Just Blows My Mind Away!
To think how much smaller the world becomes and just how friendly this planet earth is when there are knitters like
GIGI and SHERYL (aren't their babes fantabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and arriving suitcases in hand.
BRENDA her gorgeous FiFi has now been renamed "Brenda FiFi" by her new gal pal
CHARLOTTE can you believe that gorgeous sparklie hair, so cool & is living with her new kid
ANDREA her bathing beauty takes the focus off chemo & makes her kid think--beaches
GEORGIA P is knitting up Harry Potter for a dude who looks just like him
These adolescents and teens (boys as well as girls) are involved in the struggles of trying to survive cancer and are in hospitals for long periods of time trying to get through all that they do in order to hopefully survive.
Pre-teens and Teens don't want to appear childish but they sure do have a right to cry and scream and yell it's not fair but remember there's all that peer pressure. And yes even a big strapping 15 yr old boy wants a soft squishy doll to hug and hold without having to go in the closet to do so and a knitted dude and a knitted babe is anything but childish..................It's way cool and so far all these big kids are proud to have to hold and have to show off their knitted babe and dude.
On behalf of each of the big kids who has received or who will receive a knitted dude or knitted babe of their own to help keep away the gremlins and ghosts of scary treatments, horrible side effects and the cancer itself, I say a very big thank you one and all to those who knit up and donate a dude or babe for this program.
