Send a Special Note from Your Pet to a Little Girl with a Brain Tumor – UPDATE on Phoebe
When you are three, the whole world is a magical place; filled with princesses and possibilities. Last March, three-year-old Phoebe (whose family lives in the tristate area) was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), a rare, terminal brain tumor.
Little Miss Phoebe has a passion. She loves animals - to the point that some might call her a tad bit obsessed. As the mom of a three-year-old girl, I totally get it.
A Facebook page dedicated to Phoebe's journey found a way for the child to take her mind off her illness. They asked that animals from all over the country send her a note and a photo about themselves.
So, where is Miss Phoebe now? The group Kids Face Cancer made a video about Phoebe's Journey.
Here is a little of our story. Hopefully, you will hear this and decide to take action! Pediatric Cancer Awareness month starts today and GIVES YOU THE CHANCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Our most sincere thanks to Dr. Sri Gururangan for his outstanding care, Lexi Griffin Behrndt of On Coming Alive for the vision for this video, and Zachary Read of zachread.com for the most beautiful 3:30 video we have ever seen.
If your pet would like to send a letter to Phoebe, see the info below. Of course, the pet parents will have to do the writing but Phoebe's Friends FB page asked this of the letters:
We are asking anyone and everyone with pets of any kind to send a letter FROM THEIR ANIMAL along with a picture to her. Talk about what they do for fun, work, what they like to eat, etc. Flex your creative writing muscles. Please don't mention anything about being sick. Just keep it light, fun, and make believe. Hoping she has something in the mailbox every single day.
