Pulling for Mr. R.


Yesterday I heard some disturbing news while at the school. One of the teachers was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. The outlook is good as they caught it in time. He will have surgery next month and be off work for a couple of months. This man is amazingly upbeat! He said he's glad that this is what it is and now he can face it head on and deal with it. His will and strength is to be admired, that's for sure!
I wish him the best! So this is the card I made for him. He was so excited to receive it today! I was thrilled that HE was thrilled....LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Dawn,

I'm sorry to hear about the teacher but I'm glad that he sounds strong which is important when these things happen. I hope he pulls through and everything will work out for him.

Your card is a fabulous card! Very appropriate and I'm sure will be appreciated. I really love the 3D smoke! Really cool!
