Stitching a Cure

This year my family had its first close brush with cancer. Thankfully, in just over two months life is back to normal for everyone involved, the the chance of recurrence is thought by doctors to be very low. We were lucky, but cancer never goes away, you just have to hope you die of old age before it comes back. To put it plainly, cancer sucks.

A few years ago I started stitching Lizzie*Kate’s Peace, Love and a Cure. And although it is dedicated to breast cancer (not the kind of cancer we dealt with, at least this time), it sort of feels like the right time to finish stitching this. So, it has been put back into my rotation and is my current computer stitching.

I hope desperately that my family, and your family, never have to deal with cancer again. But if we do, I can only hope that it will be as relatively painless as this experience was.

    Sending you love and virtual hugs – it’s something almost everyone has to deal with one way or another and spreading love seems to me to be the best way to cope and to help. I’m sure everyone reading this will have been there and empathise with you. x

    I’m glad that your family’s brush with cancer had a positive outcome. We were fortunate as well in that respect. I feel that anymore everyone has been touched by this in some way or form. Your little LK design is lovely and will give some hope that a cure is found for so many.
