Help Colleen & get lots of patterns! ♥

Colleen is the mom of 3 little kids, that were 6 mo, 1 and 3 years old when their mom was diagnosed with cancer.
They are now 7, 6 & 5 (thank you Kimi!), and they moved with their dad & mom to Seattle so Colleen can undergo treatment.
Being a mom, I can't even begin to imagine Collen's pain, and the pain her whole family is going through. Cancer sucks and I still can't understand why we haven't found a cure.
You can read her whole story here, and you can help by either donating money or participating/placing a bid in one of the auctions that her family has every week (here)

One of the things being auctioned this week is a signed copy of "Amigurumi Toy Box", and ALL the patterns availabe in my Etsy shop, so I really think you should go over and place a bid HERE!

You have time until Friday. Please please go over and help out, and keep their family in your thoughts!


  1. Thank you so much for the link Ana!

    A small clarification -- Colleen's cancer was diagnosed when her kids were tiny, was treated and came back. Her kids are now 7, 6 and 5. In fact, her daughter is Oli's age. :)

    I can't thank you enough for your help in this. *huge hugs from WA*

  2. @Kimi
    Thank you! I just changed it :) I also posted it in Etsy and Ravelry and have twitted about it a couple of times (& will keep doing it). Big hug!

  3. Oh! What a cute scene! Thnks to share!
