Look through a handful of quilt panels in the Quilt for Life. You see birthdate, then diagnosis date -- the date a life changed forever.
We wondered what families do on this date. Some have reported doing something fun for their child, some are overcome with emotion even years later, some don't do anything.
One-quarter of our readers report commemorating the day and doing something fun. Almost two-thirds -- 62% -- don't commemorate, for various reasons. This is essentially the same as last year.
