They fly in the mail, by plane or truck, from state to state, from hand to hand, from heart to heart!
These wonderful, warm bed coverings have become more than something to keep us comfortable on a cold winter night. They are something much more meaningful to our organization and those we love than we can fully explain in these few words.
Maurrie is a quilter and the idea of sending quilts to members who were undergoing tough times, difficult medical treatments and recovery came to her several years ago.
She and other quilting Sisters began making, restoring and shopping for these quilts in earnest when we learned of Sisters who were undergoing cancer treatment. Many of our quilting sisters donated quilt tops. We wrap our arms around the recipients with loving quilts keep them safe and warm and comforted.
These stayed with the girls while they were in treatment and while they recovered. Then they were returned to us to be prepared for their next hoped- for life-saving mission. Over time we have sent more than 200 quilts to our Sisters.
As the practice of sending a comfort quilt became more known we began to learn of others, not always Sisters, and not always women, who would benefit from having a warm quilt hug.
The quilts have created a lot of conversation among the caregivers and treatment providers as well. They give the people who receive them an opportunity to talk about the love behind the quilt and the hundreds of women thinking about them and praying for their recovery.
