HEART TO HEART
Handmade Pillows for Breast Cancer Patients
Comforting Breast Cancer Patients — One Stitch at a Time.
Do you like to help others? Do you like to make things? Do you like to sew? At Heart to Heart events, we make heart-shaped pillows and drainage bags that have been specially designed to be used by breast cancer patients. The pillows have a unique heart-shaped form that, when placed under the arm, is helpful in making the patient more comfortable. The drainage bags are small bags with long straps that are used to store patient's surgical drainage bags, freeing up the patient's hands. Even if you can't sew, there are lots of ways for you to help!
All pillows will be donated to breast cancer patients at our partner hospital: Sana Hospital in Düsseldorf-Gerresheim
Annual Goal: 300 to 400 pillows by October
Tax receipts for donations are available from the Club Treasurer.
