  Anyone thought about doing a swap that is more like comfort or items to help a cancer fighter though the day?
Most of us have someone in our lives that are fighting or have fought cancer and I know there is healing in small things. Maybe some warm hats for the head as chemo has made someone loose their hair or had scarfs, even a lap blanket to cover up and or snuggle up with when not feeling so well, A bag to hold your stuff in to go for treatment, maybe some bath things to soak in the tub in. there are so many things.... Was just wondering about this one....

 Would there be any interest in this type of swap?

Maybe in Feb the month of love?


I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy

If I have a spot open then, I'll join in. I'm a survivor and have two close friends who are battling it now. Little things do mean a lot.

My aunt has stage 3 aggressive-type breast cancer. She just had her breast removed but there are still radicals lingering that they're hoping to get with radiation. She's down to 116 lbs and still losing weight Sad And if this radiation doesn't work--there's really nothing else since the chemo she had was the strongest dosage and cannot be repeated. I would definitely love something to help cheer her up--and the family  Cry
 Her birthday is also on Valentines day, if you can believe that, This is a double yes for me. I'll keep a spot open.  Undecided

I think this is a great idea for a swap! I've certainly been touched by the awfulness of cancer lately. I don't have anyone in my life who is actively fighting cancer but I might be interested in participating just to make something for someone else that is. I don't know how that could happen.

Maybe I'll just craft-a-long with you all and send what I make to a hospital or something?
