Cancer Capes

Turns out Kitty Hall-Harmon of our Winchester, KY, chapter is not the only one with the "cape idea."

 

A "snowbird" named Jeanne sews for QFK while in Florida, but back home in Wisconsin, she makes Cancer Capes for kids aged 3 to 8 at St. Vincent Hospital Treatment Centers.  Each cape is personalized with the child's initial and hospital staff add patches for milestones like "last chemo," "in remission," "happy birthday,"  or "I got my hair back!"

 

And guess what happens to the leftover fabric...it gets cut into squares for quilts, of course.

    Awesome!! Jeanne is a wonderful seamstress! I wish I was so talented. She comes up with amazing ideas such as a purse she made last summer and was auctioned off for QFK at River Hall CC. There is a wonderful group of ladies that quilt and do other wonderful things for the kids! Cheers to all of them!!

    Jeanne Treml is a very hard-working member of the Lehigh Acres/River Hall chapter in Florida. We love to see what she will bring us when she returns each season.
