In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Splurge Unique Gifts, Home Décor and Jewelry held a month-long program that culminated with 67 pashmina scarves donated to patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments at the Cancer Institute at Greenwich Hospital.
The pashminas each included a hand written note of encouragement from the donors.
Splurge owner Sonia Malloy said about the program, “We are thrilled to donate 67 pashminas this year, doubling last year’s donation amount, due to the support of our wonderful clients. We hope that these scarves will bring comfort and warmth to chemotherapy patients being treated at Greenwich Hospital.”
Patricia Perrone, manager of the Breast Care Center added, “Greenwich Hospital is proud to once again be the recipient of these beautiful pashminas. The scarves, along with the personal notes, have been greatly appreciated by our chemotherapy patients.
“We see that they brighten a patient’s day and it is wonderful to know that people are sending good wishes for their recovery,” said Ms. Perrone.
Stephanie Dunn Ashley, Director of Special Events for Greenwich Hospital Foundation, noted “We are enormously happy with the donation and the commitment Splurge has made to this program. We look forward to continuing this relationship with them and express our gratitude to Sonia for her generosity.”
