My Mother died of Adrenocortical carcinoma about 16 years ago - a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer that caught her by surprise. By the time the diagnosis was made, it was a mere 8 days until she passed away. She was only 59. She'd had a cough for several months, but didn't think anything of it. She was never one to allow a little discomfort get in her way-she was one of those go-getters! She had 11 of us kids, and there were a dozen grandkids at that point. She enjoyed riding horses, writing poetry, stories and histories. She could sew anything and had just started her very first pieced quilt. She went white-water rafting with my sister about 2 months earlier, and rode her horse just a few days prior to her passing. She was a Cowgirl Poet, and always wore her red cowboy hat at poetry events. Maybe that's why I like red so much...and sewing!
I found similar heart patterns to make both a post-mastectomy pillow, and a women's heart surgery pillow. I also found a good Heart Health CHECKLIST just in case you are interested.
