I am honored to be the Idaho knitter on this shawl. I was so excited when I learned it was on its way to me. I am knitting this shawl in honor of my dear friend Becky who showed me how a real woman handles such adversity. She always had a positive attitude; she smiled constantly; she went to work every day while taking care of her children and her household; she had complete faith that she would be healed. After her chemo, radiation, and mastectomy, she said that having breast cancer had brought her so many blessings thqat she would not otherwise have had.

I am knitting in the hope that daughters and granddaughters will never have to face this trial.

The shawl visited the Field of Heroes during the Memorial Day holiday.
