Happy faces as I delivered 76 heart pillows to the Cancer Support Community/Benjamin Center while they were celebrating a Valentine’s Day lunch. Eight friends and I gathered earlier in the week for a workshop to cut, stitch, sew and stuff heart pillows that aids breast cancer patients. The pressure of the pillow when placed under an arm helps in recovery….plus it provides a “self hug”….and who doesn’t enjoy a hug when you are healing?
The nine of us call ourselves Las Fortunas. We like to find projects where we can work together to help others in need. In the past two years we have focused our efforts on making the heart pillows. We have donated almost 400 pillows.
The Cancer Support Community/Benjamin Center in West Los Angeles is a remarkable place offering free services to all cancer patients (all kinds) and their families. We are very pleased to support them.
