Card Drive and Fundraiser for Luke! Please spread the word!

This sweet little boy needs your help!

Pray for Luke

From  Stamp and Create owner Lacey Solving:

I posted before about my sweet little friend Luke. Luke was Ryan’s best friend and our neighbor across the street when we lived in Jacksonville. He moved across the street when he was only 8 months old and Ryan was only 12 months old. They played together almost every day until we moved a year and a half ago.

On New Year’s Eve, Luke suffered a 30 minute seizure as a result of Spinal Meningitis.

He is now on a long journey of treatments and therapy to fight the swelling on his brain and to regain his movement and speech.

His wonderful mother Brandi has created a blog to document his journey towards healing as well as a way to update his progress to family and friends.

You can read about how it happened on the opening page.

You can read updates on each day’s treatments on the Updates Page.

For the most recent posts, you will click on the largest page number at the bottom of the page (the blog shows the posts in chronological order, not with the most recent post first).

First, please pray for Luke, his mother Brandi, his father Magnus, his younger brother Abram, his doctor Dr. Salehi, as well as all of this other doctor’s, nurses, therapists, and technicians. Please pray for movement on his left side, control of his movement on his right side, speech and total healing.

Second, please feel free to share this with anyone you know who is willing to pray for an adorable almost 6 year old boy!!

Third, I am collecting cards for Luke to send to him. I hope to be able to bring a smile to his face and to let him know that people are praying for him ALL OVER THE WORLD!!

For each card received, you will receive a special Wags ‘n Whiskers digital stamp – you can not purchase this stamp (It is an edited version of Ansley’s Surprise – yes, you can do this yourself if you own the digital version of Ansley’s Surprise. But I wanted to give you something for sending a card to Luke).

Luke will be 6 years old next month (Feb 16th). He plays the violin, loves super heros, soccer, and Star Wars.

A “Get Well Card”, Birthday Card, or a funny card would all be perfect – just please make it age appropriate for a 6 year old boy.

To ensure you receive your free digital stamp, please email me at [email protected] with your email address so I can send you the digi once the card arrives.

Also, when you sign your name to your card, please include where you are from so Luke knows how far the card travelled just for him!!

Thank you so much for your willingness to pray for Luke!! And thank you in advance for sending a card to help brighten his day!!


Stamp and Create has purchased a special image called “Little Luke” as a fundraiser for Luke and his family (Luke likes Star Wars which is why I chose this image)…

100% of the sale of this digital stamp will be donated to Luke’s family to help with medical bills and travel expenses for his treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The image can be purchased –> HERE
