Post-op Breast Cancer Pillows

Our Stake Relief Society (church) had an event on Saturday. Ladies came in from all over Nashville to participate in classes and have a delightful lunch. The service project was making breast cancer surgery post-op pillows for the Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Center. I was asked to organize it and we had a very good response. In about 60-90 minutes we managed to make 191 pillows. Another 70+ are in process.

Want to see what that number looks like ? There's 13 in each sack. All of the supplies were donated.


There was a lot of interest in doing the service project again so we just have to get that organized. Next time round we plan on taking a bit longer so that everyone can work at a slightly slower pace :)

Something to think about - The Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Center performs 34-68 breast cancer related surgeries per month. http://www.vanderbilthealth.com/breastcenter/
