Night For Life

I made this blue quilt last winter and donated it to a friend who was organizing a gala for the Canadian Transplant Association as a way to raise awareness and express gratitude.    My friend, Matt, had become very ill with an auto immune liver/bile duct disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, or PSC.  In the fall of 2014 Matt had a liver transplant, and received a portion of his cousin’s liver.  Both donor and recipient are doing well.


Night For Life

I’ve made this quilt twice and love its simplicity.  It’s fun to make and goes together very quickly.

I met Matt through an online group for people with PSC.  Yes, that includes me.  However, PSC affects people in many different ways and my doctors think that I will remain fairly healthy.

If you haven’t thought about organ donation, please do.  If you’re procrastinating about signing the card, please don’t!

Here’s a link to some good info about PSC.  Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis

Thanks for reading.
