Ovarian Cancer Quilt Auction

Last year my brother was a patient at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. He brought this auction to my attention today.

From the website:

“The Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project was established to educate the public about the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer through the artistry of quilting.

The 2015 Online Quilt Auction will benefit the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Through innovative research, this program aims to develop effective screening methods and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.”

Bidding began October 21 and ends November 4, 2015. 184 quilts were donated to this year’s auction. The auction is held every 2 years so the next one will be 2017.

Please visit the project website to see the quilts being offered and for more information about the project and how you can help.
