slippers and hats for comfort.

My grandaughter Maddie Wolaston had a transplant 1 year ago May. She has CML . Her skin was very sensitive and she said everything was scrachy. So I started crocheting slippers and hats for her and she loved them. I live so far away I could not do much for her but I could crochet for her and ship right to Motts children unit at the Michigan University Hospital. One day one of the children on the unit was alone and crying so Maddie went in to sooth her and gave her one of her hats a pair of slippers as she had so many. Three days later she had her mom call because she needed more hats and slippers for other children, it got so big that freinds from church had to start helping and we sent Maddie pictures and she told her mom "look mommy I have so many grannies to help me." And that is how maddie grannies became to be.Now we give to Snt. Judes Childrens unit in SPringfield MO. We live in a tiny farming community in Richland MO. Remember to pray and if you would like to start your own Maddies Grannies in your area please feel free. Drop me line somtime here at Richland United Methodist Church in MO.Thank you forletting us share s
