Jant is a PBS member mentioned on my profile as one of those unsung heros.  She found out in casual PMs a while back that I can't read books anymore; fatigue sydromes and vision problems have changed my medium to audiobooks.  I ordered a lot from her and then I started getting more boxes and more and I told her I listen and then I send them on to a friend who has macular degeneration and then he sends them to a friend whose sister was born blind, and then they go to a man who was blinded by a land mine in Viet Nam and from there to a nursing home and any they can't use go to the local library.  She just started sending more.

Earlier this month, Jan had a major heart attack.  She PMed me asking for prayers and I've posted this on the CMT, and on the share and care board, mostly because I'm hoping to get a whole lot of people to send her cards.  She gave me her address and said I could share it.  If you can send a card, just PM  me and I'll give you her address.  If you can't, that's fine.  Just a prayer, a good thought, some energy  ...  Anything.

Thanks!  Jade

Thanks from me and Jan to all of you who have posted.  I am reminded that we are not just a book club; we are a family.
