It has been a long road to this final day of the “We Support You” blog hop. There have been many thoughtful creations and heartfelt stories of those who have suffered lost and survived cancer. There is always more that we all can do to support this deadly disease.
Before I get started I would like to thank Madame Samm and Pat for a great hop. They have brought all who have been following this hop more aware of cancer and the people it effects. In other word they have put a face to it.
I am dedicating this blog and my quilt to a co-work and friend Tracy, better known by friends and family as TraciePositive. She always has a positive attitude even when things are not very bright. Surviving is her family’s motto. She wrote this piece for me.
Living with family/friends with Breast Cancer who have survived this BATTLE
My cousin/sister Angela Minor is a fighter, this year she will be a 6 year survivor. When she told me she had this disease, it made me sick to my stomach and I don’t know why. I questioned GOD and he said to me that this is the devils work, but I am the HIGHEST HEALER and we are going to work this out together. He did just that and removed the cancer and she is a survivor still standing strong. My Aunt Barbara-Ann is also a fighter, this year it will be 4 years for her. She has not complained, not one time, she took into consideration what the doctors told her she needed to do and did it. She told me that she and GOD had this, and if her niece Angie could go through this and fight and become a survivor she knew she could do the same thing, she is a fighter who survived this terrible disease. Aunt Barbara-Ann’s daughter, Darlisa was diagnosed about 4 months ago. She told the doctors, if my cousin and mother can beat this battle she knew it would not stop her. She had surgery on Feb. 2, 2015 and is doing well. Now, tell me I don’t have 3 STRONG WOMAN.
In order to survive this disease called cancer you have to have a hell of a team. You got to have GOD, loving and caring family and friends to keep you fighting. These three ladies had this team and much more. They had faith and they were determine to fight, they never gave up.
There is so much we have done to support our love ones who have survived the battle of cancer and those who have lost the battle to this terrible disease. We have done fish fries, block parties, bus trips and we even do the AVON walk for cancer every year. So to show our support for the survivors and for the survivors that fought but lost the battle with cancer we went as far as creating our own logo/slogan.
I thank you Tracie, for your most encouraging story of faith, family and courage. “We Support You”, and all of the families that might suffer from this most deadly disease.
In my support to you and my second family, I dedicate this quilt to you. Stand Strong and Surviving.
Before I show you my unfinished quilt, I must tell you that I left my camera at work. No one in this house has a camera but me. So the pictures are a little crappie since I had to use my cell phone. I tried to spruce them up with some editing, but crappie is crappie.
The bra pattern was created by Madame Samm and you can purchase The "We Support You" Friendship Quilt Pattern for $12.00 by emailing Madame Samm directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
