My first visit to the chemo lab, like anyone else was scary. I had gone in for what I thought was a routine blood check only to find out that my counts were dangerously low. The doctor said that they had found that Retuxun, a chemo drug they use for leukemia, had helped other ITP patience. He wanted me to try it immediately. So I found myself in the chemo lab. I was worried about what this meant for me and when I found out how long the treatment was I worried whether I would be home when my kids got home. Then in pops Ginger, bald and boobless, smiling and say how cancer sucks and we need to do something to make it fun. Then before her treatment she handed out prizes. She really did bring a little happiness to the chemo lab and for a while cancer sucked a little less. That was about five years ago. Now Happy Chemo is nation wide. And thanks to my quilt guild 7 more people will receive quilts as their prizes.
Just look at the beauties they made for this great cause.
Thank you, Sue, Vivian, Lorri, Norma, Jean and Michelle.
