Dealing with Cancer
Many of you know I received a diagnosis of breast cancer in November 2017. I am undergoing attentive treatment, and the good news is that I have a positive prognosis (the tumor is actually shrinking!) that this will be but a short blip in an otherwise blessedly healthy life.
For now though, please know that undergoing treatment means that my energy is not quite at its usual high level. Living off the grid certainly gives a unique twist to treatment! I am working (oh, I absolutely must continue my work and holiday orders will go out this week), but my hours are shorter, and my response time to emails is also.
Many have asked what they can do to help. My dear friend Maria has created a fund raising site for me to help wrangle with personal costs and medical bills. If you care to participate in this, the site is: https://www.youcaring.com/mebboden-1034636 Otherwise, please continue your gracious thoughts and prayers for my quick recovery. I can’t tell you how much these mean to me.
I so appreciate the support and encouragement that you all have shown me during this time. How fortunate I am to have so many friends and fans who send me love throughout the week. Please continue to keep in touch, and let’s look toward 2018 with an artful, crafty spirit.
Happy Holidays to all!
