Help Hannah have a great Christmas this year.

Hannah| Facebook

This is the true story of 5-yr old, Hannah Garman, who was
diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor.
She has been given 12 weeks to live and is currently in her 7th week. She
was going to be the flower girl in a wedding in May, but was diagnosed
A week after we asked her to be the flower girl. This is especially sad
because her mother died 2 yrs ago from breast cancer.

Right now she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bed
And cannot really do anything or play with the gifts she is getting from
people, but she LOVES getting cards - she has gotten so many from people she does
not know and just loves to have grandma read about the people who send
Them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just
filled with cards.

When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see how
Many Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to
their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groups
where children are making her cards. People are including pictures so she
can see who it is that is sending her the card.

If you would like to help with her wish, you can send a card to her at:

Hannah Garman
704 Orchard Rd
Lititz, PA 17543

THANKS! Feel free to pass this along to your own prayer group, church,
school, etc. Let's see if we can hav e the cards coming in big postal bags
for her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

For more about Hannah visit CaringBridge. Free Websites That Support And Connect Loved Ones During Critical Illness.

I was bitching and ranting about my life's issues today.. We often forget how fortunate we really are. It's only a card and it would mean a lot.

Not to be a Grinch, but has this been confirmed as NOT a hoax?

I can't make any promises.
But on her website there's a bunch of family photos and if you type her name on google images the first that shows up appears to be the same girl. Hopefully it's not.. but if it is, the most you can lose is a Christmas Card.

It is UNDETERMINED on snopes.com but here is the link to her Caring Bridge guestbook: http://www.caringbridge.org/cb/viewG...od=executeInit

I think it is legit and if so, is one of the saddest stories I have ever read. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when pregnant with Hannah and postponed treatment until after she was born. She died when Hannah was 3. Now Hannah has cancer. Ugh. This is really a tear jerker story. Get out your tissues!
