I was hoping to include a picture of Hannah with her Toy Drive collection box, but unfortunately she came home from school this afternoon not feeling well. She never really got any better tonight, finally ate one piece of dry toast. She is complaining of a stomach ache, headache and sore throat. When I signed her out at school, there were many other sick kids on the sign out sheet so a lot of kids are sick right now. 

Thanks to Stephanie, we have a Santa suit waiting to go! We also got word that the hospital has a family for us to adopt for Christmas. We know that the girl is a pre-teen, but we are awaiting all the other details. 

In case you missed last night's entry....please check below.


Toy Drive

Yes, we are in need of toys, lots of toys and FAST! We will be delivering these toys to the hospital and the family sometime during the week before Christmas, which doesn't leave us a lot of time. We need boy and girl toys, of all ages, but mostly in the age range 6 years old and above. There are kids of all ages on the oncology floor, but not that many very young children. The children were most often around Hannah's age or older. If you are out and about shopping for Christmas, please help us help these kids, many of whom will be in the hospital on Christmas, instead of at home with their family, as they should be. It's difficult to be in the hospital, and especially difficult to be in the hospital on a holiday.

Please consider donating to Hannah's Cans for Cancer Toy Drive this year. If you do not have time to purchase a gift, and could drop off or send a donation instead, that would be appreciated also and will go directly to purchasing gifts for the children. Hannah designed a sign for the bin that will be out in our driveway beginning Monday, December 1st. Please drop off any unwrapped gifts to our Toy Drive box at our home, 1556 Grand Ave, Mattituck. If you would like us to come pick up at your house, we would be happy to, just send me an email or call (information on the side bar on the left of this page.)
