Quilt With Us

The gift you don't ever want to make or give

Over the holidays, our good friend was diagnosed with breast cancer (33yrs. old) She had pain and her doctor wanted to give her antibiotics and she said no I want a biopsy. She had mastitis in the past and knew this was different. She saved her own life by knowing her body. They are waiting for the genetic testing to come back to see how much surgery this will involve. Luckily she was clean in the lymph nodes. She will undergo chemo regardless. I made pillowcases to fit a 12x18 pillow and a lap quilt to take to chemo treatments.

It's seems that everyday you hear that someone is diagnosed with cancer. They have made great strides, but we need to find that gene and resolve this disease.

Your gifts are wonderful and will be a blessing to your friend.  Our church has a new Sewing Ministry and we are making healing pillows for folks who have had or will be having surgery.  The pillow is most helpful for breast issues, as gals are using the pillows in the car for seat belt protection.

Best wishes for your friend. I have a friend who is still fighting breast cancer--now it must be over 15 years. Never give up.

You are always so thoughtful, Pam.  Those gifts will be appreciated, as well as love involved with making them.  My DIL was also diagnosed at 33.  Sadly, hers is metastatic.  She will always be fighting, but many strides are being made in keeping this horrible cancer somewhat under control.  We have to keep in mind, that the happy endings with this cancer are happening more and more, but we cannot stop searching.  Our grands, and great grands need us all to help continue this fight to end all types of cancers.

Something personal from a good friend to take to Chemo is their security blanket and I know that she will take it with her everywhere. I also have a friend that was diagnosed with Leukemia, plus having a tumor near her heart and one near her shoulder. She received a Chemo treatment everyday for 4 weeks in the hospital and found out it didn't help. Then they upped the Chemo, which wipes her out. Her lap quilt has been so special to her and she keeps it with her. We don't know what will be next, but she is in God's hands.

Very lovely gifts.  It just seems like more & more younger women are being diagnosed with this horrible disease.  I think I told you a while back that my 44 yr old DIL has been dealing with this same disease.  She is finished with her chemo & is now doing the radiation.  She is trying to come to grips with whether or not to have her ovaries removed or opt for a treatment that will take 5 yrs.  I know what I would do if I was in that same situation, but it is a very personal choice that every woman has to make on her own.
