Fellow Tablet MVP Rob Bushway has a wonderful daughter named Maggie who is in the hospital having some pretty serious surgery due to brain cancer.  Maggie is a sweet and brave little girl who can use your help to get well.  The hospital in St. Louis has a program for patients on their web site where you can send Get Well ecards for Maggie and Dad Rob wants to cover the walls in her room with these cards so she can read them and have a constant reminder how many people are praying for her rapid recovery.  So far she has received over 200 cards but I know we can do better than that. 

I am asking everyone to go to the hospital’s web site and send a card to Maggie so we can get all those walls covered from floor to ceiling.  Maggie’s doctor is so impressed with the number of cards she’s received so far that he has promised to bring Maggie a special gift if all the walls are covered by Wednesday.  Please send a card and if you have a blog post this and ask your readers to do the same.  Let’s do all we can in our small way to brighten this special girl’s hospital stay.  Be sure and put “Cards for Maggie” somewhere in your blog post so Google will pick them all up.

All ecards should be sent to Maggie Bushway.  Rob is posting current status of Maggie’s condition and some photos from the hospital on Maggie’s web page.  Thank you.

  1. Sent mine over, and will be adding it to my blog shortly. Thanks for bringing this to our attention jk. And major props to the hospital for having something available sonline that’s so easy to do and can make such a big difference.

  2. JK, PLEASE mention Maggie on your next web podcast (and when is it, by the way?). Maybe the word will get passed up the chain of command at Microsoft (Bob Bushway is a MVP, after all). More and more people there have to get on Maggie’s case. Charity begins at home, as they say.

  3. Thanks for pushing this out to a wider audience.
