Unstoppable Happiness

I couldn't think of a better way to pass my holiday wishes to my blog friends than with this card designed by Addison, an 8 year old who is fighting cancer. I have written about Addison a few times since he was diagnosed with Leukemia in April, 2010.  He will have his final chemo treatment in June, 2013. Addison, whose mom is a good friend of my daughter Joanna, is an amazing kid who has fought his disease with incredible courage and the motto "I don't have time for cancer".

For those of you on Facebook you can click on the link below to share this card and generate a donation to fight childhood cancer.
Share this holiday card designed by Addison, an 8-year-old facing cancer, by December 30, 2012 and the Northwestern Mutual Foundation will donate $1 to fight childhood cancer - up to $25,000.


Throughout his treatment Addison has been a spokesperson for fund raising for childhood cancer.  One of his projects has been to collect letters to Santa for the Macy's Believe campaign which benefits the Make-a-Wish foundation. Addison, who is a Make-a-Wish child himself, collected over 4000 letters last year and wants to surpass that number this year. Macy's donates $1 to Make-a-Wish for each letter received. You can read about Addison's efforts here:

Thanks to Addison for helping me wish each of you "Unstoppable Happiness"
