First, if you know me, you know I am an avid fiber fanatic. Not the fiber you eat, but fiber from animals, such as alpacas, that you can spin with a spinning wheel, or knit or weave into beautiful garments and objects. Just check out my website, Facebook Site & Farm Page, or Ravelry site, and this becomes evident! One of the well-known knit designers, Cat Bordhi is supporting cancer in her efforts with her book, The Art of Felfs (felted footwear for families). Cat is donating 100% of the book’s and pattern’s income to the research lab of Dr. David Krag at the University of Vermont Medical School because she believes the cancer research he is doing will replace chemotherapy not that far in the future. As anyone knows who has been through chemotherapy, and especially me who has had heart issues most likely contributed to by chemo, this is most exciting research. Read all about Dr. David Krag, his research and past accomplishments, and Felfs, on the link above.
My name is Allison Kent and I am a student at Lehigh University. I am in a product development class and am in the process of reaching out to those familiar with breast cancer who may be able to take a few minutes to answer a quick survey for us. My team is hoping to develop a product to help support and organize Jackson Pratt drains to help make recovery easier and less painful. Would you be willing to possibly take our quick survey, send it to your your friends or family, and possibly even post it to your blog? We are hoping to get as many responses from those familiar with the recovery process to make our product most useful and practical.
Here is the link to our survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KVGQHDB. Thank you for your help!
So, these are my public service announcements for the moment. My best to you all, especially those recently diagnosed, or continuing to fight the fight against breast cancer, or any cancer. Please try to take it one day at a time. All you can do is put one foot in front of the other, and go at your own speed. God Bless...
AND now the Cardiomyopathy warrior!!!
