My experience
Created By: Crystal Lowe

My name is Crystal and I work in a medical clinic. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with 2 types of breast cancer as well as kidney cancer all within 6 months of each other. I continued to work through all of my treatments. With in the clinic that I work, we have an infusion clinic where patients spend hours getting treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and so on. One day a patient, who was in our clinic, gave me a prayer shawl that she had made while getting her treatment. I used it all the time while I was sitting and getting my chemo. Once I was over my treatments and on my way to recovery, I was told about a person who I work with but not in the same area that I am in, was diagnosed with breast cancer. I thought about the shawl that I was given and the comfort it brought. It was the best thing that I ever recieved so I made one for my co-worker. We both still use our shawls to this day and even though we are a few years into our recovery they still bring us a measure of comfort. I am hoping, once I get through some other crocheting obligations, to work on more shawls to take to the cancer center at the hospital where I received treatment.

I still see the special lady who gave me my shawl and have told her about her inspiration. I wanted her to know how special it was to me and that I hope to carry it on.
