Leukemia - Maintenance Week 4 - A Package from Africa

Jemma's blood sugar is under control with her low sugar diet and her blood is at the desired low level. Although it's hard to see in the picture, her hair is starting to grow back again.

Did you know that Jemma has received packages from strangers in Michigan, Illinois, Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia, England, and Australia? There are so many kind and giving people in this world.

This past weekend she received a package from Gambia.

We had to look up where Gambia was on the map, and now we want to visit.

The package included an African doll, drum, mask, money, bag, flag, and jewelry among the tourist brochure and postcards.

I'm continually amazed by the kindness and thoughtfulness that exists in this world. People on four continents - Europe, Australia, North America and Africa - have supported our family during this journey. Amazing!

  1. I am glad Jemma liked her package .I was feeling so bad it took so long . I started working on it a year ago when i was preparing some cultural exchange packages for other montessori friends but you know more than anybody else how it is when you are dealing with sickness . Praying for healing for Jemma xxxx

    1. I thought it looked a lot like a cultural exchange package. It's better that it took a while because it was more fun that way. - Thank you:)

  2. My prayers are with you and your family. I hope your daughter continues to grow. I love your blog, what great ideas.
