October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Comments off 537 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.

Vintage fabric from Hawaii for pillow gifts to share

Just located on Kauai, vintage Hawaiian cotton drapery-weight fabric is making up into beautiful pillows!  A real treasure of a piece of fabric not often seen.  Muted colors and exquisite design that will complement many different decors.  The era of this fabric is 1930’s-1940’s. This piece is in perfect condition. I am making pillows of this fabric now and know that these will go fast.  A wonderful pillow gift for any woman for birthday, care pillow for recovery, or just because!

Pillow Gift Ideal for Breast Cancer Patient Gift

No Comments 1128 Views0

_MG_3007A long-time friend of yours is in radiation treatment each day for six weeks for breast cancer.  A family member is receiving a round of chemo therapy for colon cancer. It can make all the difference to your friends and family members if you provide meaningful ways to help make life easier and more comfortable.  Chemo Comfort (chemocomfort.org) provides resources that enable cancer patients to take positive, comforting measures for themselves, thereby empowering patients at a time when so much feels out of their control.  The right toothpaste and a comfy sleeping cap are offered on their website among other important items.

_MG_2994 Timeless Pillows offers comfort pillows for expressing your concern for the comfort of your loved one. A beautiful pillow can be taken to appointments.  I know patients who have appreciated the softness and beauty of a special pillow when sitting in chemo chairs and radiation tables.  It can give comfort emotionally and physically.   a comfort pillow such as those from Timeless Pillows provides a cushion for a soft ice pack that may be needed after surgery.  The pillow gifts from Timeless Pillows has a special pocket inside the pillow where the patient can slip the ice pack to hold it in place.

Also note that it is important not to send flowers to someone in chemo therapy because chemo can make some people react badly to flowers.  The beauty of a handmade pillow also lasts a long time after flowers have disappeared.  

A most important gift along with the pillow for a friend in treatment for cancer is ENCOURAGEMENT. A good friend will encourage his/her friend with positive affirmations to help them through a difficult process.  Be a good listener when your friend shares their fears and anxiety about the future.

Early Detection of Cancer is Critical     Early detection of cancer, notably breast cancer, can mean that chemotherapy may not be necessary!  Some women don’t realize that breast cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death, after lung cancer. However, breast cancer is very treatable when caught early. And nearly three quarters of doctors say that mammograms are the most important way to catch breast cancer early.

As we learn more about cancer in all its forms, we are again reminded of the importance of a positive outlook on life.  Share beauty and kindness with each other.  Timeless Pillows is about that sharing through the careful construction of the handmade pillows it offers as unique pillow gifts for friends on any occasion, but certainly to support a friend in cancer treatment.

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.
