Wishes for Bella....

If you got here from Maria's blog then you are on the right track........if you have just stumbled across my blog then please take part in this hop by starting at the beginning which is at.... Denise's blog.
If you get lost along the way, I will have the hop list at the bottom of this post.

This is the 2nd blog hop for Wishes for Bella, there will be another 2, one next Tuesday 6th July and the final one on 13th July.

There are a couple of reasons for this blog hop:

Firstly,to share the story of strength & courage of an 8 yr old girl and to ask you to help her and her family in any way you can.

This is Bella.........

You can read Bella's story here.

Bella came down with a near fatal illness on Easter Sunday 2010. She fought hard for 5 days and the near fatal infection caused extensive tissue damage, she had to undergo quadruple amputation surgery..................changing Bella forever.

When you have kids of your own then you can really understand how much heartache Bella and her family are going through.

Seconly,send some love to her by sending her a card. A nice homemade card along the lines of 'thinking of you'. Your card does not have to be a new one, but you should be able to send it!
All cards should be sent to:

The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry, NH
03053 USA

This is the card I have sent to Bella...hope she likes it.
