Quilts for Kids

The MSP Quilting Angels of Germatown Maryland, support Quilts for Kids through the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer foundation.

Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 12,400 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. About one in 300 boys and one in 333 girls will develop cancer before their 20th birthday. In 1998, about 2500 died of cancer, thus making cancer the most common cause of death by disease for children and adolescents in America.

Every month we have a Block of the Month, where we ask readers like you to to make one or several blocks and send them to us to be made into Quilts for Kids or Quilts of Valor. To learn more about how YOU can help a child with cancer or a wounded warrior, please visit:
