In January 2010, cancer struck a family member. During the long "cleansing" affair , synthetic fabric was uncomfortable. Cotton was the only wearable material. As part of the therapy treatment at a local Cancer Support Foundation, quilting became the new passion.

We made numerous lap quilts and bed quilts for all the members of our family in our early months. Joann's Fabric store became the favorite spot, furthering interest in quilting.  

The cancer experience motivated our social network to make quilts and distribute it to individuals undergoing cancer treatment at various medical facilities. Thus, CareQuilts was born in August 2011.

CareQuilts is a non profit 501 (c) (3) incorporated in the State of California, and is a 100% volunteer run organization.
