Meet Hannah “Fontana”!

Meet Miss Hannah.

Artist, reader and the greatest big sister in the world!

Hannah is also a patient.

Right this minute she is in the hospital with aplastic anemia.

I’ve never met Hannah, but I met her friend, Jason, through Twitter (@jseliskar).


Now it seems that Hannah loves to get mail.

Snail-mail, that is.

Good old fashioned cards and letters and pictures from other kids and…well, you get the idea!


Hannah’s mom, Debbie, is working on scrapbook pages while she is with Hannah in the hospital.

That’s where I got this photo.

Now, I’ve never met Debbie, either, but she has a great blog called “Our Journey to China for Hannah’s Little Sister, Hope”.

Now the blog chronicles the miracle of Hope (literally!) and the results of hopes and prayers for Hannah’s recovery from aplastic anemia.


So, what if we all sent a card, or a letter or a picture to Hannah?

Not money, or gifts, but a wonderful envelope full of warm wishes and prayers.

There’s a little girl out there who would love to receive them!

Send your cards and letters to:

Miss Hannah “Fontana” Eriksen

PO BOX 4257

Rancho Cucamonga, CA


And don’t ever doubt the power of a 140 character post; it can literally brighten someone’s life.

    What a lovely idea. I m with Hannah, I like real snail mail (that isn’t a bill thank you!) as well. I will definitely get a card out to her pronto and pray for healing for her. Thanks for giving us an opportunity to do something good for someone who needs it!
