PORTAGE, Mich. -- A West Michigan woman who wanted homemade cards for her birthday received hundreds after her sister posted a request for them on social media.
FOX 17 first told you about Missy Engberts in June. She was diagnosed with epilepsy as a child and doctors said she wouldn't live to see her teenage years. This year, she celebrated her 50th birthday.
She wanted very little for her birthday party: a basic food spread, a pool party and, most of all, homemade cards. Engberts makes homemade cards herself; drawing and coloring is therapeutic for her.
Her sister, Bobbie Leach, posted a request on social media asking people to make cards for her sister.
