For the Ladies who make the Heart Pillows
Pictures by Marit Bell and Helen Van Driel
Every fourth Monday of each month with the exception of July, August and December, a group of energetic retired ladies (members of the Fieldway Retirees' Club) devote themselves to the making of Heart Pillows. The reason for this? to provide comfort for persons who have had heart surgery and experience pain from post-operative coughing. The relief comes from the patient holding the pillow closely against the area where the surgery was done.
The finished pillows are taken to the Trillium Hospital. The Hospital then distributes the Pillows to Heart patients.
A very worthwhile endeavour, don’t you think?
The following label accompanies each pillow
Best Wishes for a
speedy recovery, From the bottom of our Heart!
