The C Word…..
Cancer….. a six letter word. Six tiny letters that have such a big impact on lives. Cancer doesn’t judge or discriminate, doesn’t care if you are white or black, rich or poor. It doesn’t care if you are Baptist, Methodist, Catholic or Muslim. Cancer is not choosy, it strikes young, old and any age in between. Cancer just flat out doesn’t care.
It really makes my heart ache when it strikes children. Toddlers, babies who have yet to live their lives. Who are so resilient that we adults can learn from their bravery in dealing with this disease. Last week I received an email from Korin announcing that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is reaching out to a little girl with cancer.
Kate Thornton diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in August of 2008 at the age of 3. You can read more about Kate here at Kisses for Kate and be sure to watch the slideshow to learn more about Kate and her journey. She is a princess at heart!
Korin designed this sweet digital stamp in Kate's honor.
100% of the proceeds of this stamp will go to the Thornton family.
Sadly, Kate’s journey ended on Saturday. Her pain and suffering are over.
Please pray for the Thornton family as they mourn the passing of their precious little girl.
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will still be collecting funds for her family through the sale of the Princess Kate digital stamp. Please consider using it so others might know of brave little Princess Kate and help the family in this way.
It’s the least I can do….. and so can you. Help spread the word. Regardless if you are a crafter or not, consider getting this adorable digital stamp for your kids or grandkids. What little girl wouldn’t love to color her?
Even after jumping out of a tree, company visiting us over the weekend, I made time this morning before work to quickly create this precious princess card:
Korin, she is precious. Kate is smiling
Please consider sending your condolences to Kate's family….
