    If you have a moment and a spare Christmas card, could you send one to Cole and his parents, Nathan and Wendy, at St. Jude's? They have started Cole's chemo, and this first round will go through the holiday season. We don't know yet what our Christmas plans will be, but I think it would brighten their holiday to know how many folks out there care what happens to them and are praying, lighting candles, sending positive vibes, and etc.

    Here's his address:

    Cole Kaspar MR#25121
    c/o St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital
    332 North Lauderdale St.
    Memphis, TN 38105-2794

    I'll mail a card out tomorrow. Also, I am only 30 minutes south of Memphis. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

    How can anyone resist sending a spare or homemade Christmas card to that little cutie. He's such a treasure. I'm sure Nathan and Wendy would appreciate the cards too. They'll get to read all the cards to Cole. :)

    Rose, I hope you're holding up well and taking care of yourself through all this. My heart goes out to you and your family in this stressful time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    Sending a card is on my to do list for today! St Judes is an AWESOME hospital! He is in good hands there. Does the family have a place to stay? If not have them check into Ronald McDonald house. I believe it is free for families of children that are being treated and the facilities are really nice.

    They are currently at "Grizzly House" which is funded by the Memphis basketball team. Here's a link to the wikipedia info on St. Jude's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Jude_Children's_Research_Hospital

    I think they are moving to "Target House" next week, as they will be there long term. Target was not one of my favorite stores, but I'll be shopping there more often now.

    We are so blessed that St. Jude's has a study going on Cole's kind of cancer, neuroblastoma. They weren't giving him very good odds at the hospital in California.

    Thank you all for taking time to send a card. You are the BEST!!

    Huggs,
    Rose / aka Alice
