State Representative Doug Green (R-Mt. Orab) invited Sherylene Crocker, Dawn Mitchell and Lois Mitchell to the Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio to discuss how the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Clermont County is helping cancer patients and families in his district.
Crocker is a survivor of cancer and has gone through many years of cancer treatment. In her fight against cancer she has been the keeper of the quilts to promote cancer awareness.
Crocker’s most recent quilt, called the Survivor’s Ladder Signature Quilt, is hanging outside Green’s office. The front of the quilt has signatures of cancer survivors and for those paying tribute to loved ones who have passed away. The back of the quilt has signatures of care givers.
Crocker is grateful to the Quilting Ministry of the Williamsburg United Methodist Church who kindly agreed to sew the quilt. The quilt helps draw attention to the emotional support cancer patients and families need while going through treatment.
“There are not enough words that I can express how very honored, as well as humbled, to have Representative Green be a champion for my presentation of the Survivor’s Signature Ladder Quilt. I really appreciate all of Representative Green’s knowledge and his friendship, but most of all he has made me realize that I am not alone in this fight against cancer,” Crocker said.
