In 2006, it was estimated 35,070 new cases of leukemia would be reported.

Donations made to organizations like the American Cancer Society help fund research for detection, treatment and prevention of all forms of cancer. They also provide support services to cancer victims and their families.

This letterbox is planted in honor of all who have been diagnosed with leukemia, and those who love them.

Tucked away at the west end of St. Mary's Road is the St. Mary's Cemetery. Enter the driveway at the east entrance and travel toward the rear of the cemetery. At the 2nd side road turn right. The Dennis and Ellen Duggin headstone will be on your left. Straight ahead, in the middle of the intersection is a crypt. Park there.

Look left and see the tall, lone, ragged evergreen. Walking counterclockwise around the tree, look chest- or shoulder high in a fissure for the box.

To leave, take a right, then drive back toward the west entrance. Pause at the Seeber monument and reflect on God's gift of redemption through Christ.

This is a sacred place, so please be respectful and as unobtrusive as possible in retrieving and replacing the box. Please use orange ink if possible as that color denotes leukemia.
