Sewers, Quilters, and Material Needed for New CRC Projects!

When someone goes through chemotherapy treatment for cancer it can affect them in many ways from the physical to the social to the emotional. At the Cancer Resource Center, we try to support individuals who are experiencing the many side effects of cancer treatment. One way we do this is by providing head scarfs, wigs, and hats for those who experience hair loss, and quilted tote bags to carry their belongings to treatment.

We are recruiting experienced sewers & quilters who would like to make beautiful head scarfs and tote bags for our clients. We have a sample of the scarf (we are looking for someone to help us make a pattern for it) and we have some ideas for how we would like the tote bags to look. If you are interested in sewing or would like to make a donation of material for this project, please contact Fran Spadafora Manzella, Associate Director.

Cancer Research Meeting at the Cornell Vet School, Hagan Room

Everyone is welcome. Researchers, students, clients & members of the public all attend on a regular basis. If you'd like a ride from CRC to Cornell, call Bob 277-0960
