We have donated more than $250,000 to the ACS.


It's personal, of course. My Dad is a colon cancer survivor.

My sister was chair of the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, in Forest Lake, MN for ten years and I founded Fiberart For A Cause as a team to raise funds for our Relay. I consider each sponsor and donor a part of our team and very much appreciate your support and generosity.

It has become a family affair for us with three generations working
and having fun at the annual Relay.
