Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? I didn’t, until Liz Hawkins, of LizzieBcre8ive, sent me an email about it — and I got an email full of pictures of the Utah Quilt Guild’s recent QuiltFest, featuring Valerie Burton’s drive for quilts and quilt blocks. They both came on the same day and I immediately knew what I needed to talk about for this podcast. In usual fashion, the message is best given to the Teacher by the Teacher. It’s been 5 years, at least, since I’ve had my last mammogram…
In this show, Valerie Burton shares her passion about easing cancer victims’ stuggles and makes us a little more aware of our need to annually step up to the mammogram plates.
Here are the pictures that Valerie sent to me from QuiltFest:
Huntsman Cancer Institute is a state-of-the-art facility in Salt Lake City, Utah mentioned in the podcast. If I ever have cancer, this is the place I want to go to be taken care of.
And here is the link to the LizzieBcre8ive blog, where you can see and get all of the details for the Breast Cancer Awareness quilt that is on display in the King of Prussia Brighton store.
Here’s a sneak peek at what the quilt and quilting crew looks like:
You may have the opportunity to win this quilt for a cause! Wouldn’t you like to own this special quilt?
Now, if you haven’t had your “annual” yet this year, go make an appointment!!
