Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (Idaho Falls, ID)

Today my good Friend Lisa Bloxham delivered 200 books to EIRMC. I’m so thankful to her for helping us out.

Last year she was a huge support too, even though she lived in Oklahoma. Her family hasn’t had the easiest time of it in the past few years. Their little girl Gracie was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (cancer) when she was 3. Gracie is now 6 years old, in remission & doing great.

Lisa & I were friends in High School but not close friends, when heartache is involved it’s amazing how you bond and grow unexpected friendships that will last forever.

While Gracie’s parents were worrying about losing her everyday, I was grieving the loss of my Gabie and we became a support to one another on Facebook. It was never more than an encouraging remark from time to time but it always meant the world to me, and I’m glad I was able to reciprocate.

Last year Lisa sent us 2 large boxes of books in the mail and some money to buy books they were greatly appreciated. This last year The Bloxham family moved to Ammon, ID and I was so excited that they were close enough to come to our Book Drive Cleaning day. Then Lisa was willing to deliver the books to EIRMC since they are close to it and her husband is now an ER Doctor there. If you want to read more about Amazing Gracie’s story go here.

I got an email from Holly and she said they are currently treating 16 Pediatric patients and they are so excited to have books for them. That’s GREAT!!

Thank You Lisa!!
