Give some happiness this Christmas...Pass this on.

I received this via email from a dear friend. It is a legitimate charity, and very worthwhile. If still skeptical, check out's opinion on the matter....

This little girl's wish this holiday season is to receive as many cards as possible. In a time when materialism seems to prevail over any goodness, let's take the time to bring some cheer to someone who is appreciating everything Life has to give with numbered breaths. Here is a letter from her Aunt asking everyone to send a card, so SEND A CARD for Hannah!!

Hannah's last Christmas

This is the true story of my 5-yr old 2nd cousin, Hannah Garman, who was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor. She has been given 12 weeks to live and is currently in her 7th week. She was going to be the flower girl in our wedding in May, but was diagnosed a week after we asked her to be the flower girl. This is especially sad because her mother died 2 yrs ago from breast cancer.

Right now, she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bed and cannot really do anything, or play with the gifts she is getting from people, but she LOVES getting cards - she has gotten so many from people she does not know and just loves to have grandma read about the people who send them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just filled with cards.

When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see how many Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groups where children are making her cards. People are including pictures so she can see who it is that is sending her the card.

If you would like to help with her wish, you can send a card to her at:
Hannah Garma
704 Orchard Rd
Lititz, PA 17543

THANKS! Feel free to pass this along to your own prayer group, church, school, etc. Let's see if we can have the cards coming in big postal bags for her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

P.S. You can also send my email to anyone you forward this to, if they have
