Dozens designed squares for Quilt for the Cure

Community

The month of October is all about Breast Cancer awareness.

Jim Robinson Ford celebrated its 10th Annual Quilt for a Cure and the 25th year for Warriors in Pink.

These quilts are a message to help those battling breast cancer.

People could come in and design a square for a friend, relative, themself or someone who has touched their life who has breast cancer. 

Kathy Blass who was presented with one the Warrior Quits said she felt so humbled and honored that she was a recipient of such a magnificent quilt.

“This event is so important for the Ohio Valley because it provides the Awareness that Breast Cancer needs in our Valley,” said Blass, who is President of Ohio Valley Breast Cancer Awareness INC. “It also inspires and encourages breast cancer fighters that are going through the actual disease right now.”

Jim Robinson said there is a lot of love that goes into making these quilts and they are designed for encouragement for people dealing with this disease and for their families as well.

“It’s just a great opportunity to do something little that in a lot of lives becomes really big,” said Robinson, who is Dealer Principal of Jim Robinson Ford. 

“I encourage anyone who wants to do more for the cause, this is breast cancer awareness month starting today and if more people would step up and just do a little bit more it would make a lot different to many people,” added volunteer quilter at Quilt for the Cure Helen Carson. 

Wheeling Hospital has received two quilts. The Teramana Cancer Center, Weirton Medical Center and Trinity have all received one quilt.

If you did not get a chance to stop by and design a square don’t worry you have until Wednesday to head over to Jim Robinson Ford and make one during store hours.
