Warwood Lions Club makes blankets for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

WARWOOD, W. Va. (WTRF) - In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, the Warwood Lions Club is teaming with the community to make fleece blankets for pediatric patients.

The Club is calling all ages, and says making blankets is very easy and anyone young or old can participate. 

Fleece blankets can be used as piece of comfort and warmth as these tough children continue their fight against cancer through treatment.

"A lot of the kids that are going through chemo treatments are often cold, and could use something to snuggle up with," said Warwood Lons Club Secretary Julie Ann Davis. "Everyone loves a nice, warm blanket, so we have these double-layer fleece blankets that will keep them warm during treatment and as they recover."

A child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes, and children are usually are diagnosed at six-years-old.

If you would like to participate, the event will be held 6:30 p.m. on February 25 at the Corpus Christi Cafeteria. You can rsvp here.
