Pink

Within this past month, my aunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer, had surgery, recovered, and also traveled to Disneyland.


Today is the day, she starts her chemotherapy.



I was told once, by a friend who went through chemo, that she would often get super cold during her treatments. When I found out that my aunt was going to go through chemo, I decided that she needed a snuggly blankie in case she experienced this "getting cold" bit too. Not only is pink the "color" for breast cancer awareness, it's her favorite color too!



With all these new and unexpected changes in her life, she recently shared this in an email:


I feel very much at peace and know that God is in control of my life, whatever he has instore for me. One of my favorite verses is Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." That verse has helped me through a lot and continues to help me now. None of us know what lies ahead of us each day but we know God is in control and with His perfect timing we can have peace in that blessing.


God is good all the time. All the time, God is good.

My thoughts and prayers are with your aunt. I have fought cancer for the past 5 years and every time I have gone through the chemo treatments, I have felt like I would freeze and just crumble to pieces. My sister in law made me a special blanket just before I was diagnosed. I feel great comfort when I snuggle up in it. Knowing that I had the love and support of my family and my trust in God is what has gotten me through. I am currently 1 year 7 months cancer free.

I love the blanket you made for your aunt. I am sure she will feel your love every time she cuddles up in it.

So sorry that your aunt has cancer and has to go through chemo. Your love for your aunt will help her get through the rough times. The blanket you made for her is so beautiful and looks so soft and cuddly. I am sure she will love it. My daughter has gone through chemo and she would get freezing cold. A lot of the patients would. I know that blanket you made will help comfort her.

Wishing your Aunt the very best, my mother is currently going through breast cancer/chemo treatments. It is a difficult time for all - but with strong faith all will be fine. There is power in prayer! Sometimes I think I must wear God out, so glad that he listens to us. The quilt is wonderful. Best wishes for a full recovery! Terri

I love, love, love this! My mom made me a flannel lap quilt many years ago and it's nearly thread bare. I still have those chenille squares that you gave me...I should make myself a new lap quilt {or give them to my mom and have her do it!} :-)
Hearing your aunt's heart is very inspiring. I can't imagine going through something so difficult w/o the Lord!

God bless your Auntie.... Praying she'll be all finished with the chemo soon and cancer free.

What a sweet and thoughtful gift for her. I know she'll be thrilled....and comforted by it during each treatment..... knowing you love her will help with her recovery, I'm sure.

Blessings,
