The Cancer Awareness Event has always been one that I feel the need to participate in. Cancer has personally touched my life several times with several people. With my third year participation, I'm honoring my grandmother who was diagnosed a few days after last year's event. I hope this Breast Cancer Beanie Crochet Pattern brings a little comfort to those effected by this cancer.
