With a diagnosis of cancer comes an endless number of doctors appointments, tests, scans, biopsies, surgical procedures and even hospital visits.  And to add insult to injury, often times, patients need to wear those yucky hospital gowns.  For many, hospital gowns are downright uncomfortable, depressing, embarrassing and candidly just another reminder of what you are going through.  So cancer survivor Brenda Jones decided she would change this… With the help of a friend who knew how to sew, Brenda transformed a fun, colorful bed sheet into a beautiful kimono-style wrap that she could wear to her radiation appointments.

Now, Brenda has founded Hug Wraps, an non-profit organization that makes warm, cozy kimono-style wraps to order in beautiful, bright colored and patterned soft flannel material.  Wraps can also be customized with special inside pockets can be added to hold items like surgical drains, tubing, insulin pumps, etc.  AMAZING!

Brenda makes these Hug Wraps by hand and sends them directly to patients… She simply asks for a donation to be made when placing an order if possible to help cover the cost of the materials & shipping.  Check out hugwraps.com for more information.
