Cancer survivor donates T-shirt sales to Glory, Hope & Life

Three-time cancer survivor Heidi Ferguson donated a $1,300 check to Glory, Hope & Life last month for its efforts in supporting cancer patients and their families.

The money was raised through the sale of “Hope for Heidi” T-shirts created by Ferguson’s friend Kathleen Brown. Brown of Dot Dot Goose painted Bible verses Ferguson had posted on her Facebook during her cancer battle in the shape of a cross. Brown also painted “Hope for Heidi” down the shirts’ long sleeves.

The shirts were the idea of Ferguson’s friend Stephanie Butler, who took care of orders and delivery of the shirts. Shirts were sold through Longstreet Cancer Center and word of mouth.
