Sewing Sloths 5/29/17

Cutting out the sloths. 
Sewing the sloth body. 
Sewing sloth toes. 
Sewing on the arms. 

We are busy making sloths. Our next trip to MD Anderson is next weekend. I’ve been sewing and Robbie has been stuffing them. He is excited about his project and is looking forward to giving away the first sloths.

Sloth Project and Sloth Sock Directions May 27, 2017

The Sloth Project has started! We are making sloths for kids with cancer. Instructions on how to make a sock sloth and additional information are on this website. http://slothscurecancer.weebly.com/

If you are interested in joining our project, you can give sloths to children at your local hospital or send sloths to us and we will donate them to children fighting cancer. Donating locally was a great idea from someone that follows Robbie’s blog. This will allow more children to be reached. Robbie’s goal is to make someone smile that is fighting cancer and give families hope.

He is following in the footsteps of his grandmother that donated hundreds of homemade dolls over the years to children in the hospital and children in orphanages. If she were alive, she would be helping us and the sewing would be a 100 times better. I should have listened better during all her sewing instructions.

Robbie gathering more supplies for the Sloth Project this week at Hobby Lobby.

Last year, Robbie still needed a walker or wheelchair to get around.

Sloth Project for Kids with Cancer 5/24/17 Updated

Robbie recently asked if he could give sloths to kids fighting cancer. We decided to start a  “Sloths for Kids with Cancer” Project. Make one for yourself and make one to give to a child with cancer. You can mail them to us and we will donate them to children with cancer or you can deliver the sloth(s) to a child or children in a hospital near you. My son came up with this idea as a way to brighten the day for kids with cancer. He is fighting Osteosarcoma and knows how hard it is for kids with cancer. <!– /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Cambria Math"; panose-1:0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0; mso-font-charset:1; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-format:other; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:0 0 0 0 0 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin-top:0in; margin-right:0in; margin-bottom:8.0pt; margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ascii-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi; color:#323948; mso-themecolor:text2; mso-themetint:230; mso-fareast-language:JA;} p.MsoBlockText, li.MsoBlockText, div.MsoBlockText {mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; margin-top:0in; margin-right:0in; margin-bottom:19.0pt; margin-left:0in; line-height:135%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:14.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ascii-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi; color:#323948; mso-themecolor:text2; mso-themetint:230; mso-fareast-language:JA; mso-bidi-font-style:italic;} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {mso-style-priority:99; color:#36C0CA; mso-themecolor:hyperlink; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; color:#91669C; mso-themecolor:followedhyperlink; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-size:10.0pt; mso-ansi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-ascii-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi; color:#323948; mso-themecolor:text2; mso-themetint:230; mso-fareast-language:JA;} .MsoPapDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; margin-bottom:8.0pt; line-height:107%;} @page WordSection1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.0in 1.0in 1.0in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.WordSection1 {page:WordSection1;} –
You can join the project by making or buying sloths for kids with cancer. Or you can help gather materials for us. We use colorful men’s socks, felt of different colors especially brown, black, and tan…stuffing, and small buttons… I will post instructions on this website. http://slothscurecancer.weebly.com/
Feel free to share with your friends. I’ve had a few people ask. 
Thank you for supporting our son’s project!
You can email us at slothscurecancer@gmail.com
We would love to hear from you!

A Year Ago 5/8/17

A year ago it was Mother’s Day and Robbie started his final round of chemo. He was weak and was using a walker or longer distances he needed a wheelchair.  He has come so far in the past year. I’m praying that he continues to heal and be cancer free.
I’m reposting the video from last year. Thank you for all your support.
