Sticker Therapy


I have a sweet spot in my heart for children with cancer. I spent a lot of time in high school working with a pediatric cancer foundation in California. There is no greater cause. Today, my sister-in-law, Cathy, has a really great project for us. I hope you can help! Her little friend, Abigail, is fighting cancer and has had it pretty rough. During her treatment, she has had to go through lots of yucky therapies like chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and antibody therapy. One thing that keeps her happy during her long hospital stays are stickers. She loves stickers! So Cathy and a few others have come up with "Sticker Therapy" to distract Abigail and other children like her, and to help them feel a little bit better when they are feeling pretty rotten. 


Here's where they need your help: They are trying to collect as many stickers as they can to create sticker books for these sick kids. If you have any stickers laying around your house (I know I do!) or are willing to purchase stickers to donate (You can easily pick some up next time you're at the supermarket!), please email me at barefootstephanie@gmail.com and I will give you all the information you need. Whether you have one page of stickers or a whole roll, they would welcome your donation! And you would really be brightening some tough little spirits.

Thank you!
