Please visit http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/katherinebarnard. This is a website developed by an eleven year old child who was diagnosed with brain cancer on October 26, and her mother. The following is a quote from an e-mail from her father: "After a craniotomy to remove as much of the tumor as possible, she started radiation and chemotherapy on Wed November 28, 2007 at the University of South Alabama in Mobile.

As part of her home bound school project she is asking people to sign her guestbook and has a large map where she is tracking where people write from. I know it may be asking a lot, but if you would consider signing with a short note of encouragement it would mean a great deal. She reads these postings several times a day and it does a lot for her mood."

I know that knitters are some of the most generous people on earth, and I immediately thought of my friends here at KH. Please take a moment to visit her site and leave a note. She is trying to get a post from every state in the US. Imagine her surprise when she hears from people not only from all over the US, but the world as well :)

Thank you in advance for each of you who take the time to do this. I believe love and encouragement to be powerful "medicine"!
