4 Patches 4 Hope

This is my friend Regina. She lost her mother earlier this year after a hard-fought battle with cancer. To honor her mom and help raise funds for the fight against cancer, she has come up with "4 Patches 4 Hope". The concept is simple. Make a 4-patch block & send it to Regina. She'll take the 4-patches and assemble them into comfort quilts in honor of her mom and donate it to 2 different medical facilities (I believe one is local to her and the other treated her mom, but don't quote me).

She's also asking that if you send a 4-patch, that you make a small donation ($4) to the American Cancer Society. Of course, you're free to donate more than $4 or donate $4 even if you're not sending a 4-patch.

Please consider helping her. Share this on your blog. Send a block. Make a donation!

Thanks so much Becca - you are correct - one of the treatment centers is the one where Mom was, and the other has treated both my neighbors and a few other friends here in NY. There are unfortunately so many places these could go - I just had to pick 2.
