Heroes Helping Heroes!

I am just blown away by the response I received from my post yesterday asking for volunteers to help make a quilt for the Heroes Foundation silent auction to raise money for cancer!  My heart is definitely feeling warm and fuzzy right now! 



In less than 24 hours, 30 amazing women stepped up to help with this quilt.  Every one of these people have been touched by cancer in one way or another.  Many have family/friends who have had cancer, some are survivors themselves, and one is currently battling (and kicking it's butt) right now.

If you know anyone who would like to help, please have them send me a note in the comment section below.  Also if anyone has something they'd like to donate to the silent auction, please let me know that as well.

Thanks again ladies!  You are truly incredible!

  8. If you still need people then I'm happy to help. My cousins wife is currently battling breast cancer, she is only 30. She is having to fly to Germany every week for treatment and it is costing nearly £2000 a week!

  11. Did you get all the blocks you needed? My mother and I would gladly contribute. We lost my grandfather January 9, 2011, to pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed December 9 of 2010 and fought hard for that one month.

  12. Do you need more blocks? I just found this when I stumbled across Terri's (The Quilted Fox) blog. I'd love to help, if you have room! My FIL lost his battle with leukemia in 2002 - we miss him so much. debra_J_brown@hotmail.com
