Cooking with Cricut #81

Today's challenge is near and dear to my heart-Girl/Teen themed thinking of you items!  Cooking with Cricut  is hosting this wonderful challenge and dedicating it to two very special girls.  We are asking that if anyone would like to, they can donate their cards that are being made for this challenge to these girls. It is not mandatory that you make something and send it, but it would be wonderful if you could. It is totally okay to make two projects if you would for each girl. PLEASE consider doing this to brighten to sweet girl's days.

The first girl is Patty, she is a friend's daughter who is currently battling cancer.  She is only 13 years old. Isn't she lovely?

From Patty's Caring Bridge:  A little about Patty: A little over a year ago, Patty had emergency surgery to remove a tumor from her spinal cord that was paralyzing her. She was never supposed to be able to walk again.  

Since then, she has had six rounds of chemotherapy, two more surgeries, three stem cell collections, one round of strong-dose chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, proton radiation therapy, and two rounds of low-dose chemotherapy.

She still has cancer, with one solid tumor in her spinal cord. She is on the waiting list for experimental MIBG radiation therapy. In the meantime, she has low-dose chemotherapy every two weeks out of three. She feels sick and very tired most of the time. Her back and head hurt.

She is not only walking, she can run a little and jump a little. She enjoys playing computer games, doing stuff on the internet, spending time with her friends, going to the mall and library, and playing Sims. She has a home-based teacher and is keeping up with her classmates.

I was thinking of Patty when I created this card.
