S.O.S. (Survivors Offering Support) is another charity requesting scarves, but this time the scarves stay in our community. Each year more than 125 women undergo breast cancer surgery at Howard County General Hospital, and S.O.S. is an all volunteer organization of Breast Cancer survivors who help recently diagnosed women through the ordeal of treatment and recovery. As part of their efforts to guide patients through the recovery journey, SOS provides "Recovery Gift Bags", delivered by SOS volunteers, filled with needed "gifts" from local and national businesses to each breast cancer patient on the day of their surgery. We are looking for 150 handmade scarves to donate to this local charity. To learn more about this program, please contact Denise O'Neill, SOS Coordinator at The Center for Breast Care at Howard County General Hospital by calling (410) 884-4574.
