|My sister, Dawn, deriving comfort from|
the quilt I made especially for her to use
while undergoing chemotherapy.
My husband I have just returned from a trip to Tucson, AZ. The purpose of the trip was to advocate for my aunt. She recently turned 91, struggles with Parkinson's Disease and its companion, Lewy Body Dementia. I have been my aunt's guardian and health advocate ever since she was diagnosed with LBD in December 2006. Between her age and her illness she has done remarkably well these past eight years. I feel very fortunate that her day to day needs are met by an excellent team of care takers and medical staff. They do a wonderful job of keeping me informed, as well. Still there is nothing like a face to face visit to truly understand what is going on and what can and can not be done to help.

granddaughter, McKenna, sporting
a tattoo she commissioned in honor
of her nana. The roses are Dawn's
favorite purple and the blue ribbon is
the symbol for colon cancer.

If you know of an organization not on this list that provides comfort quilts please let me know in the comments section of the blog.
In this season of giving that is followed immediately by a time to set your intention for the new year, why not commit to making at least one quilt in 2015 for an organization that touches your heart.
