Cheer Wall the Sequel

Hello again,

Another note on 65_RedRoses. Our home girl Eva (the star of the show) is not having a good time right now. She is experiencing chronic rejection and is back on the transplant list waiting for another chance at life. The whole situation really sucks. She was having trouble breathing and had to be taken into hospital on Wednesday.

Needless to say, the girl could use some cheering up. Remember the cheer wall that you all helped to make for Joey when he was stuck in hospital after his transplant? Eva’s friends and family are creating one for her. Cards make people happy!

Here is your mission angels: please send some cheer to the following address.

Eva Markvoort
217 Third Ave
New Westminster, BC
V3L 1L9

You don’t have to know her to send a card; she is a shining star in the CF community and our little star needs her days brightened right now. If you’re looking for something to say, consider the following suggestions:

Thinking of you
Wishing you well
Hope you get your transplant soon
This situation sucks
You are an amazing person
Don’t know you, but heard you needed some cheer

Thank you everyone in advance. Remember, her documentary airs on CBC’s the passionate eye tomorrow night. (It will also be repeated on Sunday, November 22nd). Well worth the watch. If you are interested in monitoring her current progress, here’s the link to her live journal:

Thanks to everyone again for their ongoing support.

Kirstin and Joey
