The Women’s Service League collected lap blankets, scarves and hats during the month of October for people undergoing cancer treatment. In all, the group donated 36 blankets, 76 scarves and 20 hats to the Bothwell Foundation to be distributed to cancer patients at the Susan O’Brien Fischer Cancer Center at Bothwell Regional Health Center.
League members leading the drive were Kristie Schear, left, Jen Pinkel, Janet Vincent, Lori Swearingen and Rebecca Moss. The items are important because cancer patients often have trouble regulating their body temperature and are cold due to weight loss and hair loss during treatment. Photo submitted.
