The Nurse Navigator Program at Methodist Charlton Medical Center, Dallas, recently received handcrafted bags for its breast cancer patients. The bags were donated by the local chapter of the American Sewing Guild through the hospitals volunteer department.
It is not just the craftsmanship that is beautiful, Methodist Charlton Nurse Navigator Vicki Hallum, RN, said in a news release. It is the compassion and time spent making the bags for our patients in need.
Hallum says the bags will be given to breast cancer patients when they enter the Nurse Navigator Program. Each bag will include a personal health organizer, pen, key chain and other items. Best Southwest ASG leader Eva Kile said the fabric for the bags was donated to her group with a completed bag to use as a pattern.
The Nurse Navigator Program guides breast cancer patients through treatment, providing education, resources and emotional support on the way.
