I Feel the Love Project- February 2014

Cards for the kids...
Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center

For those of you who have been following the I Feel the Love Project for awhile, we are excited to announce that this month's I Feel the Love Project was chosen by Ms. Ashley Nelinger.

Ashley is the daughter of Reggie Nelinger, our May 2013 card recipient. Fifteen years ago, Ashley was diagnosed with Wilms', a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children. She beat the odds that were stacked against her despite losing one of her kidneys.  In January, 2013, Ashley was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer completely unrelated to the cancer she had as child. It is called rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer of the connective tissues, which in Ashley’s case is attached to her sinus passage. Not only is this cancer a bit of a medical baffle due to its rare state, but Ashley only has one kidney and that makes chemo and other forms of treatment more challenging to treat than normal. 

Ashley has a team of Angels known as "Angels for Ashley Nelinger" who continually pray for Ashley and spread the word about her story.  On the FaceBook page that they created, we first learned that Ashley, despite her own medical issues, wanted to be a part of helping others.  We contacted Ashley and asked if she would like to nominate someone to receive our cards so that she could be a part of spreading joy and love to others.  Ashley agreed and selected the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, where she has herself received treatment.

Please join us this month as we create handcrafted greetings cards to send to the Pediatric Floor of Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center in Ashley's honor. If you would like to be a part of this month's project:
