Some of you remember MaKenzie, the little unknown cancer patient I stitched the zebra print ornament for. The little angel went to heaven this morning at 3:00am. Her little body just could not hold her spirit anymore and she is now playing with the angels. A memorial service will be held on Monday and a funeral on Tuesday. Please keep her Mother, brother and family and friends in your prayers, as well as the precious hospice workers that helped her these past months. Here is a pic of her luminaria from Relay last Saturday.
What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
