What is presently going on in my life, this new hexagon afghan/blanket that I made about 2 years ago and am donating to a worthy cause with 100% of the ticket sales going to F.A.C.T. (Financial Assistance for Cancer Treatments). Done in memory of my husband Roger who passed from this life last year on January 18th, 2013. Below the pictures is my write up that I posted on Facebook.
For raffle tickets go to the Facebook page:
FACT, FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE for CANCER TREATMENT. The address and phone number are near the top of their page. Tickets are $1 for 1, or $5 for 6. Anyone is welcome to purchase them. The afghan will be displayed at various fund raisers by F.A.C.T. and also in some local store windows in the area. The drawing for a winner will be in May 1, 2015.
Just wanted to give all of friends a head's up on what will be happening in the next several months. This has been in the works since earlier this year. Some of you are aware of a cancer help group called F.A.C.T. they give financial assistance to cancer patients for various things i.e. travel expenses to and from appointments/treatments. They do not pay 100% of the expense but they do pay a portion and it is a great help. They helped us when Roger was so sick. You have to have a doctor's okay and nurses sign to verify the appointments. They rely heavy on fund raisers and donations. They were a blessing to us, and I felt it was time to pay it forward. In my heart I know Roger would have wanted this. Tomorrow I donate a new hand-crocheted afghan/blanket that I made. F.A.C.T. will be displaying it at various fund raisers and sending out info on it with some of their mailings. There will be raffle tickets sold by F.A.C.T. with 100% of the sales going to help other cancer patients. They were a blessing to us and it is time for being a blessing to others in need. I will have details about ticket price as soon as I get it and anyone interested in buying a raffle ticket for this worthy cause can send me a message. I am doing this in memory of my husband Roger who passed away January 18th, 2013. He died of multiple myeloma cancer which was a result of his exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam. He fought the battle for over 2 years. I believe he is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please know that none of the money comes to me, once again, 100% goes to F.A.C.T.
Just a note, if this fund raiser goes well, then I plan to make and donate either another afghan/blanket or a quilt each year, as long as I am able.
