My family just found out yesterday that my sister, Heather, has cancer. She has been sick since November, and the last couple of weeks finally narrowed it down to the point where we got a diagnosis of cancer. She either has lymphoma or leukemia or a combination of both, so she will see a specialist to help type her cancer. Heather has been amazing–she has been calm through the testing and diagnosis and she is prepared for the treatments ahead. She is even okay with losing her hair, and that’s saying something because she has long gorgeous hair.

The first thing I’m going to knit her is a flaming pink Hallowig. I’m sure my knitting needles will be busy making things to keep her spirits up. Please keep my sister in your prayers as she begins this battle.
