EDIT: the original OP is below, but here's the info as presented on the local news website so you know it's legit and can get more info: 'A bit of sunshine': P.E.I. man asks for cards to brighten long hospital stay "We didn't know if he was going to make it," said his wife Lori MacLean. "We're always together. We're never apart unless one of us is at work, or off doing something else. We're always together. So it's rough." That's when MacLean told Lori that he'd like put out a request for pictures and cards to put up in his room — not just from friends and family in P.E.I., but anywhere in the world. ...they're hoping Garfield's request reaches as many people as possible. "He just wants the interaction. You can't have too many visitors when you're in the I.C.U.," Lori said. The MacLeans said they look forward to any help brightening up the hospital room. "It's just the fact people are taking their time out of their busy schedule to send a bit of sunshine," Lori said. "It would just brighten all our days." So, that's the situation, its not about me, and it's not an appeal for money. My oldest friend is in the hospital; he's very sick and they don't know when he will be released. He's overcome some huge obstacles in his life, polio, muscular dystrophy, double curvature of the spine, and the list goes on but this time he's getting his ass kicked and he could use your support. As crooked as his spine is he's the most stand up guy I've ever known. He's literally that one guy everyone knows and about whom no one ever has anything negative to say. More recently, diverticulitus, the same disease that floored Brock Lesnar, took his mobility away and he was confined to a wheel chair. Pneumonia took away even that bit of independence. Getting to the point, his hospital room doesn't have a window. He and his wife are asking anyone at all to just send a post card from some place with a nice view or scene. Ideally, we'd like to see post cards from all over the world. Wadda ya say, peeps? Help out a really great guy (not me) and make his days in the hospital a little less miserable? They're off to a good start, but I know if it takes hold here we could really make a difference and brighten his day. You can mail them to: Garfield (Lori) MacLean P.O.
