Cards for Elyssa

Today, I want to tell you about a sweet girl who is fighting the battle of her life.  She is in heart failure and her heart is too damaged for her to be placed on the heart transplant list. Unless a miracle happens, and we know it can, she is taking steps each day that lead her closer to being with our Lord. She is home from the hospital and being loving taken care of by her family and friends.


I came in contact with this family several years ago while I was on a girls trip at the beach with my Mother and sister. We met her Mother, Edie, at a glass blowing class. We talked, we exchanged emails and facebooks and became internet friends. At that time, we both were writing caring bridge entries. Me, for Mother, and she had one going for her daughter, Elyssa, that I started following.


Elyssa had received a heart transplant as a young child, and over these last few years, has been in and out of the hospital with different illnesses. Her sister gave her a bone marrow transplant last year and life looked good. She developed shingles this past summer and the infections and damage started.

I want to ask you all to take a minute of your time and jot her address down. I would love to flood her mailbox with cards of cheer and encouragement... If you can`t send a card, go to her page and send a message. I know how important it is to have people who care and understand to be with you when going through trials. I would love for this 'CARDS FOR ELYSSA" to spread and let people from all over know about it and send cards to her.
