The Billboard Saga continues

This is probably the last time I'll be mentioning "the billboard" (no promises, of course). Apparently the font is so small that even people who know an Ellie fighting a brain tumor are confused about who is really on the sign. I learned this through Ellie W's caring bridge site today.

The billboard, it turns out, is actually an ad for St. Jude Children's Hospital and the child is Ellie Bouchard. She's been their poster child recently and has been featured in an ad with Jennifer Aniston and interviewed on Larry King's show. Like the other Ellie, she's also darling and is fighting bravely. Happily for her though, Ellie B's tumor has a much better prognosis.

Wouldn't it all be so much simpler if they'd just make a billboard you can read? But then, I guess I never would have heard of Ellie W. And probably neither would you. Now that we do know, go over and read her post for today. They could really use your prayers.
