Community Quilts are a way of sharing care, compassion and support for community members who are facing illness or other hardships.
  1. Our beloved friend, Dixiecollie, is in treatment for cancer.  She is starting a chemo drug regime that will likely last for over a year.  Dixiecollie will be taking a very toxic drug, three weeks on, one week to rest from it, possibly for as long as fifteen months.  It will be very harsh and she is likely to feel many shades of lousy but it is what she needs to do to be well.

    Let’s help her get through this necessary treatment with messages of love and support she can wrap up in.  Let’s make her a community quilt to remind her of the deep respect, love and gratitude her friends

    Messages are complete but we are still short $274 in funding for this quilt (I will keep thesis number updated).

It is always hard to see people we love go through something hard and extremely painful.  A well known visitor to the Pootie diaries and very good friend to many here, jwinIL14, has just been diagnosed with lung cancer.  He is scheduled to have surgery on Sept. 25, certain tests allowing.  He is hoping they will have to remove less tissue rather than more… Regardless, it will be a very major surgery.

    Let’s make jwin14IL a colorful blanket full of loving messages that he can take with him to the hospital, something to remind him of how many people
