Do you remember our Welded Quilt from just more than a week ago?
I told you we had a plan for it....so I (Megan) pieced the quilt top and sent it off to Heather to be finished. She finished it over the weekend and she delivered it to our big brother, Dan.
Two days after his 43rd birthday (just over a month ago) Dan was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. It was a shock to everyone. He immediately went into surgery to have the tumor removed from his colon. Soon after they met with an oncologist who, frankly, didn't give Dan and his family any hope at all. For this dad of 4 that just isn't an option!!
So after a LOT of research and a LOT of prayer they've found a treatment center that is perfect for healing Dan so he can spend many years with his wife and kids (and us!!). However it is very expensive and it is not covered by insurance. A YouCaring page has been set-up for him. If you are able to donate at all (forgo your morning coffee out, take lunch from home) and add those funds to my brother's cause we would be so so grateful.
You can also follow along on Instagram. Our sister-in-law Charity is keeping everyone very informed on her account @avibrantlife. You can follow #fightenforlighten as well. And Heather and I will be raffling handmade items for him as well @quiltstory and @quiltstorymeg
Thanks everyone for taking the time and reading this post very very dear to our hearts.
