    It IS fabulous, Michelle! Now, I have to get the word out to more card artists.
    Project Give Thanks is a huge success! Rocky Mountain Cancer Survivors simply love it and they Give Thanks!

    Every Monday I visit the infusion room and there are usually only 3 or 4 cards left. It takes me forever to refill the box because I have to look at each card. The chemo patients give so many compliments on the beautiful cards. They often say they can’t believe that people from all over the country care so much that they would make these beautiful cards for them. Americans are good, loving, supportive, and empathetic people – Stamp Artists are all of that on steroids!!! Hundreds of beautiful, creative, expensive cards are proof of that!

    PGT now includes the support groups for newly diagnosed and young cancer survivors and the lymphedema support group. That means that some of these cards will be used to inform family and friend of a new diagnosis. If texture, color, ribbons and bows, tearing, stamping and gluing can make that message go a little easier for both the sender and the recipient, so be it! We’ll all Give Thanks.

    I wish I could show you, and all of the ladies that have donated cards, the happy face of a chemo patient while she or he is looking at these cards! They momentarily forget about the chemicals dripping into their veins, the loud beeping machines and how bad they’ll soon feel. Instead they are busy marveling at the beauty and creativity of the cards and the people who made them. They think about each of the people they have to thank. They smile, laugh and give thanks for the generosity of strangers! It is so powerful.

    Thank you for helping me contact your stamp-art community. They are wonderful people and their support of cancer patients just goes to prove it!

    Love you, Sonja
