October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To raise awareness, Cindy shows you how to make a post-surgery heart pillow. These little pillows are designed to fit under the armpit, providing support after a mastectomy or other breast cancer related surgeries. Download the free template, designed by our friend, Sachiko (Tea Rose Home), who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018. Make one or a dozen and donate them to your local oncologist’s office.
