Yesterday, 9 year-old Valory Newton, underwent life-changing surgery.  She is doing well, the procedure went “text book”.  She now has a “nubby” after the amputation of her lower left leg.

Valory requested Mac and Cheese and to see her new ‘nubby’.  Her spirits are high, as always.

Now for the part where we can do something special.

Did you know that Nationwide Children’s Hospital, allows you to create a card, online — where they print it off and deliver it to the room… for FREE?

The hospital staff delivers the personalized greetings to the room, a couple times a day.

I was tipped off to this by Valory’s mom, Dyana Newton​.  Valory has witnessed other patients receive these high-quality cards, and made a remark or two… accompanied with a smile.

This is where we can do something special. Will you take two seconds, create a card and send it?

How beautiful would it be to flood this little dancer’s hospital room, with cards and well-wishes?

Each card allows you to upload pictures and include 750 characters of text.

UPDATED: (10:00 AM 4/24/15):

Meet the new, healthier version of Valory Newton.

This girl, wanted to sit on the chair and start walking, so she did. Her surgery isn’t a day old.

Yesterday, a team of Doctors removed her leg. This morning, she is up and walking.

What’s your excuse? Yesterday is the past, change your future… pick yourself up and do something.

How inspiring are these pictures? The very definition of kicking cancer’s ass, with a smile on your face.
