Host A Crafting for Cancer Event

Gather your organization, family, and or friends together and have some helping to spread cheer to cancer patients through your personalized Crafting for Cancer activities. NO CRAFTING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! If you are able to tie a knot, attach a sticker, write an encouraging note, or even bag candy you are qualified.

We come to you and bring items for your group to make no-sew blankets, pocket crosses, encouraging notes, and mugs or water bottles designed by you.  Completed items will be added to  our Hope & Comfort Kits donated to cancer patients at local infusion centers.
