Jeannie Dank Coleman
Our friend and Quilt For a Cause, Inc. co-founder, Jeannie Dank Coleman passed away on Monday, August 21, 2017. Jeannie was a talented quilter and a breast cancer survivor who had the vision to use her skills and experiences to help other women fighting gynecologic cancers and anyone fighting breast cancer. She challenged and inspired others to join her. Over the years, thousands of quilters have responded by creating and donating beautiful quilts. The sale and auction of these quilts, along with generous community and private support has made an impact on the Tucson community.
In its 15-year history, QFaC has raised and donated over $850,000 to fight breast and gynecologic cancers in Tucson, and Jeannie’s dream is still going strong and growing. QFaC funds assist women’s cancer programs at Tucson Medical Center, St. Elizabeth’s Health Center, and other Tucson non-profit agencies serving those with breast and gynecologic cancer.
