Free Chemo Pillows

The great Jim Miller, a dear friend of the family, passed away this summer from a long bout with cancer. He followed his wife, Julee, who'd succumbed to the same villain a few years earlier. Then last week, Robert Little, a friend whose family I've gotten to know and love through Fiber of Her Being, met the same fate. And we all know about Barack Obama's grandmother dying of cancer last Monday, the day before she saw her grandson make history.

It makes me sick.
I'm SICK of my loved ones getting cancer.
I'm sick of my loved ones' loved ones getting cancer.

I'm going to do three things about it. First, I'm making a donation to the American Cancer Society for their work in preventing and curing different forms of cancer. Second, I'm making a donation to the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, for treating and curing so many of my friends and family in East Texas. And third...

I'm giving away FIVE FREE CHEMO PILLOWS during the month of November. If I can't rid the world of this terrible scourge, I can damned well comfort some of the people who have to fight it.

Chemo (or Comfort) Pillows are 14" x 14" pillows that I personalize for the recipient. The pillows feature pictures of the patient's family and loved ones (that includes pets!) and motifs and colors that they like. They are emotionally comforting and physically soft, and give people something to look at and think about while they go through chemotherapy sessions. And as two people have said, they make the recipients remember what -- and whom -- they are fighting for.
I'll be making one free pillow each for the first five people who contact me through the end of November, 2008. I'll charge you $10 shipping, but the labor and materials are on me. For more details, please see the Comfort and Chemo page of my website.
Please take me up on it. I feel the need to do SOMETHING.
