2 Bags Full. You can read all about it at her beautiful blog! I can't believe a year as gone by so quickly. I had some great friends here in my little town as well as other places over the country and globe contribute beautiful scarves. Some were purchased by folks who, like me(!), don't knit or crochet. Most of the scarves I received however, were hand made. So thoughtful, so beautiful. Here is just an example:
Starkey Hollow was diagnosed last year with breast cancer and hearing about this project to make and give scarves to breast cancer patients really hit home. I decided to jump on this bandwagon. It was my way of supporting Donna and others going through treatment. Well, the month of October was the deadline to hand these beauties out. Vicki asked Donna to give them out where she had her treatments. I gave some to our hospital last week and the Cleveland Clinic, Wooster Ohio, will receive them also. I made arrangements with our outpatient department where the chemo treatments are given, to hand them out. They were really excited to participate. I contacted our hospital public relations person about it also and she had our local newspaper contact me. The reporter came and interviewed Donna and me and did a great job of reporting! I gave him a photo of 2 of our nurses from outpatient, Jenny and Kathy, accepting the scarves.
