Ears To You has been an amazing organization. I am a friend of an outpatient Chemotherapy Nurse, and they brought tons of earrings to their patients! Ears to You is an outstanding organization, and they have helped so many people!
I love bringing hope and joy through Ears To You as a Board Member! As a cancer survivor, I wear my earrings from Ears to You daily to remind me I am a survivor!
I joined the nonprofit Board of Directors of "Ears to You" this past summer because I believe strongly in their mission and the women behind this incredible organization. I have know the founder, Ruth Crane, for many years and have seen her successfully battle cancer. It is truly inspirational that she is willing to give so freely of her time and expertise in order to brighten the lives of other women undergoing cancer treatments.
Ears to you has provided the patients with cancer that I care for a reason to smile and feel pretty. It is so devastating for women to lose their hair, have their body image altered and feel they are no longer themselves. ears to you gives us the opportunity to provide them with their choice of a pair of earrings. It brings a smile to their face, lifts their spirits and gives them a special touch of femininity.
This program has been a Godsend to my patients. Just to see their faces light up when given such a simple gift as a pair of earrings is priceless. The most impactful time is when the ladies hair falls out from the chemotheraphy. It gives them a much needed boost to their self esteem. I do not have all the words to express how grateful I am to be a part of such an oustanding organization.
I have personally seen Ears to You make a difference in a friend's life. The simple donation of giving a patient the opportunity to choose a pair of earrings out of a beautiful collection while undergoing her chemotherapy treatment absolutely made her feel like a queen. The earrings helped to remind her that although she was losing her hair, becoming ruddy with her complexion, watching her face swell up from the support drugs, and surviving the physical care throughout her mastectomy procedure, she could take a small item and feel beautiful again. She was fascinated by the smiles brought to the faces of those women experiencing the same anguish through their fight against cancer which brought a sense of hope and peace to her as well, almost as if they were in their own little club, joined by Ears to You. Thank you Ears to You for having the wholistic sense to heal those often forgotten feelings through a woman's battle with cancer.
Ruth Crane,the founder and a cancer survivor herself,is my niece, and I cannot express how proud of her I am.
She saw through her own pain and thought of others and started this amazing nonprofit movement to help others.
Blessings come in many ways and Ruth has truly been a blessing to a lot of people.
Please support her cause even in a small way and say a little prayer along the way to all people with cancer that they will live a long and blessed life without cancer
Every day I work with women with breast cancer who undergo chemotherapy. Most will lose their hair in addition to other changes and the earrings offer hope and send a positive message to those just starting this journey. When these women know this program was started by a survivor it is more meaningful. The program brings a smile and is a wonderful. I feel blessed that I can offer such a wonderful gift.
Ears To You has been a genuine blessing to my patients. I am an outpatient Chemotherapy Nurse. ETY brought us 96 pairs of earrings to offer to our female patients whenever they need a pick-me-up (especially as their hair is lost due to chemotherapy). We have offered the earrings for far more than that...we celebrate Anniversaries and Birthdays with a gift of earrings...as well as offered them to wives of male patients stuck in our unit on Valentine's day "to help them shop" ;-) We even added a pair to the ears of a Triumphant Teddy Bear (given to patients upon graduating from chemo, dressed to fit their personality...the earrings another gift for the survivor). The smiles are priceless, the relief on the males' faces in that they were able to give their caregiving wives a Valentine gift, irreplaceable. Ears To You blesses me in that I feel I have a positive gift to offer amidst their battle. Thank you, and God Bless you, Ears to You! We so appreciate you...and all those who support your efforts!
