Beads of Courage - Lyla

Dear Mr. Robinette, 

Many thanks to the MN Woodturners for their donation of jars to the Children's Hospital Beads of Courage Program. 

My daughter Lyla, 5, recently finished her second year-long course of chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer. She loves her beads and they have a place of honor in our home. Having such a beautiful vessel in which to store them makes them even more special. 

I thought you might enjoy this photo of Lyla's beds in her jar. Please pass on our sincere thanks to your members -- especially Gordon Fay who made Lyla's piece -- for the beautiful, artful  contribution to this program to encourage our little fighter. You've made a special day even more special.
