    Friends, In the 11 years we have had this site I don't think I have ever really asked for a personal request from the forum for anything material. We have asked for your prayers and good wishes on many occasions but I have a need tonight....

    Here is a thread that I started just about 9 years ago http://www.hayabusa.org/forum/random-thoughts/3429-away-board.html

    Here is where I ask you all for a favor, a little time and maybe a few cents..

    My neice is very limited in her mobility and she stays home 90% of the time because she is in an electric wheelchair and she has to have someone else control it because of her injuries. She can't talk but knows sign language, her movement is very slow so it takes some time for her to spell out or let us know what she needs. She is normally in a wheel chair or in her hospital bed. My sister gives her physical therapy every day and she is healthy but very broken... Mentally Lindsay is as smart as ever, she remembers everything from her childhood except about 3 months before the accident and the time she was in the hospital and in a COMA. She goes to church all the time, every time the doors are open it's good for her soul and it get's her around people that love and care for her.

    Tonight my sister posted on Facebook that Lindsay was very upset and sad today because she said no one knows her and she has been forgotten. While all of her friends have grown up and moved on to college and marriage she still sits at home never really replacing those friends with new ones... It's hard to make friends at home in a wheelchair.

    I ask you all, please take a few minutes and help me make a very special young lady feel like she has people that remember her. I ask you to send a note or a card to her... Let her know that you are out there and you will think of her often, let her know that you know her uncle Doug and that he loves her very much..... Just a quick note on a piece of paper to a young lady who in a split second had her life rearranged..... A stamp and a note is all I ask of you, please help me with this....

    Here is an address that you can send a letter to...

    Lindsay Rogers
    PO box 162
    Newcastle, Oklahoma 73065

    I know it seems insignificant but to a young lady that has no real outside contact.... This could be a huge event for her.......

    My goal is to flood her with love and kindness.....

    thanks....

    Cap......

    will be sending some out also :thumbsup:

    What would be great is if about 30-60 people were to send a couple of cards a month, this way she would be getting a card or 2 every day :cheerleader:

    mrsBW will handle the paper card. I don't get away that much, so I started filling her FB inbox.

    Man a crayon and a piece of paper can change a life! Lindsay doesn't have a lot to do at home, she watches a lot of TV and we try to play games with her but we can't be there all the time... Because of her physical problems (she has paralysis on her left side and she has a traumatic brain injury) she doesn't move very fast... opening a card could take her a few minutes to open it and then another few minutes to read it.... It would be something for her to do as well as give her something to look forward to and be happy about...

    thank you all...

    Doug, it broke my heart to read your post, and I think it's a wonderful thing you are doing for her. I pray that her spirit is lifted.
