Member FDIC lOO413 r Feather River Bulletin J Breast cancer survivors inspire quilt of hope Linda Satchwell Staff Writer What do you do when your boss tells you to take some time off and relax? Eastern Plumas Health Care's Direc- tor of Quality and Operations Teresa Whitfield's response to that suggestion was to go home and think about the hospital some more. The hospital isn't a job to her: it's a way of life. When she signed up for the quilting class that Feather River Col- lege holds at EPHC, a project evolved in her mind. During October Breast Cancer Awareness Month -- the hospital offers low-cost mammograms. Whitfield was talking with radiology staff about ways to make the "mammography experi- ence" more comfortable for patients. She has a colleague at the hospital whose wife is cur- rently undergoing treat- ment for breast cancer who thought .a quilt that promot- ed breast cancer awareness and honored those who had battled the disease would be a way to let those fight- ing breast cancer know "I don't know whether people realize how close to home breast cancer is. It touches almost )) everyone. Teresa Whitfleld Director of Quality and Operations, Eastern Plumas Health Care they're not alone. "I don't know whether peo- ple realize how close to home breast cancer is. It touches al- most everyone," she said. Whitfield found a pattern in a magazine for a memory quilt, and she decided to use it to add the names of cancer survivors and those still in treatment to her quilt. Whitfield made it her week- end mission to find fabric for her project. She found the pink fabric with the words "Love" and "Hope" on it, and thought it was a good place to start. She went to Homestead Fab- rics in Portola. The project was for the local community, and she wanted to support lo- cal businesses, as well.

The center of each square is a delicately folded origami design, and the chosen fab- rics complemented the de- sign perfectly. As Whitfield and her staff talk to breast cancer patients and survivors at the hospital, they ask if their iaames can be included on the quilt. One woman, in for a mam- mogram recently, remarked on the quilt. When she was told its purpose, she asked if she could be added. She's a seven-year survivor of breast cancer. So far, there are nine names on the quilt, eight in pink and the ninth in white. Whitfield called Claudia Wronker's son to see if he'd consent to have his mother's name included and, "He said it would be great." Wronker fought breast cancer successfully but had two other cancers, and lost her life to the third one. Whitfield sewed Wronker's name in white because "She's an angel," she said. Nurse Kathy Valladon is a seasoned quilter whose own quilts brighten a number of areas at the hospital. She did the binding on Whitfield's quilt. "It was nice to have a project to work on together," said Whitfield. Whitfield said her quilt is an attempt to connect with the local community and to note the significance of women who have battled this disease. Anyone wishing to add her name to the quilt should contact Teresa Whit- field, Director of Quality and Operations, twhit- or 832-6509.
