My Paper Crafting and Madison's I Feel the Love Project for March

Hi everyone one, it is time for My Paper Crafting's Cricut challenge and also March's "I Feel the Love Project" by Madison! Please read about this cute little girl and her battle to be well again, then how about mailing a card of encouragement to her! I think as a parent this has got to be one of the most horrific things that could happen to your child. Please keep Claire in your thoughts and prayers as she is going to certainly need them as well as her family.  This sweet Claire has the same name my grand-daughter Claire has, so it touches my heart even more.

Here is my card for Claire, I hope it makes her smile cause she sure is a cutie when she is smiling! My card base is a joy fold card, I used Teddy Bear Parade for my cute bear bunny, the Easter paper is from an all season Paper Studio stack and the other papers are just from my scrap bins, sentiment and inside bunny die are from My Creative Time and the buttons are SU. My little bunny tails are Vivia liquid pearls.

Read more about Madison's I Feel the Love Project below and please think about sending this adorable sweet child some sunshine today.

I Feel the Love Project - March 2013
 Claire Koreck

This is Claire's story as told on her blog, 
"The day after Christmas 2012, four-year-old Claire Koreck was taken to the doctor by her parents (Sheila and Patrick) for unexplained complaints of arm pain. A subsequent x-ray showed a fracture as well as multiple bone lesions, an alarming finding. They were immediately sent to CHOP and Claire was admitted overnight to have multiple tests performed. After days of uncertainty and more trips to the hospital a biopsy was done. 
On January 2nd 2013 Sheila and Pat were facing every parent’s worst nightmare: Claire had been diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma.  Ewing's Sarcoma is a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. It's one of a group of cancers known collectively as the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT or sometimes just EFT). It's the second most common bone cancer in children, but it's also relatively uncommon. It accounts for only 1% of all childhood cancers.
Claire and her family now face a very long and difficult journey. Her sisters Maeve (age 6) and Sarah (age 2), and her twin brother Declan are too young to grasp the magnitude of the situation but they know that their sister is sick and the doctors and nurses are going to make her better. The treatment regiment calls for extended rounds of chemotherapy that could possibly last into the summer months, followed by surgery to remove the tumor, and finally radiation. As difficult as the road ahead will be for Claire and her family, they have no doubt whatsoever that the excellent staff at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the continued prayers and support of friends and family, will restore their Warrior Princess Claire back to full health...Please also feel free to follow Claire’s progress or offer words of encouragement to her and her family at her Caring Bridgesite."
