Happy Anniversary!...and an Invitation

Our guild received a certificate of appreciation from Seattle Children's Hospital's Guild Association in honor of our 5th anniversary.
They plan to honor our guild at the Annual Membership Luncheon on May 9th, 2014. I hope you can attend!  
If you are not yet a member of our guild, please consider joining and you will be welcome to attend this luncheon.
It is going to be a star-studded event, featuring a keynote speech by Dr. Jim Hendricks, the president of Seattle Children's Research Institute, and a special guest appearance by Dr. Michael Jensen (of the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children's Research Institute).
The Katie Gerstenberger Endowment for Cancer Research supports Dr. Jensen's lab.
One of the special presentations at the luncheon will be by a patient, Milton Wright, who is now cancer-free after his third occurrence (second relapse) of leukemia. His cancer was wiped out after he was treated with the protocol which Dr. Jensen developed!
Heartfelt thanks 
to all of our guild members, 
friends and donors! 
We appreciate each one of you
who so generously share your
time, talent and treasure
with our guild 
in order to bring comfort 
to patients and families 
at Seattle Children's Hospital.

When I think about how it all began with this quilt
which brought such comfort to Katie,
I am thrilled with the power of an idea, when put into generous hearts and hands.
The very first quilt made by Katie's Comforters
