    Brenda, thank you for sharing your story. I can’t imagine the strength is takes to confront cancer head on like you. I agree that crochet is a way to leave a piece of us with friends or family. I made an afghan for my cousin from an unfinished afghan his mom had started in the 70’s! Well done on being a positive example of faith and love for your family.

    Brenda,
    I have worked in hospitals for all of 36 years and a positive attitude is very important. I know 2 people ( friends) that were told they hand 3 weeks to live because of very aggressive brain tumors.
    They both at still here. 1 was a doctor, he still raises buffalo and has been around over 10 years past the 3 week Mark. The other one wad diagnosed at 20 and is still married to his childhood sweetheart. He has bypassed the 3 week Mark by 18 years.
    So keep up your positive attitude and your beautiful crochet work, it may keep you here order your daughter graduate and I hope it does.
    Prayers for you.

    I hope Brenda is still around to read this. I am recovering from lung cancer surgery and I have been crocheting a lot. I finished a little sweetie dress and a matching diaper cover and am so proud of myself, as it is the biggest project I have ever finished. Thanks Mikey!

    Brenda, Thank You for being an Inspiration to me.

    You see, I am trying to get my doctor to see that my physical pain is so intense and is connected to the multiple nodules on my Thyroid and the mass they found in my left hip and now possibly even my right hip is cancer but she will not even check me out to make a determination one way or the other so I am desperately trying to get the healthcare and pain relief I need.

    So I would like to ask you to pray for me and I will pray for you as well, hun, I understand the fear and anger so if you need to talk any time just look me up at http://masqueradingcrafter.blogspot.com. In fact any of you crocheters can come for a visit …I would love the company.

    Brenda, Don’t give up. Your story hits home for me because my mother died of cancer 4 years ago and that is when I learned to crochet. She taught me to make scrubbies over the phone. I would make one round and then call her for the next and so on. Since she has gone to Heaven i have not stopped crocheting. It keeps me close to her. Make sure you teach your daughter and the grand kids before you go if you get a chance. Life is to short and I wish you the best. |God Bless.

    Brenda, my prayers are with you as you go through this trial. Know that miracles do happen and I pray that you will be one of them. You are very brave and your positive attitude is a great help to you. One of my sister-in-laws had stage 3 cancer last year and her attitude is totally positive and I am sure that that has been what brought her through it. Keep going and know that others are praying for you.

Your spirit just lit up my screen! If I were closer to OR, I’d drive up just to shake your hand or give you a hug. I am gonna just believe with you for that dream of seeing your youngest graduate! Doctors are just human, they can only speak possibilities, but the human heart can overcome so many obstacles! Hang tough…and know that we are all rooting for you!

    Hi Brenda… I want you to know how brave and wonderful you are! How much YOU inspire ME! I am a crocheter myself. My husband became ill with colon cancer in March 2011 and for that next year, we lived at Peace Health South West Medical Center in Vancouver, WA and their chemo department. I crocheted more at that point than I ever had before. To keep myself and my mind busy during the surgeries, chemo treatments and times he was sleeping, I crocheted hats for the chemo department. Sadly, my beloved lost his battle on February 10, 2012 at the age of 38. Not to long after he passed, I created “Social Media Hooker” on Facebook and to this day, I still crochet hats and donate to the chemo department at Peace Health. Many of my fellow crocheters gather with me in Feb for a hat drive in his memory. What hospital are you out of hun? I would love to do a hat drive! God bless you in your fight… you have a strong will and I have know doubt you will accomplish your every desire!

Those left behind will find comfort and peace looking at and holding what your very gifted hands have created. I taught my father to needlepoint and embroiderywhen he became very ill. He has been gone almost 5 years and I am surrounded by these lasting gifts. It reminds me he is still with me in spirit. God bless you and your family.

I am praying for strength for your family to help them get through this time and to appreciate the remaining time, however long, He is allowing you to persevere through this terrible disease.
    I am happy that you have found peace and comfort in crochet and that you have found the Crochet Crowd. Mikey is the best! When I read his blogs, I can hear his voice and it is very comforting and soothing – so full of honesty, truth and caring.
    May you go on til the end in happiness and joy. {{hugs}}
    To Mikey: Thank you for sharing Brenda’s story. It is sad to know she is going to be leaving her family for a better place in Heaven, but she will be a Glorious Angel watching over her family from above, safe from the evils we are fighting here on this Earth. You, Mikey, are a Godsend to many of us. As I said above to Brenda, your honesty, truthfulness & caring goes way beyond your crocheting. Thank you for all you do! {{hugs}} ~โ™ฅ~

    Brenda, you are not only making memories and leaving warmth for you family, you are leaving the image with them of someone who made her life count. Your positive attitude will always be remembered by them. Your remaining days will be happier because you are keeping busy and your family will think back and see you crocheting wonderful memories for them. I pray you will be one of many miracles that do happen and will have a long life. Anyone with an illness that has been diagnosed as “terminal” reading your story should take note of your outlook on life. You are an inspiration to us all. Keep crocheting.

    Matthew 7:7-8

    I believe above all Brenda, you are my inspiration. God bless you and your lovely family. You are a strong, beautiful young lady for fighting if for over 2 years. I lost my father to cancer 15 years ago, it changed my life. I quit school, while in my last semester of senior year, to help my mom take care of him. Only just 2 years ago my Mother-n-Law passed from onset of stage 4 and she wasn’t even showing signs of being sick in the beginning. They gave up. I’m so mad at them for giving up, with just few months of treatment but stopped cause it was too hard. I forgave them log ago for giving up. You never gave up. That is above the word great, that’s amazing. I want to wish you the best of times while your with your family and the best of times after. It is never the end…just the beginning of great things that can still be accomplished. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us all here at the Crowd. We will all be praying for you and keep encouraging you to make it those 4 years our wanting. Please keep us updated on your afghans and we would love to see you around the crowd. You keep hooking, and We’ll keep praying!!!

    Thanks Brenda for sharing your life with us and giving us the opportunity to truly get in touch with our inner feelings about life. I am not fighting cancer although I have had cancer remove from my head back in 08 and was told they got it all…I relate to your story through my Mama’s fight with brain cancer. I had learned to crochet when I was a child but never really did anything with my knowledge while growing up….when my mother was diagnosed with her stage 4 cancer I took off my summer job and went to her home and stayed with her after surgery during her radiation treatments…she loved to crochet and do other needle crafts so when we were together for the summer months we crocheted together and she taught me more than the simple techniques that I knew….since her passing I have all the memories of our times together and the conversations we had while crocheting together. For me today and in the future my crocheting is a comfort and a time of peace and reflection on the love my mother and I shared.
    I pray God blesses you and your family with all his peace and love that only He can give for the times you all are facing. Trust Him in all things concerning your life and he will guide you in the way you should go.

    Dear Brenda, When cancer invades our lives we begin to look at things differently. Each new day is a blessing, each hug and smile are important. And, yes I speak from experience. I have always crocheted and knit; but since finding The Crochet Crowd, I have become more adventurous with my patterns and have learned much from their videos. It sounds as though you are fighting the good fight; but also dealing with the possibilities of what may come. But, keep fighting as I firmly believe only God knows when our time is done here in our earthly bodies. Will add you to my prayers and send you all my cancer fighting vibes! Thank you for sharing and know that your family will love and cherish anything you make them, and perhaps you’ll get to enjoy watching them with their afghans for years to come. Hugs all the way from Nova Scotia! Marilyn

Sometimes I can tell that they aren’t crazy about my gifts but I hope that someday, they will appreciate them ๐Ÿ™‚ Mikey is a great inspiration to many, many people and I am sure that his love of the art and willingness to teach all of us will be an inspiration for you …
