My name is Martha, and I am addicted to knitting. Currently I feed my addiction by knitting and purchasing yarn and reading blogs.

Sorry to hear that your mom has cancer. It's great that she is almost done with chemo. I too had lymphoma and I know how rough it can be. Since I had lymphoma I am not allowed to donate blood or organs. This really upsets me. So I donate in other ways. I'm in walk of lights, knit chemo caps and scarves, do relay for life, and my proudest moment....I just donated my hair last week! That is one thing that doesn't matter what cancer or chemo I had. A few guy coworkers are growing their hair long in order to donate. I seem to be the only lady who didn't mind giving up her long hair. I wish you and your mom the best. I'll continue to encourage people to donate blood and time for cancer.
I donate blood regularly. In fact, I just gave last week. Ericha in New Mexico. email@example.com
Martha,So sorry to hear about your mom. I'm not eligible to donate again until 17 November (that's if I can keep up my iron levels). Should we still be looking to tag the blood for her?Janvtcjan at yahoo.com
I just so happened to have an appointment to donate blood yesterday (already planned before I read your post). They probably say this to everyone, but they told me that my blood would be going to newborn babies. So I got to save a baby (or two) yesterday. Marcie in Ohiomarcie_marugg at msn dot com
This was a great idea. I put you button up on my blog. I hope you get loads of people responding.
I read about your blood donation contest yesterday on Wendyknits. Coincidentally, my regular blood donation appointment was yesterday. I've been giving every 8 weeks with my mom. It's something we do together to make a difference in our little corner of the firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm so sorry about your mom's cancer - but glad to hear chemo is coming to an end -- Since I'm only a year out from treatments for breast cancer, I can't donate these days. But "coincidentally" yesterday was the day my son had scheduled to give blood. He'll be 17 this weekend, and this was his 4th blood donation. Since he's under-aged, I have to go with him and sign my OK every time - since I can't give, I knit and wait. For this and many other reasons, I'm so proud of him.
