Meet a Patient

Meet the Brewer Family

I joined the Ashford Park Friends group the first year it started. As a busy working mom and small business owner, I had limited time to contribute. My favorite activity to be involved with was decorating mailboxes for the Mailbox Brigade. It brought out my crafty side and the mailboxes looked so beautiful.

In February of 2017, my three-year-old daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer. She relapsed six months later. Thanks largely to Children’s, she is currently doing well, back at school, and we take life one day at a time. Today, the mailboxes have so much more meaning to me personally. Not only do they make our neighborhood festive, but they are a constant reminder of support. I drive through the neighborhood thinking “thank you, thank you, thank you” as I pass each mailbox.


I thank each of you for purchasing a mailbox and each of you who volunteer to decorate them. Don’t forget they make great gifts! Supporting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta means the world to our family. Thank you for supporting and contributing to the hospital that gave us our daughter back and continues to care for her.
