What’s very close to my heart are my Pink Blankets of Hope created for Cancer Patients, especially those with Breast Cancer, to keep them warm during their treatments, traveling to and from appointments and for those chills at home.
Why is this so important to Me?
I am 3 1/2 year Breast Cancer Survivor. Also, I’ve lost one of my sisters to what initially began as breast cancer. Plus, my husband was taken by a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
I’ve been in the fight against cancer and know, not only how appreciative I was as a cancer patient to have people visit me and encourage me during the entire ordeal, but also how important it is to take joy in the small things that can make you happy during that time – like a simple, warm blanket made of beautiful colors from someone who put love into it!
Why are They Called “Blankets of Hope“?
Well, since I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, what better encouragement is it to someone with breast cancer, or any other type of cancer, than from a cancer survivor!
Plus, the afghans created for the Blankets of Hope line are all made with pink yarn – some are completely pink, some simply have pink in them because the Pink Ribbon is the symbol for Breast Cancer – let’s make it a symbol of Hope & Love too!
Every single afghan is made with love by yours truly!
You may simply purchase an Afghan I’ve already created or you can order a blanket in whatever color(s) you desire.
* Please Note: I love to make afghans with beautiful, vibrant colors – i.e. It’s difficult for my eyes to make an afghan in all black, for example.
