Hello friends. You may recall back in January Danielle Walls started a card drive for a sweet little boy, Grayson. He had been diagnosed with brain cancer and she had hoped to bring him some smiles with your cards. The drive was a success! Grayson and his brother, Aydan, LOVED your cards! They received over 200! His mom, Jackie, wrote a little about the joy it brought them in her own blog post HERE.
Since then Grayson has undergone chemotherapy and had relative success in that his very aggressive tumor has not grown, but it also has not shrunk. This is hopeful news though because the chemo was at least making the tumor “behave”.
This weekend Grayson was involved in an accident at home which has left his foot severely injured. They are unsure if it will need to be amputated or not, and the entire situation is further complicated because of his cancer. His chemo has to be put on hold until they can decide what to do about his foot. Until then he is staying in the hospital. You can read it in Jackie’s words HERE.
I have no words. The heartache I feel for this family! As a mom, I could not imagine watching either of my children suffer in such a way…. It was very hard to read about this.
Danielle is restarting the card drive for Grayson. As before you can send cards to Grayson, his big brother Aydan, and/or the entire family. Please NO “Get Well” cards, just funny, happy, cute encouraging cards to bring a smile to their faces.
Mail cards to:
Grayson Savery (and/or Aydan Savery, and/or The Savery Family)
