Community Quilt for outragedinsf

By Sara R
Monday May 15, 2017

As readers of the Monday Night Cancer Club diaries will know, our friend, outragedinsf, has prostate cancer.  It is not an uncommon cancer among men and, fortunately, the prognosis is better than with a lot of cancers. 

But the treatment for prostate cancer, be it surgery or radiation, can possibly have very negative, life-changing aftereffects.  That’s why outragedinsf has adopted a “watch and wait” approach up until now.  However, recently some lab results have led him to a different decision.  Outragedinsf is beginning radiation treatment in early July.

This gives us time to get a community quilt to him so that he can take all our good wishes along with him to treatment.  And he can rest under our loving words when healing at home.  If you would like to be a part of his quilt, just leave a message in the comments below.  I will {{{{hug}}}} you to let you know that I have picked it up, and then I will transcribe it, in archival ink on muslin, to be sewn into outragedinsf’s quilt.

It takes time and material to make a community quilt and it is a living for me and my sister.  If you would like to contribute toward its cost, here is a PayPal link for outragedinsf's quilt — or message me for an address if you prefer a check.  $20/message is suggested but no worries if you cannot afford to donate.  We still want your message!  This is a crowdfunded thing and some always give more to cover messages for those who are short on funds.
