I am collecting books for 3 young girls in my community. Two of them are fighting for their lives for the SECOND time against cancer, and the other little girl is a little sister who donated her bone marrow to save her sister's life. Emma is 3 years old and has been fighting cancer since she was one. She has a PTL cancer which means she has a malignant tumor on her brain. She was in remission for 3 months but recently found out the cancer was back and is now on chemo again. Taylor is a 12 year old young lady who has been fighting Leukemia since 2010. She too was in remission but the cancer came back worse than before. Her little 4 year old sister Gracie donated her blood marrow (which I hear is a very painful experience) to save her big sister's life. These 3 girls all enjoy books and are going to be spending a lot of time in the hospital with nothing to do. So I am collecting books for the three of them and hoping they will get some enjoyment during this horrible time. If you have any deals on books that would fit in their age groups or would like to donate books, stickers, or quiet activites please let me know. Thanks!! -Panda

Also, Emma LOVES Justin Bieber so if you have anything that has something to do with him and would like to donate it as well, I know she will love it!

I have books suitable for the younger girls -- any idea what kinds of books the 12 year old would like?  Please PM an address.  Lisa

The Anne of Green Gables series is one of my favorites and if you think Taylor would like them, contact me.
