A group has
planned a fundraiser in April for her.

will be sold as well. If you can come
to the event, I know you will want to buy something. Her work is stunning.
If you are one
of Nancy’s long distance friends there is something you can do as well. Please keep her in your thoughts. You can leave messages here on this
blog post and you can mail a card to her at the hospital.
