I don't think anyone can say their lives have not been touched in one way or another by cancer, either because they suffer from some type of cancer or because someone they love does. In my immediate family, we have been struck three times by leukemia/lymphoma. We lost my brother Joni to leukemia, while still a child. Likewise, we lost my father in 1990 to lymphoma. And after a 3-year struggle, my brother David lost his battle against CML in November, 2005. It is in honor of my family, and particularly of my brother, David, and his brave battle against CML that I have designed these patterns.
The patterns you find here are free for you to use for any charitable cause, be that to comfort someone fighting cancer or for a cancer-related fundraising effort. You do not need to request any further permission to use these patterns for any personal or group purposes, as long as they are not used for any commercial benefit.
