A brighter future lies ahead...
Someday we will wake up to a world
where the words, "You have cancer"
do not send people into a panic.
I'd like to do what I can to help
make leukemia and lymphoma treatable,
by supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
My husband is an only child,
but he's had a best friend, Dan Chianese,
for over 50 years. They are like brothers.
"Dan the Man" was diagnosed with leukemia
two years ago.
Dan is fighting back as a candidate for the
One dollar equals one vote, from now until May 7, 2016.
The Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a spirited fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants build fundraising teams to compete for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. They raise funds for LLS blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The titles are awarded to the man and woman in each community who raises the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles. You can support their efforts by donating to or joining their campaigns, because everyone wins when cancer loses!
In Dan's honor,
I designed the Mr. Sunshine mini quilt.
Dan lives in Florida now,
so I decided to put some sunglasses onto
a sunburst design.
I will donate all of the sales of this pattern from now
through May 7, 2016 to Dan The Man's campaign for Man of the Year.
The future is so bright that
even the SUN needs sunglasses!
Linking up to Bits N Bobs Design Board Monday!
