Zoe Wants to Help Make This One

IMG_1847We were making this blanket for a person that our dog Zoe adores.  While we were making the blanket, she jumped up on the chair and watched us tie every single knot.  We couldn’t believe it because she has never jumped up on one of these chairs before.  We she think she sensed who we are making it for and wanted to be part of it.   So sweet!

 

What People Are Saying About Our Blankets

“Ordinary people doing extraordinary deeds… that’s how I describe the ‘Get Cozy During Chemo’ project”  –Patty, Founder of Layers of Love

“You don’t know me, which makes this thank you note all the more special.  I want to thank you for the beautiful blanket you to me to use during my chemotherapy.  That you’d do something so kind for someone you don’t know tells me a lot about you.  I know a little about your mom (from her blog) and I figure some of her awesomeness must have rubbed off on you.  I hope your kindness brings you all hte goodness in the world.  You certainly deserve it!”  -Deb Sherman

“My name is Lynne and my husband Michael has a rare ‘one in a million’ blood cancer that is in 75% of his bone marrow.  This week, we received a blanket from you. It literally brought tears to our eyes. We just want you to know that your hard work and love is felt all the way to Canada. You sure made a difference to us. Your generosity and kindness is overwhelmingly beautiful. We received the blanket in the mail, and it was like CHRISTMAS. Michael just completed his 8th round of chemo, and he had that blanket on him in about 5 seconds flat. LOL!  Thank you soooooo much for sending. You are a beautiful soul and we are so very grateful.”  -Lynne & Michael

“The blankets arrived today in Milwaukee and they are beautiful. Thank you so much. I have already started to give them to my patients who are so touched by your kindness and generosity. Thank you again for making my patient’s lives a little bit better.  Thank you and God bless.  -Dr. Mike Bishop, Director, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program at University of Chicago Medicine

“You won’t always know how much of a difference this project is making.  But you should be proud of what you are doing, and I can’t thank you enough for bringing it to our Shaare Torah community.” –Rabbi Jacob, Shaare Torah

“Receiving this blanket opened the door to talking about my son’s chemo treatments.  We are all so scared about his upcoming treatments and the future, but are feeling so blessed to be supported by so many wonderful members of the community!”  –Mom of a 10 year son w/ cancer

“The chemo blanket that you made for me is absolutely beautiful and looks and feels like professionals have done it! Every time I have chemo, I bring it with me. Words cannot express how grateful I am to you.  Not only is my chemo blanket gorgeous, but it is soooooo warm and it is all I need to keep me cozy during treatment.”  -Debbie

“Thank you very much for making these blankets.  I was a recipient of one of the beautiful blankets today at the Cooper Group Infusion Center in NJ.  They rolled in a BIG cart full of blankets and I chose the zebra stripe and pink one.  It was such a blessing!  Your kindness and thoughtfulness meant a lot to me and the other cancer patients.  Thank you!” –Kelly

“This blanket is really beautiful!  I have a rare cancer called angiosarcoma, a cancer of the blood vessels.  I have been getting chemotherapy for 14 months and still have more to go.  As much as your blanket will warm my body, more importantly it has warmed my heart.  Thank you for your love and support as I continue to fight against this terrible disease.”  -Dara
