Hello July 28, 2006 8:27 AM
Hello, I am new here and may be the only time I am here, not sure. Something came across my emails and I felt I wanted to do something so I came here in hopes of some help, if you can and will, and spread the word!
They are asking that cards be sent to:
Alyssa Bruno Birthday Cards
Federation of Social workers
167 Flanders St. D-12
Rochester, NY 14619
there's 2 links attached to verify & it shows the address that her
are suggesting the cards be sent to.
Subject: Rush Henrietta 1st Grader
This is from one of the teachers in the Rush Henrietta district.
Hi Friends, Family, Colleagues and Random People who
got on my email list!
As many of you are aware, this past school year one
of my kindergartners, Alyssa Bruno, was diagnosed with
diffuse pontine glioma (stem cell brain tumor). She had a successful year
of kindergarten, but took a dramatic turn for the worse at the end of the
school year. As of now she has lost all movement in her left side and
can't walk or talk. She has been on five different
chemotherapy treatments and continues to be a little trooper!
Everyone is praying that this upcoming week's dose
of chemo will show some signs of improvement.
On August 2nd Alyssa will be celebrating her 6th
birthday. I've been thinking for a long time about what to get for her,
but she is very limited with what she can do right now. One thing
Alyssa LOVES is to
get mail. So I thought I'd email everyone on my list and ask for you
all to please consider sending Alyssa a birthday card with a penny enclosed for good luck!.
I am going to have Alyssa collect them in a jar as a reminder
of all the people who are out there praying for her
How neat would that be for Alyssa to receive cards from all over
the country and perhaps the world! I'd love it if you all could also forward this message
to everyone on your list. (I'm not a fan of chain letters, but this
would really make Alyssa's day and brighten her spirits!)
I know how busy everyone is these days, but sending a card to this little girl would
give her a little something to look forward to each day when she gets the mail.
Forward this along to anyone who you think might send a card.
Thank you so much,
Marcy Mooney - Alyssa's teacher
