Three years ago my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. After chemo and radiation, she has been cancer-free for two years. Last year, however, her older sister passed away due to complications aggravated by breast and pancreatic cancers. Every year since her diagnosis my mom has walked the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure with her children and grandchildren.
This year, I decided that I wanted to make something special for the granddaughters to wear. Using past Race for the Cure tee shirts and scraps of fabric, I made three little scrappy dresses, inspired by Little Blue Boo’s style.
It was a very last-minute project, but they turned out fun and the girls loved them (see Ivy reaching for a little high-5 action?)
But the boys were jealous.
Next year I need to make something for them, too.
We walked in celebration of Lorraine and in memory of Patricia.
