Porphyria Awareness Purses

One of my first projects of the year was a set of purses to help raise money for my friend's liver transplant fund. She has struggled with Acute Intermittent Porphyria, a genetic blood disorder for half her life, first becoming symptomatic as a teenager. She's been hospitalized numerous times due to attacks,  and undergoes weekly treatments. She's one of the strongest people I know, and I'm so excited for her that she's gotten the approval for a liver transplant that will cure her of her symptoms and allow her to lead a healthier, more normal life.
