Sticker Therapy

Yep, I am still on vacation but I want to let you know about a little project you can help with. 

Operation Sticker Therapy.

Remember sweet Abigail Goss? She is the sweet little one who is fighting stage 4 cancer. It has been a very bumpy road and many of you have helped out. Her sweet mama has thought of a way to help out other little ones who are also facing this struggle. That is how she is, always thinking of others even when she is facing the toughest battle of her life. Read the info below that she has posted on her blog page and help if you can. 

Operation: Sticker Therapy
Your mission: to help bring happiness and distraction to toddlers fighting cancer by mailing stickers, sticker books, or happy vibes!
Hi! This is Abigail the day before her 2nd birthday. You can see her central line and her surgery scar.
When she was 19 months old she was critically ill, and diagnosed with cancer--stage 4, high-risk Neuroblastoma.
She has been through a lot--with a lot still yet to go through. Abigail loves stickers and they offer distraction and entertainment during multiple hospital stays.
When kids are fighting cancer, they go through a lot of yucky therapies: chemotherapy, radiation therapy, antibody therapy, etc. We decided to call this project Sticker Therapy...a therapy they could look forward to!!
Our goal with Operation: Sticker Therapy is to receive enough stickers to be able to put some packets together to share with other children we meet who are fighting for their lives. We encourage you to donate some stickers, and then know that you are blessing the lives of some precious children.
Please mail them to:
To: Operation: Sticker Therapy
C/O Fans Across America Charitable Foundation
18521 E. Queen Creek Rd., Suite 105-187
Queen Creek, AZ 85142
Thank you for your kindness and generosity, and may it be returned unto you!
If you would like to make a financial donation to Abigail, that would be greatly appreciated. You can do so by visiting this site:
or by including a check payable to "Abigail Goss Medical Trust Fund" with your stickers. Thank you dearly!

SHari--i dont know if your the same shari that my in-laws are friends with ( they are the bagleys) . but this post is so touching!! i love it, and i would like to donate to your cause.
my daughter had leukemia at 10 months old and is a bone marrow transplant survivor.
im so grateful for people like you!! and your cause!!
one thing that helped my daughter--something she loved so much was a peice of fabric that had all kinds of beautiful buttons on it. for some reason that was like the "stickers" you talk about --and it distracted her greatly. but then again, she was under 2 years old through all of this.
god bless you for what you are doing and helping with!!

Hi Jill! Yes, I know the Bagley's well. Jason was one of my best friends in Jr. High and into High school. Tell him Hi for me! Thanks for your comment. I remember reading about your daughter and am so glad she is in remission. She is an inspiration.
