A Birthday Card for Rafael

After spending almost half his life battling cancer, Rafael Moraes is looking forward to his 10th birthday.  But instead of presents, the Point Cook boy wants birthday cards – hundreds of them.  “He’s the type of kid who reads everything written on cards, even the maker’s printed words,” his mother, Natasha Moraes, says.
Rafael has neuroblastoma, a solid tumour cancer of the sympathetic nervous system. He was diagnosed in 2008 and, after a few years free of medical intervention, is undergoing regular chemotherapy and other treatments.
A Werribee childcare worker has organised a “card-a-thon” for the grade 4 Westbourne Grammar pupil.  His father, Domingoes Moraes, says the cards will fill his son with joy.  “This will cheer him up so much,” he said. “The idea of someone sending him a birthday card will make him feel special.”
Cards can be sent (before March 25) to PO Box 1617, Werribee, 3030
Here is the card I made for Rafael.  There is a bookmark inside the envelope with a couple of cute goggly eyed monsters.  Why not make or send a Card to Rafael also to brighten his day.

Happy Crafting,
