My Crochet Today & Support Gaige

Here's the latest bag i finished up this morning. It reminds me of a very hot fire the way the colors worked out.

I've been doing a lot of Tweeting and sharing Gaiges Twitter and GoFundMe pages. He's the 19 years old young man i mentioned on here that's fighting cancer. I don't know him personally,just from what i see on Facebook etc. but as a mother of two grown sons myself, i can't imagine what he and his family are going through. He has such a spirit about him that really gets to you. Always positive. He has a great following in our community. There's been all kinds of fund raising events for him here-car washes, restaurants just to name some. Adam Sandler even met with him when he heard that Gaige wanted to meet him.  He's now in a hospital in Texas to hopefully get into a clinical trial. The hospitals here in Florida have done all they can.Of course his parents are with him and staying at a hotel. This and the fact they both took a leave from their jobs and still have bills coming in for their home in Florida and what their insurance doesn't cover is something they don't need to worry over now.
If you can. follow Gaige on Twitter & his GoFundMe 
and Facebook
Even if you can't afford a donation, sharing his pages like i do, via Twitter, blogs etc helps.

Or if you have an Etsy shop, Artfire etc, maybe consider donating the proceeds of the sale of one of your items. That's what i'm going to do with this tote.
