A letter to my friends.....

Five years ago my nephew Tyler suddenly began having seizures. During a recent stay at Children’s Hospital, Tyler was diagnosed with a large brain tumor that is believed to have been causing the seizures all these years.
Tyler is 15 and loves sports, especially wrestling, fishing, hunting, gaming and hanging out with his friends. Right now, though, he cannot do many of those treasured things that boys his age get to do. Worst of all, Tyler is currently unable to attend school. He is a sweet-natured boy with a tender heart. When people meet him they cannot help but instantly like him.
His long term treatment will require major surgery along with recovery and rehabilitation. His rehabilitation will require him to relearn all of the basics of life you and I know how to do and many of us take for granted each day. To help defray some of the costs that his family will incur, I have determined to undertake this "Scraps of Love" project.
How did all this come to be? During an outing with a dear friend, I asked "what do you think of a spaghetti dinner?". She said "Oh, no Heather, lets make a quilt!" I instantly agreed. What better way to spread our love than through our stitches. With the help of some very talented quilting friends, I am creating a twin size quilt that will be raffled off to raise money that will help offset Tylers non-insurance-covered hospital expenses. Elizabeth D. won the quilt!
Donations of any size are very welcome.

"Please just fix it, and make it better."

Exciting news the first 4, 10" squares are completed!  Only 44 more to go! This part goes fast so I bet, I am putting the squares together by this weekend.  :0)

Last night, I was remembering the day that the doctor's told my sister and Randy (Tyler's dad) about the brain tumor, and this is what Tyler told his parents, 
"Please just fix it, and make it better." 
Those words continually run through my mind and motivates me to dedicate myself in helping his parents to make it better. Scraps of Love for Tyler is one of the ways that I am trying to help and it is through your support that we can help fix it for Tyler. Thank you for all that you do and remember to tell your loved ones that you love them...

May you always be blessed along your path!
With all my love,
