Hi! I'm Robin. 


In August 2012, my sister Emily was diagnosed with breast cancer. For her birthday in October, I told her I'd make her a quilt and raffle it off to help her raise funds to cover her living and medical expenses while she's going through chemotherapy.

Read more about Emily and see more pictures of the quilt here:  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151339813999282.528676.583639281&type=1&l=308413b6e5

Here's the fine print -- as fine as I can make it anyway.

-I'll raffle off the quilt I made to a random entrant on the morning of December 17, 2012. All entries need to be in by midnight on December 16.

-100% of the money raised will go directly to Emily.

-To enter the raffle, donate any amount of money to Emily on this site. Each multiple of $10 will result in one entry into the raffle. $10 is the minimum donation (one entry) and there is no maximum.

-I'll use random.org to pick the winner and will make sure it arrives by December 24.

Laurie W., another cancer survivor, won the quilt but Emily has won so much love, support, good thought, and encouragement. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't thank you enough.

Friends,

Emily and I are so incredibly overwhelmed by your love and support. Thank you! I've spent the last two weeks walking around with firsthand knowledge that there is so so so much good in the world. Thank you for being so good to my sister.

I've been working on a little extra on the back of the quilt. I'll finish that up, share pictures, and wrap up the raffle a few days early (on the morning of Wednesday 12/12). Hopefully, by that time, we'll have doubled our original fundraising goal. If you can, please share the raffle once more today or tomorrow.

Thank you so much for loving and supporting my sweet sister.

Robin

Hello to all my lovely supporters! I just wanted to write and let you know how much this all means to me! You are supporting not only me, but you are also demonstrating to my AMAZING big sister how much support she/we have and that there are so many kind-hearted people out there wishing us the best through this! I literally glanced at the page during my last round of chemo and it made me tear up. Such generosity and all the good wishes make this difficult process so much easier to bear (get it - Bear!). Though my chemo-addled brain leaves little room for eloquence and wit these days, I just wanted to express some gratitude from myself, my partner Bonnie and our son Levi. I hope your good deeds return to you ten-fold and your holidays are almost unbearably great. Thanks!
