Natasha Strong

We received a special note from a friend this week... please read Natasha's story and contribute if you can!

This last year I've been inspired by a very close family friend during her grueling journey with Breast Cancer.  Last spring at the young age of 28, Natasha was diagnosed with stage 3 Breast Cancer.  She has since been through several rounds of chemo, surgery and is now facing radiation therapy.  Due to the intense treatment she was receiving she was forced to take a leave of absence from her job at University of Wisconsin Hospital and clinics.   Natasha is a remarkable woman with unbelievable strength and determination.  She also is an amazing mother to two beautiful girls, Paisley, 4 & Mea, 2, that she shares with her devoted partner Charles.  I've thought and thought about what I could do to help and finally decided to use my crocheting skills to raise some money for her beautiful little family.  I know that every little bit helps, and my hope is that this will work for her in a BIG WAY!  The hats cost $24, $20 of that will go towards Natasha and her family.   I’m also going to offer the hat in children’s sizes for $18, with $15 going to Natasha.  The hats can be customized to your liking: white, black, or pink and the button closure of your choosing.  I have simple buttons that work great with all three colors BUT I also ordered specialty Breast Cancer ribbon buttons.  Feel free to write, call or email me with any questions, I would be happy to mail the hats if need be.  AND…

Thank you in advance for any contribution you can provide!
