Kandace has a wonderful eye and ability to put life into her quilts, I have admired her work for sometime, so when her quilt came up for auction at last years Quilt Festival auction for Breast cancer. I was the lucky bidder. The quilt has so much meaning to me because it represents celebrating passing the five-year recovery mark for cancer. My husband had just accomplished that feat and it means a great deal to me. .As I looked at the quilt I realized its message would be lost hanging in my house. To me it represented joy and success and it needed to be shared; so I asked Susan Carter, if she could arrange to have it hang in her Mammogram department at Gig Harbors new Multicare facility, she jumped at the chance because she had also admired the quilt and felt it was a great idea. So the powers that be at Multicare also loved the quilt but did not have the funds to frame it and hang it properly, Susan voluntarily paid the price to have it framed and believe me it was a hefty amount. Once framed, it looked wonderful. Seeing the quilt, framed Multicare really loved it and felt that hanging it in the Oncology department would be better, because "sadly" more people would see it. So that is the story of how Kandace's quilt of joy became a part of the Mulicares Oncology department, it hangs alone on a beautiful leather wall and really looks great. So Koodo's to Kandice and Susan for making a beautiful and encouraging statement about surviving cancer. More and more people are doing it and the joy one feels when the invisible line is crossed, words cannot describe.
There will be a story about the quilt in Multicares newsletter so our Kandace will soon become famous, well anyway she is as far as I am concerned don't you agree.
