October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. AWOG members have been sewing and delivering the AWOG HEART PILLOWS since 2007 and continue to do so. AWOG members have sewn more than 6000 pillows during these years.. More than 100 pillows were delivered last spring and another 100 are ready to go this fall. These pillows are made with love by our members and personally delivered to hospitals here in Attiki. They will be on display at our upcoming Health Seminar on October 9th where one of our speakers will be the Director of Surgery of Metaxa Hospital, one of the public hospitals we deliver to. It was AWOG Greece that introduced the idea to Coco Mat through Grace Christovasilis, in 2012 and we collaborated with them for two years. Since January of 2014 AWOG HEART PILLOWS have been done exclusively by our members who want to continue to do the “hands on” work and we have “stuff it” parties regularly and are capably handling the hospitals in both the north and south of Attiki. who call us directly when they want deliveries. This is a year long profject for AWOG, it isn’t promoted or worked on only durng October.

The AWOG HEART PILLOW is all cotton, made to the specifications which were brought to us back in 2007 and have a wonderful, soft filling. They are colorful and beautiful to look at and feedback from the many patients is heartwarming to our members who work so hard making them. They are certain to bring cheer as well as relieve pain. Each heart pillow is delivered in a plastic bag with a card attached from AWOG.
