I just read about this new initiative in Blogland, and started to cry. I've lost a lot of family members to Cancer, and I know so many strong women and men fighting every day.
All the initiative is asking for is to make a 4 patch. Each 4Patch will measure 4.5" unfinished (so 2.5" squares). We can use any 2 dark colors - that represent cancers colors - and 2 light squares.
If you'd like to contribute please feel free to read further here at 4Patches4Hope
And here is a list of the colors used for each different type of cancer from ChemoAngels.net
