Butterfly Crochet Creations: Fighting Cancer with Warmth and Comfort
One of my goals while I am in Israel is to use my ability to crochet to benefit cancer patients. As many of you know, my mother-in-law, Sandy Gamzon, passed away a few years ago after losing her battle with lung cancer. My greatest connection with Sandy was crocheting, and we spent many afternoons and evenings crocheting together, particularly during her illness. When Sandy was diagnosed, she was given two hand-made blankets that she used throughout her treatments and her hospice care. In her memory, I will be making similar blankets and other crocheted items to provide other cancer patients with the warmth they need to fight this fight.
Sandy is not the only family member affected cancer. My grandfather, Lawrence Munk, passed away in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. My grandmother, Madeline Munk, passed away in 2009 from a pancreatic tumor that interfered with other organ function. A few other family members, friends, and family of friends have had cancer and survived. I hope that my crocheted creations will provide the strength and comfort to everyone who is fighting this difficult battle.
