Laughter - It Does a Body Good

Our good friend Marcia had been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for many years. Recently, she was informed that the drugs meant to help her had taken a terrible toll on her kidneys. She goes to the hospital for lots of tests.

While talking to her on the phone one day, she asked Marty to create a design that would liven the situation and give the staff a good laugh at the same time. The result was Maria's Giggle. The moment the hosptial staff saw the design they started laughing and the tension of the atmosphere immediately disappeared. Marcia reported that people were smiling, giggling, snickering and all-in-all just in a more relaxed and joyful attitude.

Everyone who has seen the design claim that it represents a multitude of illnesses that the women in their families have under gone. Face it ladies, we all have to be heroes and super fighters to win our personal battles.

We believe that Marcia's Giggle, as tacky as it is, still will inspire laughter and faith in one's strenght in whatever battle we have to fight.

Marcia's Giggle (M-147) is so new that we do not have a picture to show you. As soon as we have a photo, we will add it to this blog and our website http://www.gimmies.net/
