    Thanks OldsLady1992, I'll be on the look out. I haven't spoken with her this week, she was going to try and continue to work at her job in between her treatments, they are on a limited income and she feels like she has enough energy. But I worry about that.
    It's another beautiful day!

    I sent an envy for Melody earlier this week.
    My prayers to her, sending her healing thoughts.

    Thank you, sharlene54! I appreciate that and will let you know when it arrives.

    I'm sewing quilt blocks this weekend with some sewing friends to make a small quilt for Melody that she can bring to her appointments. I'll try to post photos of it in progress and when it's done.

    I wish everyone a good weekend ahead!
    It's another beautiful day!

    I'd like to send an atc or 2 aswell, can I have your address ?
    I haven't had to deal with cancer and I hope I never have to. You lady's are all so brave and need to be so strong... big hugs from me.
    P.s. Is it ok if I make an ATC with a healing mantra on it ? That's the idea I got whilst reading this thread.

    Hi Daphne75, I'll PM you my address. You can totally send with a healing mantra, anything uplifting. Thanks for the nice words and yes, kudos to all the women here who've had to deal with this. Such courage and determination!
    It's another beautiful day!

    Hi Connie (OldsLady1992), yes your box arrived yesterday along with some lovely cards from ann_stebbing. Thank you both so much.

    I hope to see Melody this week, her next chemo treatment is Tuesday. She is hanging in there and I know all these cards and gifts will lift her up.
    It's another beautiful day!

    Melody has the cards she's received hanging in her window in her sewing room. She absolutely loves them and has asked me to thank you all.

    Some of her favorites are the fairy and butterfly ones but she loves them all. She has been carrying two other favorites in her purse.

    Saturday I will be getting together with two other friends to put the quilt top together that we are working on. I'll post pics for you.
    It's another beautiful day!

    I'd be honored to send her a card. I am currently rehabbing/healing from a life threatening illness. The power of prayer and the number of people sending me get well cards and wishes make my current recovery possible.....along with the extremely skilled and wonderful Doctors, Nurses, and all staff at the Cleveland Clinic.

    Please let me know where to send a card to this courageous woman.

    Hi Annie, thank you for sharing your own story, I'm praying for you too! I'll PM you my address as I'm collecting for Melody and sharing the cards in bulk with her.

    For Melody, here is the quilt top that I've worked on with two other friends. It's ready to be quilted. Good size for cuddling with during treatment (50"x50").



    I'm traveling for work this week so I probably won't be able to post any updates until I get back home.

    Be safe everyone!
    It's another beautiful day!

    Daphne75, I received Melody's wonderful cards on Saturday. She will be thrilled to get them, and please be sure to thank Abby for including a card for her, too.

    Gemma (atelierGLV), I also received your envelope with the cards and swiss quilting fabric pieces - these will bring her such joy.

    Melody is feeling good after her second chemo treatment. Her youngest daughter came to visit this week (she has been working with the Peace Corps) and that has lifted her spirit tremendously.

    Thank you all again for your generous RAKs and kindness.
    It's another beautiful day!
