Each October volunteers stitch together a quilt for hope in the fight against Breast Cancer.
The pink tribute is then donated to premier cancer centers at hospitals around Western Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia.
On Tuesday, Wheeling Hospital was chosen to receive their third “Warriors in Pink” quilt from Neighborhood Ford Stores. Jim Robinson, of Robinson Ford presented Wheeling Hospital with the quilt.
The quilt is made of inspirational squares dedicated at Pittsburgh‘s Race for the Cure. As the quilt hangs in the hospital, it provides a sense of home for patients battling in Wheeling.
“By us displaying this wonderful quilt in our breast center, our patients see it, their families see it. And it brings hope and it brings joy to them it puts smile son their faces to see all these personal little messages from all these folks throughout the region. It brings them hope and joy for their condition,” said Director of Public Relations and Marketing, Gregg Warren.
Wheeling Hospital is one of 52 clinics in the nation to be certified in breast cancer excellence.
Robinson said Neighborhood Ford is happy to help patients at Wheeling Hospital find hope and strength in the heartfelt patches of the quilt.
