Bring Dawn Home

Hi everyone
I just wanted to let you all know about a card drive going on right now over at SCS.
My dear friend Pam has asked for help from Cindy, aka 'Mothermark', a caring and kind gal with such a giving heart, to spread the word about a very sad situation involving Pam's son and daughter's aunt Dawn who has just finished serving two years in Iraq. Before coming home she visited a friend in Africa. Days before Dawn was to come home to Bristol CT, she was in a terrible accident that has left her paralyzed from the neck down. She is in a hospital in Nairobi, and cannot be moved for at least two months. The cost of the hospital is insane amounts of money. She needs to come home!! Here is a link to the story, and what you can do to help. The SCS community is full of caring, and incredible people, I'm sure Dawn will be flooded with beautiful, uplifting cards to help keep her spirits up and help her to continue to fight to get strong enough to be able to come home.
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs and Smiles~
Denise
