I also have an online friend who I've known for years, named Arlene. She is the sweetest lady I've known in a long time. Recently, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is currently undergoing radiation treatment and has been depressed. With all the breast cancer afghans I've been doing, I decided to make her a ribbon hat. Yes, that's me modelling it....only for a true friend, as I ABHOR having my pic posted. I used Dee Stanziano's (of CrochetingwithDee) Tulip Preemie Cap, which is a variation of her light and lacy chemo cap. I hope it helps to cheer up Arlene.
By the way, if anyone is interested in donating to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, here's the link: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCFY09Florida?team_id=310736&pg=team&fr_id=11638
The team I'm on is the Gainesville, Florida Chapter named "Cure or Bust." Friends of mine from Occupational Health had me join three years ago. Glad to support the cause, especially since I now personally know someone and I feel like I'm really helping out! If you would like to donate, go to the link and look for my name, Beth DiBiasio. If you have trouble, contact me at email@example.com. Thanks!
