    Default A sick little boy needs your help

    I want to tell you about a sick little boy name Bradlee T. He likes to be called "Fireman Bradlee" the Urbana, Illinois Fire Department has "Adopted" him. He even has his own little firesuit with his last name on it. When Bradlee heard about the 911 tradegy he had his Mom send his "love quilt" to New York so that the Firemen could feel safe. (It always made him feel safe) Isn't that the sweetest thing? His Mom would like to make him another quilt. It was made with different patches from several Fire Stations Would you please send him a patch? You can e-mail me for his address. deb12c@yahoo.com
    Thank you for your time and may God Bless you and keep you safe.
    Thank you for keeping us all safe.

    Smile Re: Bradlee

    Thank you for introducing Bradlee to us. I hope your post brings happy results!

    I hope you do not mind if I add the following url, which provides more information about Bradlee. Firefighters hold a special place in this child's life.

    Good luck and God Bless!

    Cool

    This is a wonderful thing that your Fire Department is doing for this child. I work at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and we have children here that never have family come and visit or care for them. But Bradlee was luckey enough to be "adopted" by the biggest family of all, the Firefighting Family. Thankyou Debbie for bring him to our attention

    P.S. my e-mail is on the way

    Thanks for telling us about this. Maybe you can send some pictures of the quilt when it's finished. I'll be sure to send a patch from here to help out.

    Once again thank you for introducing Bradlee to us. I have 12 depts within my immediate vacinity, before I send off the patches I currently have, I am going to try to get some from the rest of the depts.

    What a great idea his mom had. Please do post pics of it when it's finished.

    Default Patches for Bradlee

    Dear Debbie,

    Thank you for introducing us to Fireman Bradlee. I was so humbled and blessed by your letter requesting patches for him. I believe Guys will agree this is what forums are all about, "helping each other, and working as a team!"

    It's these little "Warrior's" like Bradlee that makes us big "Warrior's" kneel and look up! May God Richly Bless You! Just One of many "Prayer Warrior's" that's praying for Bradlee !

    Love & Prayers

    I don't want to sound like a broken record, but the out pouring of love I have seen you all send to Bradlee really touches me. You all are FANTASTIC!!!!!!! Pat yourselves on the back. And not just for this, for everything you do on a daily basis.
    God Bless you all and keep you safe.

    Debbie

    Cool Bradlee


    I am so glad I got to see Bradlee's home page and his Angel friends. That was awesome. I will also be sending you some patches as soon as I can get them together. Stay strong and my Prayers are with you.

    I wanted to share some very good news with you about Bradlee. I have been trying to get a Wish Foundation to grant his wish to go to Disney World for about a year. None of them want to help because his illness doesn't have a "name" he has a Undiagnosed Genetic Disease
    GOOD NEWS!!!! we found one that is going to send him and his family. The Starlight Foundation!!!
