Thank you for making a blanket for my Mom. She was very happy to know that there are many people around wishing her and praying for her speedy recovery. I loved the letter of support and care. Sending the blanket all the to India was a surprise for me. Thank you for your support . We all together can kill cancer.

Nicole Macosky has rapidly built this non-profit organization into one that's starting to be recognized nationally. Her determination, vision and commitment to carry out a mission in remembrance of her mother is what drives its success. She's providing relief to breast cancer patients that truly touches the heart.

I came across this non-profit organization quite by accident while looking at a scarf pattern a friend posted on Facebook. I am not sure why, but it touched my heart and I knew I had to get involved. I am currently working on crocheting several squares for "project chemo crochet". I have a couple very special squares featuring pink ribbons which I think will be perfect! I hope the folks in charge will agree once they see them. :-)

On March 25, 2014, i began my chemo treatments for Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. A very dear friend and customer of The Talking Teacup, my tearoom in Chalfont PA, sent me a beautiful Project Chemo Crocheted blanket. What an awesome surprise when i opened my mail and pulled out my blanket. Not only did the blanket keep me warm during chemo treatments but most of all i felt like "arms of love, warmth and support" were being wrapped around me during this difficult time. I am honored to have received such a supportive and loving gesture. I completed my frontline treatment on August 26, 2014, i continue to wrap myself in warmth both at home and at my monthly maintenance treatments. This was truly a gift of strength, love and support all "wrapped up" in a beautiful blanket. Words will never fully express my appreciation, except every time i pull that blanket up around my shoulders, i am reminded of the love that went in to making it.

The pink blanket you made for a friend of mine was incredibly wonderful. She used this blanket during her chemo treatments to keep her warm and helped keep up her spirits. Thank you so much for thinking of my friend!

Project Chemo Crochet is one of the most AWESOME organizations I have ever seen. I requested a blanket for my Aunt and within a week she had received a beautiful handmade, heartfelt blanket to use during her chemo sessions. Their are not enough words to praise this group of people. The joy and thought of others caring about you while you endure some of the toughest days of your life is overwhelming. My Aunt was beyond words. Thank you to all the kind, generous, loving people that crochet, send packages, answer messages, and participate in this organization! YOU are the Best!
