Default A special request

Hello ladies, I have a wee favour to ask of you. I have a very dear friend in Arizona, she has a son who is very sick. Not only does he have HepC he also has mental health issues. His mom (my friend) is terrified he will sink into a black hole and she won't see her son again. He is a silly lad, who got mixed up in a mad lifestyle and is now paying a very heavy price. She is asking anyone and everyone to please, just send a brief note, a card anything to keep his spirits up as she fights for treatment and proper care for him out here. I would so appreciate it, if you would send him a card. If you could just say, it's a card of encouragement sent at his mom's request. I truly can't thank you ladies enough, here are his details.

** Address removed per Forum policy, pls pm OP for inmate info **

He may not be able to write and thank you as he really is that sick, so I will say a huge and heartfelt thanks to all who write him.

Ofcourse I will send a card (I copied the info already)

But you will soon notice that the info you put in your request regarding David will be deleted by one of the moderators, since it is not allowed to share this info on a public forum . It is better to wait for responses and then send those people the info in a PM.

You ladies are just THE best - thank you all. I am pleased some of you know this young man, he is not bad, he is sick and needs help. I just know your love will make a difference.

Thank you all again ladies. I received a message from D's mom today, she is overwhelmed by your kindness. She is also beyond worried as D has not been able to call her so she has no idea how he is doing. I will let you all know once I hear anything. It has to be terrifying for both D and his mom right now.
