Help Make Hannah's Christmas Wish Come True.

I posted this on the main SGP site, but forgot to post it on my blog. Please help make Hannah's wish come true.

Update: One of Hannah's family or friends also started a Facebook Group where you can leave well wishes for her as well.

Hannah's Facebook Group

Many of you may remember my dear friend, Chris Garman, who lost her battle with breast cancer 2 years ago. When she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she was pregnant with her third child. Her doctors didn't thinkChris would live through her pregnancy without treatment, so they took a chance & gave her chemo while shewas pregnant. Chris survived her pregnancy & had a beautiful, healthy little girl named Hannah Faith.

Chris died when Hannah was three.Hannah is now five, and this breaks my heart all over again, but In October, Hannah has been diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor.She was given about 12 weeks to live. She was going to be the flower girl in a wedding in May, but was diagnosed A week after she was asked.

Right now she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bedAnd cannot really do anything or play with the gifts she is getting frompeople, but she LOVES getting cards - she has gotten so many from people she does not know and jus t loves to have grandma read about the people who send Them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just filled with cards.When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see howMany Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groupswhere children are making her cards. People are including pictures so shecan see who it i s that i s sending her the card.

If you would like to help with her wish, please send her a card at:

Hannah Garman
704 Orchard Rd
Lititz, PA 17543

THANKS! Feel free to pass this along to your own prayer group, church,school, etc. Let's see if we can have the cards coming in big postal bagsfor her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

Please pray for her family. Her older brother & sister watched their mom go through This just two short years ago and now they are watching their baby sister.P.S.

My husband and I sent off a card today for little Hannah. She is in our prayers that she has the best Christmas ever. Her brother and sister are also in our prayers because their plight is far from easy.

I cross-posted this on our site this morning. We are urging all of our readers to jump on board and make Hannah's wish come true.

Well count me in. We sent our Christmas card last week from Vancouver, WA..

I know this is part of life, but how terribly tragic for this family. They are, and will be in our prayers going forward.

Merry Christmas!
