The "Alex" Basket by Jennifer

Download Attachment...
 Alex is one of my favourite girls.  She was diagnosed with bone cancer - Ewing's Sarcoma - about fifteen months ago.  What do you do?  You sew her a quilt, make her a couple of hats and you get her favourite popcorn sent from Chicago.  In November you find out that she won that battle. 
But in December she was diagnosed with Leukemia, cause by the chemotherapy treatment for the bone cancer.  Now what do you do?  You bring food to the hospital to feed the family.  And then you ask your boss if you can plant some hanging baskets containing only pink flowers.  And that's what we did.  They are starting to grow and by May they will be beautiful.  For every one we sell $5 will go towards cancer research.
Alex is still in hospital, but she is a fighter. In May, when the weather is warm and the snow is finally gone I will bring her an "Alex" basket.  I'm sure she will like it.  
It's just what you do.
