Many quilters in our community make comfort quilts for friends and family with cancer, and donate quilts for auctions where proceeds are given to cancer research. A large number of you have made quilts that are a textile representation of your own journey with the disease. I applaud all of your efforts. I lost a dear sister to breast cancer -- if there's anything I can ever do to help spread the word about a cancer awareness project, just ask.
We all know that pink signifies breast cancer awareness, but other cancers and diseases use different colors to show support and enhance attention to research. My awareness ribbon colors list might help you design your next quilt.
