Owl Punch place tag

You've just gotta love the Owl Punch from Stampin Up, I do..... I also have a bit of an addiction at the moment for punch art.  Hope you like my latest creation - a name place setting.....really easy....just make an owl and attach it to a bulldog clip.  Take care......  Scrapin Mel.

Help Shanice

Shanice is an 8 year old girl from Tuggeranong in the ACT who loves dancing, Hannah Montana and watching the Canberra Raiders with her family. Shanice has a rare platelet disorder called Congenital Amegakaryocytic Thrombocytopenia (CAMT). Her blood has difficulty clotting, she bruises easily and bleeds longer when injured. In addition to the platelet disorder, Shanice’s family have recently been told by her specialists that they have discovered a chromosome that will unfortunately develop into leukaemia.

Shanice urgently needs a Bone Marrow Transplant, but a suitable donor has not been found after a worldwide search. The family has been told that she will need the transplant before the end of the year, and, since a suitable donor is not available, Shanice’s father will be the donor. There is a 50% chance that the Transplant will be successful.

Shanice’s Bone Marrow Transplant has been scheduled for December 2010. The transplant process will require Shanice to undergo Chemotherapy for several weeks prior to the transplant and post transplant will require her to be in isolation for at least a 4-6 week period to reduce the risk of infection and rejection. Shanice will undergo her treatment at Randwick Children’s Hospital and her family will reside in Sydney during this process for a period of at least 3 months. As Shanice’s father is a contractor and won’t be able to work during the transplant process, there will be a significant financial drain on the family. Shanice’s mum works at Medicare Australia where her friends and colleagues are undertaking fundraising efforts to assist the family through this difficult time.

We are seeking your assistance in raising awareness of Shanice’s story and helping us to raise much needed funds for Shanice and her family. Any assistance you can offer would be extremely appreciated, and forever remembered. I hope that you can attend the Christmas Stamp Class on 27 November 2010.
