My little one, I was thinking of you today and wanted you to know, that never before today, did I fully understand what all you went through. My Mother is fighting for her life. You have given me new strength to tell my Mother some of your stories. God Bless You.

Hi Merel, My name is Eileen. I live with Leah, who works with your Mom. I just got to meet your Mom the other day, and she seems like a really nice lady. Her and I have been teasing Leah. (Have you met Leah yet? SHe's kinda crazy. My nieces and nephews call her "Cookie." I think that you and your sister should call her that, too!) I'll be thinking about you, and will stop back to visit your web site and see how you are doing.

Hey Merel: This is one cool web site. I work with your mom - -she is a little wacky, but very entertaining. Like the other day when I was walking down the hall, she went zipping past on roller blades! Does she do that at home too???

I will keep you informed of her antics.

Hi Merel! I love the pictures on your website. I'll have to show Delaney, especially the one of you dressed as a Princess. She loves everything princessy; I call the decoration theme of her bedroom, "Princess 'til you Puke." (Just kidding.)
Please let Ellie know that the "disco lamp" she sent for Delaney is still a huge it -- it has now made its way into our living room so she can have extra room to dance to Britney Spears!

Good luck this week; you'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Love,
Mary

and I reassured my conviction that I chose the right profession.

You have a spirit like I have never seen, ever before. You are
a beautiful young girl. I will pray for you, every night.

May God Bless You. Nico

Hey little one, I am a friend of your mom's friend, Melissa and
when she told me of your plight, my heart sank that instead
of playing and worrying about what color lip gloss to wear
you must worry about all kinds of other medical things.
Because I was crying, I think that you are very brave and
a remarkable example for all of us. Never ever take any
thing for granted, you don't know what is around the
corner. Merel, you are in my thoughts and in my prayers
I have added you to the prayer list at my church and I
am just so touched by your spirit. Much love to you
and may God bless you.
I read your entire page and I had to stop alot because I was

Merel-I am a co-worker with your mother. I know that you are not feeling very well today and Mommy had to take you to the hospital. I pray that things are going a lot better for you now. I know that Mommy will keep me posted-you are a VERY BRAVE young lady. This weekend is my grand daughter's second birthday. I know that you just had your 8th birthday and you went to Chicago. That is great. Keep up your spirits and I will continue to pray for you. God Bless You.

Little one,
I chat with your Mum in the BCSurvivor's room, I hear all about you and read about your courage, hope and strength. I think you are very brave, but also I think that sometimes, we know, I believe you know this, I heard about your dreams of your Uncle Bobby, and I think you know that he is your angel and I think you know that. I too believe in the angels and I know how you feel.
I think you are a beautiful little girl with a bright and long future.
Love and wishes, Ivy

Hello Merel.

I work with your dad at Computer Associates. I first heard about you and your fight, around the time you went to camp sunshine. Your dad explained the activities at the camp with big smiles. I'm looking forward to hearing about your next adventure. Until then I wish you love and strength.

Hi Merel,
What a good idea, such a guest book. Other times I didn't notice this, I jumped right away to the latest news.
Merel, you know my favorite life-sentence is: "Carpe Diem". This is Latin for the Dutch sentence "Pluk de dag". It means live from day to day and enjoy every day you get, you never know how the next day will be. Try to be glad with all nice things what happens on a day, like a hug from someone, although it can be sometimes very hard to see nice things.
Merel, you are a tough girl, also your Mom, Dad and Ellie are tough. You know, I think you will succeed in visiting Holland again.
Much love and many kisses and hugs from Lenie, Teun, Eline and Moniek. xxxxxxxx

Merel-heard the news about you having to be in the hospital. You are a very brave young lady. It is very important that you follow all instructions that are given to you by the medical personnel. Myself, along with everyone at the Task Force are praying for you. I will say a SPECIAL prayer for you when I pray for my grandchildren. Hope to see you real soon at the Task Force and if you or your family ever need anything-don't hesitate to contact me at 771-1757 or on my pager 590-2295.

Dear Merel,
I check your web page every 3 days for updates and new guest book signers, I am amazed at addresses :)

Have fun at Camp Sunshine, I think for Christmas, I will make a donation to Camp Sunshine, in place of buying everyone a present and donate it in their names.

I know you will beat this and you will once again be the happy little girl, I love hearing about in emails from your Mom.
Just remember, there are alot of people who love you and are praying for you. I will be home in January, for good and we will go for ice cream at the zoo !

Lots of Love, Kelly

Hello Merel,

During the preparations for CHILD-II (in fact a reunion
for former Calslaan 34 residents, the flat your Daddy
resided on during his study period at Twente University)
the message of you being diagnosed with cancer came
across. This shocked us all, and we decided to collect
as many 'sunshines' for you as people could spare.
Henriette has informed Ron about this already, I'm sure.

We all hope you'll fight and win this battle.
