"I really miss my Dad. He is my angel. He’s always been there for me. I want to let him know that I love him and I miss him.”

BACKGROUND: On 4/7/2015, Miracle Messages' volunteer storyteller Jason Purdy met Lannie through the Downtown Streets Team. Lannie has been homeless since age 13, and had been sleeping in a truck with her son and husband until recently when DST helped her get a place. Her breast cancer is now in remission. She is grateful to DST, Sunnyvale Community Services, Catholic Charities, and the Sunnyvale Armory for helping her with services.
