MSSPENTYOUTH QUILT #003
linkage1951: We're at NetRoots Nation, and it's my pleasure to talk to one of the Community Quilt recipients. Can you introduce yourself to our viewers?
msspentyouth: Sure. My name is Kim Yeman (sp?). On Daily Kos, I'm also known as MsSpentYouth. I've been blogging on Daily Kos for oh, many, many a year. Four years ago, just a couple days before I went to a NetRoots Nation Convention in Austin, I believe, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and it's non-cancerous, and it's slow growing, but it's inoperable because of some consequent issues, because I like to be difficult, you know. I'm a true troublemaker.
PEREGRINE KATE QUILT #60
linkage1951: We're at NetRoots Nation 13 in San Jose, and this is my opportunity to interview one of the Community Quilt recipients. Can you introduce yourself and talk a bit about your Community Quilt.
peregrin kate: My name on Daily Kos is Peregrine Kate. The quilt was, for me, a singular blessing. I had been on Daily Kos as a diarist for only a very short period of time after lurking for many years. I'd written, maybe, two, three, four diaries at the most when I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January of 2011. Unfortunately for me, the diagnoses kept getting worse and worse.
