Around 150 people are diagnosed with cancer each minute in the United States. Cancer is one of the scariest words in our society. Early diagnosis increases the survival rate significantly. We lost a family member to cancer last year and I'm sure most of you have dealt with the disease also.
Every man and women should with the help of their doctor discuss a cancer screening plan. Here is a link to the American Cancer Society's page for cancer screening.
I receive requests every year to design a pattern that can be sold at fund raisers for the research, prevention and hopefully someday a cure for cancer. I want the pattern to have the message of hope. The hope is to live a long and fruitful life as a survivor of cancer.
On a side note I used to listen to a podcast titled Inside Home Recording. One of the hosts was Derek Miller. Derek was diagnosed with cancer I believe in 2007. Shortly after being diagnosed he started sharing his day to day efforts to beat the disease on his blog. Derek is in the final stages of cancer that is likely to take his life in the not too distant future. Derek has been incredibly revealing into what a cancer patient encounters every day. This is not a story that is going to have a happy ending but if you have a family member or friend with cancer you might gain some insight into how they might feel. Let me warn you that there are things discussed on his blog that you might find shocking.
