Breast cancer is a horror that can happen to any woman — and, by all accounts, learning that it has occurred is absolutely terrifying.  It is a diagnosis that is sure to turn a person’s world completely upside down. J Graham has learned that she has breast cancer — and we are here to let her know that internet friends around the country — even around the world — are with her in spirit and wishing her well.

 Community Quilt for J GrahamWe are going to put our messages of love and support into a colorful quilt that J Graham can take with her to treatment and which she she can curl up with at home anytime she needs some emotional support.  This blanket will be a tangible reminder that people care about her and that her health matters to a whole community of friends.  J Graham’s quilt will be our 165th.

What is a community quilt?  It is a quilt containing messages from you, transcribed by me in archival ink onto muslin.  My sister and I incorporate these messages into a colorful design, tailor made for the recipient.  Each quilt is unique and very personal.  They also have a strong vibe from all the words of love and respect.  Words have great power!  Believe me, they really do!  Leave a message in the comments below and I will {{{{hug}}}} you to let you know I have it noted.

It takes lots of time and material to make a community quilt and it is a living for me and my sister. If you would like to contribute toward the cost of this quilt,  here is a PayPal link — or message me for an address should you prefer a check.  $20/message is suggested by no worries if you cannot afford to donate.  We still want your message!  This is a crowdfunded thing and some always give more to cover messages for those who are short on funds.

Please note, if you leave a message in PayPal or somewhere other than the comments below, please Kos Mail me to make sure I pick it up.
