Beading for a Cure (BFAC)
Layne's Legacy - Beading For A Cure is a non-profit 510(c)3 registered charity founded in honor of Layne Shilling, a beader who lost her battle with colorectal cancer in November 2002. Each year, participants purchase an identical kit containing a variety of beads. At least one of each bead must be used in the finished project and the bead artist can only add one other type of bead to the project. The completed projects are then auctioned off on eBay each March. Resulting proceeds are donated to the National Colorectal Cancer Research Association in Layne's name.
Other completed 2009 projects can be viewed at http://www.beadingforacure.org/gallery09/gallery09.html
