What would you say if I asked the question of What do you think a 5 year old would want for Christmas? You probably would think of something that a 5 year old that was near to you would want...

Now what if I posted the same question but added that a certain 5 year old said all she wanted for Christmas was to see how many Christmas cards she could get...

This is the true story of a 5-yr old Lititz, PA girl, Hannah Garman, who was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor. She has been given 12 weeks to live and is currently in her 8th week. She was going to be the flower girl at a wedding in May, but was diagnosed a week after we asked her to be the flower girl. This is especially sad because her mother died 2 yrs ago from breast cancer.

Right now she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bed and cannot really do anything or play with the gifts she is getting from people, but she LOVES getting cards - she has gotten so many from people she does not know and just loves to have grandma read about the people who send them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just filled with cards.

When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see how many Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groups where children are making her cards. People are including pictures so she can see who it is that is sending her the card.

This was posted in a Local forum on Lancasterfire.com. I am proud to say that I provide Emergency Medical Services with this community of people. They rallied together in less than a week to deliver cards to this young girl. I do not recall an official count as to how many were delivered, but the Lancaster County Emergency Services made a caravan of Emergency Vehicles to deliver cards to this girl. 58 pieces of Fire Apparatus, 8 EMS vehicles, and multiple Police agencies got their crews together to deliver these cards.

If you would like to help with her wish, you can send a card to her at:
Hannah Garman
704 Orchard Rd
Lititz, PA 17543
