This article focuses on The Quilt: A Breast Cancer Support Project, an ongoing project in Canada which provides a unique opportunity to express support through the donation or purchase of a quilt, as of October 2005. The idea for the project occurred to project founder Carol Miller when she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 1997. The plan of Miller was to solicit quilt donations from across Canada, to sell these quilts at auction and then direct the proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast-cancer support programs.
