Two Cancer Awareness Finishes

Margo in the Netherlands shared this photo of a pillow she has made, using the pink ribbon color for breast cancer.  Jocelyn stitched her version with orange ribbons after her sister in law was diagnosed with leukemia last fall.  The poem that Jocelyn included is a very fitting tribute and a reminder for us all.  Beautiful jobs by both of them and I thank them both for sharing these emotional pieces.

What Cancer Cannot Do:

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the spirit.
