developed over the past few days had notably worsened. We decided to take her to her Pediatrician, just for safe measure. A CT of Kate's head was ordered. We proceeded to Phoenix Childrens Hospital for a stat CT of her head.

At 5:30 I, Holly, Kate's mom, was taken into a room alone and told Kate had a massive tumor on the left temporal lobe of her brain. The world seemed to stopped for us that day. I called her dad and through sobs told him to come to the hospital quickly. Our long journey had begun. Kate was directly admitted to the PICU. One minute thoughts of the water park the next our child is critically ill in the intensive care unit awaiting emergent brain surgery within a matter of days.  We would have never chosen to be a part of this journey with childhood cancer, but it was chosen for us, and our sweet Kate. 

Here is how you can help.   Submit one card by August 31st to:

  1. Madison just checking. The due date says July 31st. Is it supposed to be August 31st? I am working on cards for you now and want to make sure I am making them for the right family.

  2. I'm mailing mine off tomorrow (just in the nick of time). :)
