Friday’s cute little guy is now for sale!
The pattern itself is $5.00 however, $3.00 of each sale will be sent to one of my favorite cancer charities, Stupid Cancer. Their focus is on young adults (like me!) living with cancer. We are an underserved group who have special needs and questions that pediatric and geriatric cancer survivors don’t have.
One of my frustrations with the literature I was given was that they never really covered the questions I had about sex, fertility, working/careers, my relationships with my husband and family. Having cancer at 25 and dealing with doctors and medical insurance wasn’t something that was covered in college. I never dreamed that three years after graduation (2007! We were the best class, by far!) I would have to sit down with my mom and husband and tell them what I wanted my funeral to look like.
The people at Stupid Cancer understood where I was coming from and they’re trying to make a difference and advocate for us. Donating a portion of my sales is the least I can do, I feel.
Many thanks to the Unique Sheep for yarn support. They are a great small company who also feel strongly about supporting their community and giving back.
