365 days of nothing but HOPE

I mentioned before in a previous memoir about a woman named Marjie who is battling ALS, how she comes from a talented family. Marjies teenage niece took her love of drawing and made a calendar with her artwork in it, to sell and raise money for ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease). This is one of the nieces pictures that is in the calendar. The niece even started her own website called HopeheART.
