I know we have not been on here very much lately, but without much explanation other than life is hard right now, we would really just like to talk about someone else much more important. Time is of essence so we are pasting this from our cousins facebook page for all our friends to read. If you would like to send her a card her addy is in the story. Just let them know you are friends of us three pugs.
Thank you so much
Stella Rose, Margaret Mae and Angus Mac
What did you want for your 11th birthday? What would you have wanted if it might be your last birthday celebration? What wish would u make when you blew out that candle on your beautiful birthday cake? These are questions no one should ever have to ponder let alone a 10 year old girl. These questions are what a little 10 year old girl has thought about, these very much real questions. Her name is Ava and she lives in Bondurant, IA. Ava, is a warrior like most warrior kids who are fighting the unfair & cruel battle against Cancer. This warrior isn't shy to the battlefield, she has fought this battle once before as a toddler. Cancer picks our bravest children our brave loved ones to go to war. We have no choice w...e have no volunteer to take their place not even a time out. It's you, you have been chosen so the war begins sometimes before we even know we are at battle. And sometimes the risk of the tactics to win the battle is that we might get chosen again. As cruel and heartbreaking as it is, it happens. Ava has been chosen to battle again and she is showing how brave she truly is, clear down to her soul. The bravest warriors always do. Since there is nothing most of us can do but send our positive thoughts, our pleading prayers for her to fight & win, her family has decided that this year her golden birthday will be the party any brave warrior deserves. So what does this brave warrior want? A pony? A day being treated as a real princess? An easy bake oven? Nope, none of these things...
She wants just a simple birthday card, okay she wants lots of birthday cards. So since no warrior should ever receive just one birthday card, we are asking for anyone, any grandma, any parent, any child, any office, any school, anyone and from everywhere just to send a birthday card to this brave little warrior so she knows we all wish her the best birthday ever ... A birthday unlike any warrior has ever seen! Mike Graves, a friend of the family will be delivering any cards he receives for Ava at her birthday party on Sept 11, 2016. Can you imagine getting birthday cards from across the city, the state, the country, or even the ocean? So please join us and send a birthday card to Ava @ Mike Graves -cards for Ava 104 9th ST SE Altoona, IA 50009 . I honestly hope that they we receive so many, that we have deliver tubs of cards to her! To see a warrior smile is truly the best smile on earth. Cards can be homemade or store bought, Ava just wants birthday cards :) please send them soon as you can!
