The maternity nurses were just as thrilled with our donations and said they LOVE it when we drop off hats to them. One of the nurses immediately gave a Mom who was getting ready to return home, a shamrock hat knitted by Jan but exchanged it for a larger hat since the baby's head was big.
This was a very positive donation day for Jean and I and we extend out thanks to all of you who contributed to this delivery.
Barbara decided to donate 12 chemo port cushions and 7 chemo hats to Epic Care in Dublin. It is a lovely radiation/chemotherapy center, off Dublin Blvd, in Dublin.
The person in charge of the chemo section was ecstatic when I brought in my donations! With her permission, she introduced me to a patient who was having chemo and who was in a bit of pain because her port had just been implanted. The ladies eyes lit up and was so happy to get this pillow! She said it would help relieve the pain she does experience when the seat belt hits that spot. She agreed to a picture which is attached! A very gratifying experience for both of us!
