This is a card I made this morning for a very special little boy named Ben. As Ben's mum describes him, Ben was born "blessed with an extra chromosome," (Down Syndrome), and is the sparkling light of her life. In May 2007, Ben was diagnosed with leukemia, and has recently come out of remission. His only hope of long term survival now is a bone marrow transplant. He's on a waiting list for a match.
Ben loves things typically loved by all 7 year old boys and animals are among his favorites so I wanted to make him a little "thinking of you" card with this darling and whimsical turtle image.
