"Never, Never, Never Give Up"~ Churchill

"If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope?  We have two options, medically and emotionally; give up or fight like hell."
~Lance Armstrong

Tuesday, October 11th, the We CAN ladies met to drive over to Provo to the Huntsman Cancer Center to deliver the comfort pillows that we made a few months ago. Ladies also brought craft items for the Mothers Without Borders Boutique that will be held November 4-5 at the Greek Orthodox Church in Salt Lake City.  This boutique is fabulous and has lots of great arts and crafts, holiday decorations and beautiful things that are made in Africa. "The boutiques have raised thousands of dollars for orphans in Zambia. These events feature handmade crafts and goods that are donated as well as beautiful treasures made by the orphans, women, and craftsman of Zambia."

 These comfort pillows are helpful for people who are having procedures done at the hospital, or from our recent experience, they are handy to hold against your chest when you need to cough after surgery and everything hurts ~ Ray said, "A pillow really helps."  I hope whenever they are used, that the person can feel the love radiating from that small pillow ~ they were sewn with lots of love, prayers and healing wishes tucked inside each one.

Bringing comfort and cheer to those who have mountains to climb
