AWCH donates “From the Heart Pillows” to the Mariahilf Helios Hospital 2017

Heart pillow cutoutsIn 2017, the AWCH donated 100 heart pillows to the Mariahilf Breast Cancer Clinic in Harburg, just south of the Elbe. The pillows were made in February and November during “working bee” open houses in Tracy M.’s home. Over 25 members of the AWCH have been working on the From the Heart Pillow Projectfor several years. To date we have donated over 300 pillows that have been made during five different From the Heart Pillow Sewing Bees. These pillows in the shape of a heart are placed under the arm that helps relieve pressure and pain in post-operative breast cancer patients. Materials and stuffing costs can run quite high, and thus far all materials have been purchased through proceeds from the Bagel Fundraiser Sales and through donations by club members. The AWCH has been a consistent financial supporter of this project.  We would like to extend our thanks to all the working bee women and our supporters for their effort and commitment to the “From the Heart Pillow Project”.
