Day one at Oakland Mall.  Its kind of a blur because I was so tired, but we met Shelley the mall Marketing Director and her assistant, Stacy, they were both very nice.  A reporter and photographer from the Troy Times came and interviewed me for a while, and Tim from Troy Patch came as well.  I haven’t seen their articles yet, but when I do, I’ll post them here.  We had a good day despite being tired. The folks in Troy are very kind-hearted people and the quilt was well received.  It was great to be able to share the kids on the quilt, and educate people about the facts and statistics for childhood cancer.  Andrew Smith’s family came to see his panel on the quilt.  We could tell right away which angel they came to visit because the family resemblance was pretty strong!  It was great to meet them.
One of my favorite things in Oakland Mall is the Toll House kiosk.  Luckily, it was right by the quilt.
An interesting note about Oakland Mall: there is a group of retired men who spend time there together, and one by one over the course of the day, each of them came by and made donations to kids cancer research.
