Good news – Cards for Collin

Time for some good news, fellow bloggers.

This little boy, who had little chance of surviving cancer, has now been in remission for almost a year because of new treatments. His single father is asking people send Collin cards on the anniversary of his transplant that saved his life – Dec. 21 – congratulating him and wishing him a merry Christmas. This will be the first holiday seasons the 7-year-old hasn’t been in the hospital for, I am definitely sending him a card.

Here’s a link to the news story –

    Hi. This is Mark Manheim, Collin’s dad. I just wanted to thank you not only for your card, but for spreading the word. He had his 1 yr check up yesterday and it was all good. He even got to come off his anti-rejection meds. I will be sending you some pics of his reaction to getting all his cards. Thanks again–and I hope you enjoy your holidays as much as you helped my son enjoy his………………………………Mark Manheim
