Another Sebastian Update

Download wordart here

The new surgery date has been set! Sebastian will have his surgery on March 7 at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. I know some of you have been holding onto your cards and others were worried that your cards wouldn't arrive in time. We have plenty of time to collect even more cards, so please keep sharing the link!

Now.....time for a couple of feel good stories!

I know that several of you mailed your cards to the hospital before we learned of the surgery delay and were worried about what would happen to them. NEVER FEAR! Someone at the hospital went out of their way to make sure that the cards got to Sebastian. They delievered them to his house! How awesome is that!

This next story shows just how small the world really is.....

Sebastian's physical therapist came to see him today, just like he does every Tuesday, but today he took the time to tell me a story about his daughter.

His daughter, who is in second grade, came home from school last week and told her parents how her entire class had made cards for a little boy named Sebastian. After listening to everything she had to say, her dad pulled up my blog and showed her the pictures of Sebastian on the card request post. Having no idea that her dad knew Sebastian, she very excitedly said, "That's him!" Her dad explained that he knew Sebastian and had even been working with him for several years now. She had no idea that her dad had already given me a card for Sebastian or that her dad is one of Sebastian's favorite people in the whole world.

Apparently, she was very excited about going back to school and sharing her Sebastian "connection" with her teacher.


  1. My card is in the post today (from UK), good news to hear that things are progressing with the surgery....my thoughts are with Sebastian and his family...thankyou for sharing the stories. It never ceases to amaze me how someone can cast a small pebble in the water and the ripples can reach far and wide....I think you have done something special for Sebastian and his family.
