'You've Got Your Health'

Those words mean much to folks whose loved ones are ill and fighting to get and stay healthy. My friend Katie, of See Katie Sew knows all about those words. Her hubby John has been battling lymphoma and Katie has been fighting right along side him. I've admired her work for a long time, but more importantly, I've admired her courage and how she has openly shared both the ups and downs of John's illness.
Katie has made this quilt to help raise money for the "Light the Night' walk for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. She's having a giveaway on her blog to support her team raising money for this event. Crosses for a Cause would be a great name for this quilt...and don't you love that orange back!
So, for Fitness Friday this week, if you've got your health, help someone who doesn't and check out Katie's giveaway. Let's be part of her team!

Beautiful! A friend of mine passed away (lymphoma) two years ago, she was 30. It was so hard to accept that someone your own age with a little happy family had to go! It still is.

Great quilt and a great cause. I am an Oncology nurse and my unit had a team walking this weekend.
