Tickled Pink Donates Inspirational Quilt

Patients undergoing treatment at the NorthBay Cancer Center need only look up on the wall to be reminded of all the things that cancer can’t do, thanks to an inspirational wall hanging that was recently donated to the center.

The wall hanging was made by participants in the ninth annual “Tickled Pink — Quilting for aDetails of the quilt donated by Tickled Pink. Cure” event held last fall in Vacaville. More than 60 quilters signed up for the all-night stitching marathon that raised $20,000. Quilters voted to donate $5,000 of the funds, as well as the inspirational wall hanging they made that night, to the NorthBay Cancer Center. After finishing touches were made, the completed project with its inspirational sayings was delivered by Tickled Pink members (left to right) Karen Donahue and Connie Ward to Clinical Practice Manager Louise Henry and Bea Castro, practice manager, Oncology.

“The Quilting for a Cure’s mission is to enrich the lives of cancer patients and their families by partnering with organizations who provide diverse support services in our local community,” noted Michelle Craft, a member of the Tickled Pink committee and owner of A Quilted Heart fabric store in Vacaville.
