Breast Health Awareness Project, Block 6

graphic.bmpA Belated Happy Mothers Day to all you who are Mom’s!!! Today we feature our Much Loved Coordinator – Kathryn Ramirez – block for the Breast Health Project. Kathryn has done an outstanding job and I simply can’t say enough how much I appreciate her work. Visit her site Penelope’s Pride Quilts.

Now, there are 6 Gorgeous blocks to choose from – which one, or twelve, did you decide to make? 🙂

This part of the project is where you come in – We want to make and auction off enough quilts to make a great donation to a Breast Health Charity of Your choice! We can’t do this alone!

If you or your best friend, maybe your sister, mother, grandmother has been affected in some way by breast cancer, this is a way for you to fight back. Even if you haven’t been touched by breast cancer in your family or circle of friends, you still need to fight. And why not do it by doing what you do best? Quilting.

We would love to hear your stories. We’ll celebrate recovery with you. We’ll grieve the losses with you. We’ll be there to hold your hand – virtually – through the treatment process.

Whether you decide to make a block or not, post your story on your blog. Please take our graphic to display on your blog and let’s spread the word about our own little war against Breast Cancer. We want to focus on Breast Health, but we won’t ignore the fact that for many women, and some men too, focusing on the prevention is not an option. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if we could wipe out breast cancer in our lifetime? If they had the funds needed to research and come up with a cure or a vaccination or a prevention program, it could be a reality. This may not touch us, in our lifetime, but what about our daughters and granddaughters? Many times women won’t do things for themselves, but they will move heaven and earth to do for their children, so do it for yours, for the future of your family.
