I Feel The Love Project #2

Hello everyone! I know it’s been awhile since my last update! I’ve been really busy at work and hadn’t had a chance!

It is long overdue but this is my card for July’s I Feel The Love Project.

The recipient of this month is Marley Moore. Here’s a little story about her.

On Friday, August 7, 2009, Marley was taken to the hospital due to concerns from her family as well as their family physician. A CT scan found a tumor (pilocytic astrocytoma), about the size of a lemon, located on her brain. Marley was immediately rushed to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City where the doctors went to work...they began to drain fluid from her brain to release the pressure that had been causing her immense pain for weeks prior.

The tumor was located around/near the optic nerve, the brain stem, and the pituatary gland. Because it was near several very sensitive areas of the brain, the doctor's scheduled a surgery to remove as much of the tumor as they possibly could. That surgery took place on Monday, August 10, 2009. The surgeon was able to remove a larger portion than he had originally thought, but that evening, as a result of trauma to the brain from surgery, Marley suffered a stroke, leaving her right side paralyzed. You can follow the rest of her story through our journal updates. Click HERE.

I wanted to make a card that a 3 year old would enjoy. I thought this gold fish(kinda like the ones you eat!) would be super cute.
