I'm sharing a special card today. An adorable little six-year old boy passed away almost 2 weeks ago from a pediatric stroke. I didn't know a child could even have a stroke...much less did I ever think Noah would pass away from it. Although I don't know the family, I have family members that do know this family and we were all praying for little Noah. Noah's family is now trying to raise awareness of the signs of pediatric strokes and I thought I'd take some time to, not only share the card I made for them, but also help raise awareness. Here's my card and then you'll also find some facts about pediatric strokes.
I can't imagine the grief the family is going through. However, Noah continues impacting people's lives. And I sincerely hope that by raising awareness the number of families dealing with this kind of loss will decrease drastically.
I'm entering the card in various challenges--in the hopes of getting the word out to as many as possible.

Please join me in praying for Katie and Trent Russell as they go through the painful process of grieving. If you're interested in learning more about their story and seeing how maybe you, too, can raise awareness, you can use the hashtag on Facebook and it'll take you to their page. If you'd like to send a sympathy card, an address can be found on the Facebook page also or email me and I'll provide it via email.
Hugs your loved ones a little tighter tonight, too.
