The Desert Quilters Guild once again is doing something nice for others.
This time the nimble-fingered members of the guild are donating quilts to the Imperial Valley Cancer Center in El Centro. Linda Britschgi of Holtville is in charge of the project.
"When people have (chemotherapy treatment) some of them have to sit there as long as three or four hours," Britschgi said. "It gets cold with the air conditioning. The quilt is just a cover-up to keep them from being uncomfortable. They are already uncomfortable from having cancer."
That uncomfortable feeling is something quite familiar to Britschgi, a cancer patient. She just finished seven weeks of radiation treatment after six months of chemotherapy.
