October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Comments off 272 Views0

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Timeless Pillows offers beautiful pillows to comfort and celebrate women.

This October, Timeless Pillows.com is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.

If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

The Celebration Fashion Show in Chico, California, supports the local breast cancer community.next Unknown

The Celebration Foundation is dedicated to supporting the local breast cancer community by providing an inspirational and empowering showcase of the beauty, grace and resilience of life beyond breast cancer. Forty women (and also men!) who have experienced the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer will model and will be the stars of the next show in September 2019. Although the funds are being raised by breast cancer survivors, they want to share access to the funds with patients being treated for any type of cancer. The first Celebration, in 2009, raised $10,500 for three local cancer organizations. The second Celebration in 2012, raised $16,000 toward the Enloe Compassion Fund to benefit local cancer patients who need special assistance and have exhausted all other resources.

Pillow Gift for Breast Cancer Survivor is the Perfect Gift

No Comments 957 Views0

TimelessPillows.com supports non-profit organizations( ACS- Relay for Life. and The Celebration, Chico, CA) that assist women with breast cancer. The purpose is to bring joy, comfort and assistance Timeless Pillows oct_2013_v2-16to women who are surviving breast cancer.  The American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) suggests several ideas for being a friend to someone with cancer.  Because many patients are recuperating at home between medical treatments, the home environment should be as peaceful, organized, and comforting as possible. Patients who feel emotional support from family and friends can experience an increase in healing.  The power of friendship and love cannot be overestimated.  What are some practical suggestions that will help family and Timeless Pillows oct_2013_v2-15friends support and nurture loved ones with cancer?

1.  Stay in touch through cards, notes, and short, planned visits. If you say you are going to visit, make sure to follow through with those promises.

2.  Help with home tasks that drain energy from the patient.  This can include doing errands, providing meals or organizing neighbors and friends for regular meal support, taking care of gardening or bringing over supplies for pets.

3. Provide gifts that are useful, lovely, and nurturing. This can include a favorite DVD or music CD, special toiletries that are perfume-free, poems, and organic and healthy snacks in a basket. If you choose a music CD, select music that is healing and relaxing. Daniel Kobialka’s versions of classical pieces are excellent examples.

4. Provide soft fabrics for the patient’s bed or sofa area.  This can include a soft throw, special pillow, and warm, soft socks. A Timeless Pillow is unique in that it has 2 different fabrics so each side is like having a new pillow.

5. Talk with other friends and family members to coordinate efforts over time.  It’s best to visit when you know that the patient has the energy for company.

6. TimelessPillows.com offers lovely pillows for comfort and caring that can be given to either a male or female patient.  For a patient recuperating from breast cancer surgery, a Timeless Pillow is especially appropriate and helpful.  A pillow gift will last for many years.  An ice pack can also be inserted into the pillow for comfort after surgery.

Love is medicine.  Help bring healing to those you love through heartfelt efforts.  The immune system can be strengthened  through the positive energy expressed through friendship and caring.

We recommend reading Bernie S. Siegel’s book, Love, Medicine and Miracles, for a tremendous guide to helping others find “a life of peace, love, and healing.”  Bernie’s desire is to make everyone aware of his or her healing potential.

Gifts for Breast Cancer Patients: Quotations of Comfort

No Comments 972 Views0

Timeless Pillows oct_2013_v2-16 What is a good gift for a woman diagnosed with breast cancer? A good gift for a woman diagnosed with breast cancer, a woman going through cancer treatment or recovering from surgery, is a gift that provides strong emotional support.  Friends want to be supportive but may not know what to do.  First, be a good listener. Sometimes the best gift is the gift of providing encouragement by listening to your friend as she is experiencing fear and possible exhaustion from the cancer experience.

The gift of a Timeless Pillow is in itself an expression of caring and thoughtfulness. Why is a pillow a wonderful gift for a breast cancer patient? A pillow  provides comfort and softness and can aid in the healing process by being a close reminder of the friend who gave it.

Timeless Pillows offers a number of wonderful quotations to add to the pillow gift for a breast cancer patient.  When we are at a loss for the right words to say to someone we love and care about, there are some wonderful quotations that may help you when needing those certain words on the card that accompanies your Timeless Pillow purchase.  Here are some wonderful quotations especially suited to accompany the pillow gift for the woman healing from breast cancer.

“Open your heart, fling your hopes high, set your dreams aloft. I am here to hold your hand.”   Maya Angelou

“Believe with all your heart that how you live your life makes a difference.”  Colin Beavan

“Sing your song, dream your dream, hope your hope and pray your prayer.”  P. Beatty

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” Thich Nhat Hanh

“My heart is ever at your service.”  William Shakespeare

“Let nothing dim the light that shines from within.”  Maya Angelou

Heartfelt Gifts for Cancer Patients

No Comments 814 Views0

Timeless Pillows oct_2013_v2-13When someone close to us is diagnosed with cancer, we are often at a loss of how to help in a caring and thoughtful manner. It’s nice to give flowers, but they do not last more than a few days.  When you are close to someone who is going through treatment, you realize how important a gift of comfort and encouragement is. Timeless Pillows offers the perfect gift – a comfort pillow that is beautiful yet practical, and will long be appreciated.

No other product on the market is designed more carefully to meet the needs of women who are struggling with breast cancer or in need of comfort. Terry Matthews, author of Cancer! The Adventure of Your Life, shares this idea for women going through cancer treatment: “Consider pampering your inner child, who may be pretty upset by all this indignity. I found that bringing along a small teddy bear to hold with my free hand helped a lot!…You may prefer to bring …a small charm, or a photo, but whatever you choose, you are acting to preserve your sense of self” (p. 122-123).  We recommend this book by Terry Matthews for any woman diagnosed with cancer.

The founder of Timeless Pillows, Terri, found inspiration from her experience in 2008 with a diagnosis that affects 1 in 8 women every year, the diagnosis of breast cancer. A dear friend gave Terri the gift of a teddy bear that she took with her to radiation treatments as something to hold onto and be comforted by. She discovered that it is often recommended to take a soft plush animal with you when you are in radiation treatments or at the infusion center as an object that adds a sense of softness/caring in a very sterile and difficult environment.

Surrounded by family and friends, Terri had the good fortune of making a full recovery and the inspiration for the line of Timeless Pillows was born. While the Teddy Bear was an amazing gift, Terri recognized that not every woman would feel comfortable carrying a stuffed animal to the treatment center, but a lovely pillow might be another story. Terri began to use vintage linen with pink ribbon trims on a prototype pillow for the purpose of blessing the women in her life with a gift that truly spoke of compassion and comfort during their journey. As Terri has noted over her time creating these unique gifts, she is not sure who appreciates the gift more, the one who receives it, or the one who sends it.

To have a gift that actually conveys your heart to a friend….that’s magical.  It truly makes a difference in the journey toward recovery.
