A reader sent this Horse&Rider story to me. It was written by a 12 year-old girl, Mary Homicz, an accomplished endurance rider.
The story was short so I read it.
At the end, I burst into tears.
And then I immediately sent a card to the address at the bottom of the story. Mary Homicz, P.O. Box 581, Weaverville, CA 96093
I think you might, too.
Let’s see how many cards we can send to this brave little horse lover, shall we?!
HERE IS THE STORY:
HERE IS THE TOUGH PART… the addendum written by Horse&Rider. Can we cheer her during her treatment?
Mary Homicz lives in Junction City, California, with her mom and dad; brother, Jimmy; two horses; and three ponies. Their 11-acre farm is near the Trinity Alps Wilderness. At press time, Mary had just been diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer); her mother says Mary would love to receive letters from fellow equestrians to cheer her during treatment (P.O. Box 581, Weaverville, CA 96093).
