Stories for book for cancer patients

Bangor -

BANGOR, Maine — Comforting Blankets is putting the finishing touches on a book about and for cancer patients. If anyone could please help out with a story or a poem about themselves or a family member going through cancer treatment. Please help with giving other cancer patients information about what to except, how family and friends can help out. A little about yourself, saying thank you to your family. Just a few ideas. If you would like to be part of our book, please email your story or poem to bdumond@comfortingblankets.org or mail to Comforting Blankets 121 Gilman rd. Bangor, Me 04401. Please send your story no later then September 9, 2011. All proceeds from the book will go to Comforting Blankets to purchase new blankets for cancer patients, purchase material that we use for our kids make a difference too project. We work with some of the local schools and colleges to show that kids can make a difference too.
The book will be for sale at our fundraiser on Oct. 22 at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor. The event will be all day long, with craft/trade vendors and during the evening we will have a Gala, which will have an auction, dinner and dancing. Thank you for your support and hope to hear from you soon and see you on Oct. 22.
