Random Act of Kindness/Mail Art Opportunity

This is from a friend in Maine:  
I have a special request for my brother-in-law. The Reader's Digest version is that he suddenly couldn't breathe last month and went into the hospital for a couple of weeks while they had him on a ventilator and steroids to calm down inflammation in his lungs. He's had all kinds of tests done and they're still not sure what it is. They're guessing some kind of connective tissue disease. He's back home now, still on oxygen and steroids, but it will be a long slow recovery. His spirits are down and it's depressing being in bed all the time, not knowing what it was or if it will come back, and he has some other health concerns too etc. He's still very weak from the lack of oxygen. They said it would take 5 days to recover from each day he was in the hospital, so that's something like 3 months!

If anyone would like to send him "Hang in There", positive energy, inspiring, hoping to brighten your day type messages, I'm sure they would be appreciated. Here is his address:

Ed Hamlin

Southwest Harbor, ME 04679
