A Spring "Thanks" and a request!!

Hey everyone! I got to try some of the this super cute paper from GCDStudios. Michaels has a few open stock choices and they also have several different stacks from them. There is a nice texture to the paper, and the shimmer...ooo some of the papers have such a lovely shimmer to them! will definitely get more of this stuff! The letter stickers are also from GCDStudios!

and now for the request! As some of you may know, I have a son with recurrent ependymoma, which is a brain tumor that is located in the posterior fossa part of the brain.

I got this letter from Chris Brower, founder of Mira's Movement via a Brain Tumor Warrior email group that I belong to....If you have a moment, could you check it out!

"I’m writing today to ask if you will join an effort to pass landmark federal legislation aimed at discovering the causes of childhood brain tumors, with the ultimate goal of preventing and curing this devastating disease. We need your help convincing Congress that the National Childhood Brain Tumor Prevention Network Act of 2009 should be a priority.

This first-of-its-kind legislation would provide $25 million a year for five years for research into the epidemiology (cause) of brain tumors in children. The act calls for the creation of a Pediatric Brain Tumor Prevention Network to provide grants and coordinate research to determine risk factors and causes of childhood brain tumors.

Mira's Movement, which I co-founded with my wife, is part of a nationwide effort to pass the National Childhood Brain Tumor Prevention Network Act. Please visit our website for information on contacting your members of Congress: www.mirasmovement.org/CBTPNA.html. It will take just a few minutes to contact your Senators and Representatives and ask them to co-sponsor this important bill—and it will make a huge difference!"
