Calling all knitters
This is a picture taken last summer of my sister Beth (left) and her best friend Dona. In this picture they are showing off their very first felted bags. They get together at a coffee shop every Monday to knit.
In November 2006, Dona was diagnosed with colon cancer. She did everything that the doctors suggested, including chemotherapy and was cancer free. A couple of weeks ago they found two spots on one of her lungs. She is going to Dallas this week to meet with an Oncologist who seems confident that they can remove these spots, unfortunately she will have to have chemotherapy again.
That's where you guys come in. I would be thrilled if anyone reading this would join me in making some chemo caps, or comfy socks, or anything else that might offer some comfort to someone having to endure chemotherapy...again.
Now for my thankfuls:
1. I am thankful for chemotherapy, even though the process is dreadful.
2. I am thankful for hazelnut flavored coffee.
3. I am thankful for sunny, warm Saturdays in March. (the high today in Tulsa is 73F/23C)
