Famous?!

Well not exactly but this will be as close as I get!  Ha, ha.

Let me start from the beginning.  I had all intentions to create cards to give to everyone at the cancer center but then was hit with chemo!  So I asked for help from my Utah Diva gals (my former SU group) and Splitcoaststampers (LOVE this site!) Well the support has been huge and I have received soo many beautiful thank you and birthday cards from friends and complete strangers!   THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!! 

I love doing this and most of the time they already know who they are going to send their card to which is fun to hear about!  I also love all the happy smiles :)

I also leave a thank you card on the table for the next chemo patient with a note that says, " Have a great day I know you can use this. From one chemo buddy to another!"  I know that we all go through a lot of thank you cards b/c everyone is doing something for us during our time of need.  I know I feel blessed by the support I have received!!

So last time I received chemo a lady delivered a bouquet of daffodils to me and in return I gave her a thank you card.  I remember her saying, "I was giving you a gift and you are now giving me one, how sweet!"

Well to my surprise that nice lady returned five minutes later with a camera crew, she is a  news reporter and wanted to do a story about my cards.  So here is my 1 minute of fame! Pretty cool, huh.

Courtney. I bought a bouquet of daffidils and I delivered them to a couple of cancer patients and then one that was dealing with some other health issues. They got to see them bloom. What an awesome sign of "hope". They were beautiful. You are an amazing lady. I remember my days at the KU Cancer Center. They are amazing people there. Are you staying at Hope Lodge? If so tell Rachel, Keyshan, and Mary Ann "hi" for me. Take care Courtney. Stay strong and positive. I have raised almost $5,000 so far for the ACS Hope Lodge of Kansas City. I will get my head shaved in May. Keep Smiling. You are beautiful.
