Pillow Making Marathon Benefits Cancer Patients
A local cancer support group, Fill a Heart with Hope, is holding a pillow making marathon. The group creates specially designed “heart” pillows that are used to support patients who have breast or underarm surgery, and special “cough” pillows for patients who have undergone abdominal or chest surgery. Everyone is invited to participate in the marathon. Non-sewing participants may assist with cutting, ironing, stuffing and other needs.
