Last month, Looking Glass Animal Rescue's Co-Founder and husband received news that no parent should ever have to hear: "Your child has cancer." Their 10 year old son, Bennett, was diagnosed with a fairly rare form of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma called Nodular Lymphocyte-Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma (only 8 cases diagnosed in the US each year!). The family lived in Ridgefield, CT but just moved to New Hampshire this year so, as a surprise, LGAR would like for kids of all age groups to create cards to send to Bennett.
We have organized a card making workshop at Serene Escape Spa on Saturday, April 27th from 2-4pm. Paper, markers, stickers, etc., will all be provided, as well as nut-free snacks for the kids. All ages can attend! You don't have to be from Ridgefield, CT to participate. If you're unable to attend, the kids can create cards at home and, once completed, the cards can be dropped off at Serene Escape Spa in Ridgefield, CT during business hours (sereneescapespa.com/contact). Daniela Raciti, Director of Marketing and Operations, will then pick them up and mail them to Bennett.
In case you are not near Ridgefield, CT and would like to participate, feel free to mail the cards to:
PO Box 1175, Ridgefield, CT 06877
