Many of you remember Lexie's Bracelet
My friend, Melanie Horris, came to me in the late fall of 2007 and asked if I could make a bracelet that we could sell to raise money for her DFMC Boston Marathon run. (Dana Farber Marathon Challenge)
Funny how you remember things, but we put our heads together and (fairly quickly) came up with the above bracelet. Lexie Williams was Melanie's patient partner in 2008 and we asked her to give meaning to the various colors: Light blue for a Cure; Rosaline (pink) for Love; White for Hope; Light gray for Courage; and Mauve (purple) for Lexie. (her favorite color)
More than a few of you have one of these bracelets. Many thanks!
I still get lots of questions about Lexie. How is she doing? etc. I'm happy to report that she is doing well.
Now 16, she has written a cook book entitled Lexie's Gift, a cookbook for kids living with cancer. It is filled with healthy but tasty recipes that anyone can eat even if you do not have cancer.
Last week, my friend, Melanie gave me an autographed copy. It is absolutely beautiful. I have not had time to read it through but I did see some great recipes I'm going to try soon. They are well researched and photographed. A real work of (very useful) art!
If you would like to have one let me know. The book will be available on Amazon in the near future but in the mean time, I've been told Lexie would like to autograph any books people would like. So here is your chance.
Send me an email if you are interested.
I will see to it that you will get your autographed copy to enjoy.
For those who aren't familiar with Lexie, here is an old post where I talk more about her.
