I Wish You Were Here Project

I Wish You Were Here Project
Tanya Houghton has started a beautiful art project for her mother Marianne, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer three years ago and was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

The idea is really simple: Send a postcard to Marianne from wherever you are. Tell her three of your favourite things about the place where you live. Put a stamp on it and send it. This is how Marianne will get to travel the world.

If you’d like to send Marianne a postcard jump over here.

    Oh I knew that horrible time so well, my mum passed away with 59 on that damned cancer! I’ll send a postcard and will share it!
