I think for a cause like this, bumping is good. I've only just seen it, and I've been trying to look for new posts each evening.

Might I suggest we print out our characters with text in a balloon? The chat balloon will generally last long enough to get a screenie with it.

No need to do that, I'll sticky it through the weekend so people will see it.

I am absolutely awful at drawing, but my heart felt prayers goes out for you, your father and family. May you all be blessed and be able to continue meeting in the community of City of Heroes for many years to come.

I wish I'd printed this off to send with my card.  Doh.

Maybe someone else can.  (Sorta nsfw)

Funny you should ask, he just called me all excited over air mail. It really made his day. He loved it and said thank you to who sent it. He wasn't expecting anything and it's great his community, the heroes community, cares.

Dad recieved another letter today. A post card actually which he described as "cool". I think he said 2 postcards. TY from both of us. He's really loving it and it makes his day better.

Update on his Drs. He went to the other cancer hospital and met with a really nice Dr.which explained that his condition is extremely rare and almost unheard of in adults. It usually is only seen in children. He then told him he is actually in pretty good shape for having it. He suggested that he take the cancer pills (they are supposed to stop the growth) and see if those work. Since there have been no studies done on this type of cancer for those pills he's curious if they will help. He said they should monitor him and if it's not helping give him different chemo. Once they've exhausted all options there are some studies he can join. Also, Mercedes, he (the Dr.) said that he believes you are right about Mayo. He believes this cancer is so rare that Mayo would ship him in for free.

I'll keep ypu all updated and keep the cards comming, thanks a bunch. 

Oh, another update, dad said his visit with bob has been postponed to tomorrow. I hope he gets a chance to ask him and he sais yes. Cross your fingers.

Sounds like he got ours.  We sent him postcard size prints of two of Larry's covers in the same book series.

Cross-posting this from the "re-alignment of company focus" thread, as I use a quote from Moonyfire in here and mention his situation with his father (though I name no names, I do link the "Save Paragon City!" subforum). If I offend in any way, or if this is information anybody doesn't want released to the press, please let me know so I can edit it!

Thanks!
