Guardian Angel Update: Good News!

Remember these little guardian angels? I designed and stitched them for two friends who had been diagnosed with breast cancer and needed a little extra moral support.

I received an e-mail yesterday from the daughter of the friend who received the pink angel at the top of the photo--this angel now hangs over her bed! Her daughter was enlisting my support for her participation next month in the Rocky Mountain Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, a 39-mile trek from Keystone to Breckenridge, Colorado. She'll be walking IN HONOR of her mother, who recently completed her chemotherapy treatment. She'll be starting radiation therapy soon, but the prognosis is excellent!

In a recent phone call, my friend explained that, 10 years ago, her particular type of cancer had the lowest survival rate. But today, through advances in research, this cancer now has the highest survival rate. Isn't modern medicine wonderful?!

These cheerfu little beauties will help her maintain a smiling and positive attitude - which is vital to recovery!

Good news! I see the angels are doing their job. Modern medicine is a marvel and cancer no longer a death sentence. Good luck to both your friends.

These are just so cute as well as being really special, I just know that they will now be treasured by the ladies who they flew to lok after as I can testofu that they really help recovery.

I too had a beautiful guardian angel that Pierrette made for me when I went into hospital but some rotton swine stole my handbag last year along with my angel, I now carry a photo of her in my purse to look after me
