I was listening to the Knitmore Girls Podcast
the other day as I was working
on my wire sculptures.
They reviewed a new Cat Bordhi book
and my ears perked up when they said
that ALL of the proceeds from the sale of this book
go to funding research and test trials
for a new method of treating cancer.
This method would do away with chemotherapy!!
Can you imagine??
Without belaboring the point,
I will say that chemotherapy is not the most fun party
I've ever been to!
I am very active and think of myself as being
and yet this treatment has laid me low.
I know it is only temporary,
and I will do anything to obliterate the
cancer cells from my body,
but it is not fun.
The new form of treatment involves taking
some of the body's own cancer-fighting t-cells
and growing many, many more of them in a laboratory setting,
then reinstalling them into the body of the cancer patient.
No hair loss, no nausea, no killing of good cells
in order to kill the bad cells.
I urge you to purchase this book -
it's only $20 -
and the cause is so well worth it.
You can read much more about the treatment on Cat's website,
and you can listen to an interview with Cat
on the Twinset Designs podcast.
Cat Bordhi has a way with knitting needles
She makes the most intricate directions
And she designs wonderful things -
the newest example being her FELFS:
felted footwear for families.
I can't wait to get yarn
and begin knitting Felfs for my entire family.
Cat even provides a source for Felf soles,
if you so desire.
So please check this out,
and do your part to obliterate the need for
God forbid you or someone you dearly love
is required to endure this hideous treatment.
I'm off to order yarn for my first pair of Felfs!
thanks for stopping by
peace to you and yours!
