Hannah's last Christmas - her wish

I just re-read this and need to clarify something. This was passed on to me. I am not related to her. Sorry, I meant to fix that part. I did go to the Caring Bridge sight and this is for real.

This was from the letter that was passed on to me. She is not related to me. This was written by her second cousin.

This is the true story of a 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 our 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

If you would like to help with her wish, you can send a card to her
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 have the cards coming in big
postal bags for her this Christmas, since it will be her last holiday.

Marci, I'll be in prayer that the chemo helps give Hannah some extra time.

I'll be passing this along.

Please keep praying for Hannah!!! She is 4 years old. Her birthday is in janurary. She does have a very rare tumor of the brain that is cancerous and very aggressive. However she has not been given 11 or 12 weeks to live and she is not in her 7th week as some reports have said. Please don’t presume that her time left with us is based on those reports !!! Please know she is getting treatment. Thank you for your generosity!
