    Question Can I Count On A Lot Of You Incredible D.C. Members To Do This?

    Little Ali's birthday wish; How you can celebrate with her - KJAS.COM: Local News

    A Birthday Card and the cost of a stamp.

    Her birthday is September 9th.

    You can send cards addressed:

    Ali's Birthday
    P.O. Box 2586
    Jasper, TX 75951

    Turning 10 years old is a milestone. For some kids, it's the first time they reach double digits.
    Ali Najera's 10th birthday will be even more special, her family didn't know she'd make it to that young age.
    The 9-year old Jasper girl is battling a rare, incurable neurological disorder.

    This year, she has one wish for her birthday.

    "Mom, what if I turn 11, 12, 13, 14 or 15?" the 9-year old Jasper girl asked her mother, Tianna Morgan. "Well we hope you do," Morgan said.
    Ali's turning ten years old, a birthday her family wasn't sure she'd reach.

    She's battling a rare, progressive, incurable neurological disease.

    "A lot of kids don't actually make it to their tenth birthday with this disease," Morgan said. "Basically what it's doing is it's taking her control away from her to be able to control her own muscles."

    Morgan first noticed something wrong when Ali was young. Right after her daughter's 8th birthday, doctors discovered iron was accumulating in Ali's brain. Last year, doctors diagnosed her with neuroaxinal dystrophy.

    "We're gonna take it one day at a time and we're gonna live every day to the fullest with her," Morgan said.

    Wednesday, Ali played outside like many kids do, but she knows something sets her apart.

    "Because I'm in a wheelchair," Ali said.

    "Two weeks ago is when we found out that Ali would not be, she's not able to walk anymore," Morgan said.

    Even that can't keep a giant smile off the little girl's face.
    "I'm smiling," Ali said to her mother, pointing to her face.
    "Yeah you are, you've got a gorgeous smile, I love your smile," Morgan said to her.
    Ali's smile is what her mother said she'll miss most.

    Ali's disease will eventually take that away.

    "That's probably gonna be the hardest thing other then when the disease does kill her and we don't know, I guess the hardest part for us is not knowing when or anything like that," Morgan said.

    In a future filled with unknowns, there's one thing Ali is certain of.

    "Birthday cards," Ali said.
    "One of the biggest things that she's wanted, is she wants to receive cards from all over the world," Morgan said.
    Cards that will mark September 9, 2014, an extra special day.

    "We don't know if we'll see her 11th birthday, but so that's just one of those things we take day by day," Morgan said.

    Ali's birthday is a day Morgan said other kids usually don't celebrate with her.
    This year, it's a day marked by one wish, a birthday card.

    They still have stamps? I suppose I can figure it out.

    I'm in....as well as some other folks here locally.

    Hopefully we can all help swamp this cute little girl with B Day Cards.

    Before I went over to CVS to buy a card I printed the page...put some Scotch tape on it and stuck it above the Birthday card section at CVS.

    Sneaky huh?

    Many people steal things OUT....I stole that IN.

    I don't think anybody working there will remove it.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
