Supporting Cancer Survivors at Quail Creek
During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month takes place, serving as a dedicated time to raise awareness and show support for individuals affected by breast cancer. At Quail Creek, a Tucson-area active adult community, the Needlework Club plays a valuable role in supporting cancer survivors. They focus their efforts on providing knitted knockers and cancer hats to those who have undergone cancer treatment.
Knitted Knockers for Comfort and Support
Club members handcraft Knitted Knockers, special breast prostheses designed for women who have undergone mastectomies or other breast procedures. Traditional prosthetics, which can often be expensive, heavy, sweaty, and uncomfortable. However, Knitted Knockers offer a softer and more comfortable alternative. With a variety of sizes available that can be customized for a perfect fit, they provide support and restore confidence. The best part is that they are provided free of charge to Quail Creek residents.
Cozy Chemo Hats for Cooler Weather
As the weather turns cooler, the Needlework Club also offers soft, stretchy handmade chemo hats. These hats are designed to provide warmth and comfort to cancer survivors undergoing chemotherapy treatment. They are also available free of charge to Quail Creek residents, ensuring that they have the support they need during their cancer journey.
