Nana




October is almost over, but breast cancer is not. I wanted to make a simple beanie for my Nana, who is now cancer free. Not once, but twice. This woman is an amazing person with a love for God and and her family. She is and inspiration to me. This is for her and all the others who battle with this disease. Remembering the ones we have lost.

  4. How wonderful. I am a breast cancer survivor of almost 4 years. I would like to make a couple and donate to the oncologist's office that took care of me when I went through chemo. Is that okay? Of course, I will make one for me too.....
