I TOTALLY agree with the sentiment. My mother is on her third bout with cancer - started in her colon and metastasized to her liver.  It sucks big time.

OMG!!!  I am a chair for my local Relay For Life and have been thinking of cross-stitching the same thing for our raffle!!!  That is too cool!

To give credit where credit is due, my cousin said that she got the idea from preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.subversivecrossstitch.com').

Thanks for the warm wishes everyone.

That's so great! I think that a big part of kicking the tar out of cancer is having just that attitude.

First let me say, that it sucks that so many people have said that they've had experience with colon cancer.. especially those who have not had happy outcomes, BUT! how much does it rock that most of us have said that they/the person they love were able to kick it.

My mom was diagnosed with colon cancer about 7 years ago. She is now happily cancer free and doing well. The emotional stuff that cancer leaves behind is really hard to deal with though. I know that she and I have used creating as a way to channel anger...

So rock on!

Totally cool.  I wish someone had given that to me when I had colon cancer.

Five  years cancer free!  WOO HOO.

Five years from now that's what your Mom will be saying.

I was diagnosed with cancer a little over two years ago, and took up embroidery with a Sublime Stitching kit during recovery. I keep meaning to get the SXS F-Cancer one but I have such a backlog of sewing/embroidery that I haven't been able to get to due to school.

I am sorry to hear about your Mom. I don't know if your Mom would be into it, but Sublime Stitching really helped me get through recovery when there was not much else my body could do except TV and crosswords. Maybe once you know what her treatment plan will be, you can create a "sunshine package" for her and stick a Sublime or Subversive stitching kit in there for her!
