As some of you may know I suffer from Pseudotumor cerebri or Intracranial Hypertension. This condition is often misdiagnosed as migraines. What it is is a build up of the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. It causes severe head pains as well as vision problems. If not treated it could cause blindness. I now have a shunt in my spine to help regulate fluid levels.
My daughter has an MRI tomorrow to see if she is afflicted with this problem as well. I am hoping she does not.
I digress..my reason for this post is to see if someone could help me. I would love to make a quilt that I could raffle off to help the research efforts to find the cause and cure for this condition. I wanted to make a center block of about 24" finished for the middle of the quilt with the awareness symbol-however I do not applique nor do I embroider. My question to you all is there anyone here who could or would be willing to applique the center with the words Intracranial Hypertension embroidered on the outer side? I do not nead the head that is in the attached picture just the ribbon and the outer circle with the words. I would supply all of the fabric and the thread for the embroidery of the words as well. I would be willing to either pay someone to do this or to trade out material or something.
I hope I am not out of line asking it is just something I feel I need to do. There are not enough people afflicted with this condition (or properly diagnosed) for them to actually get any kind of governmental funding to research it.
Thank you all for your time!
