For a Dino-Mite Boy

Hey all my crafty friends, I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday.. Well, I have was checking out blogs the other day and I can across a few posts about a sweet little 2 year old named Aiden.. He is in need of SMILES and I wanted to share his story with you all ..I hope it will touch you as much as it touched me and you will help by creating a card to put a smile on this sweet angels face..

Tanya from Scrappin KY Momma needs help from all of us crafters. She knows this little boy and his family and would like to send him cards. Here’s his story…

Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So….

Let’s get our crafting supplies out and send this lil guy some LOVE!!! Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes and make something special for him that will bring LOTS of smiles and he can look at over and over. We all know how laughing and smiling can be good for the soul. Let’s give him this much for him to enjoy while he’s battling this horrible disease. I have no doubt in my mind that God can perform a miracle in this beautiful child. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.Lets all come together and put Lots of BIG Smiles on Aidan’s and his parents faces.
