New Threads of Hope Group Formed at PCSH
Anyone in our community with an interest in any type of needlework is invited
to join Threads of Hope, a new group formed at the Peitz Cancer Support
House (PCSH) of BRMC. Attendees may knit, crochet, sew, quilt or do any
type needlework - or may just want to learn how!
The group provides different things to different people. Cancer survivors
may learn a craft to help pass the time between or after treatments. For
some, it may provide a way to give support to others, even if theyandrsquo;re
not a cancer survivor; for others it may be for enjoyment and friendship.
The group may make lap robes and shawls that are distributed to patients
in treatment or items crafted may be donated to the PCSH. The group offers
lots of encouragement and support as attendees spend time at their weekly
meetings, and they may just learn a new stitch or two!
Threads of Hope meets every Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. at the PCSH, located
just across Hospital Drive from the Cline Emergency Center entrance of
BRMC. For more information about Threads of Hope, call the PCSH at (870)
508-CARE (2273) or email Melissa Hudson, PCSH Coordinator, at
