December 17, 2017
ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas woman is requesting Christmas cards for her two children mourning the loss of their baby brother who died earlier this year.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Dawn Shannon of Arkansas City posted on Facebook that her children Alexa and Henry "are having a really hard time dealing with the loss of their sweet baby brother Tucker, and Christmas is going to be so difficult without him."
Tucker Shannon was 7 months old when he died on Sept. 29. He had Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, a rare condition that affects a person's kidneys, mobility and speech.
Dawn Shannon encourages anyone who can to send Christmas cards to Alexa and Henry "to send them a little bit of love." She included in her Facebook post a mailing address to send cards to.
