I want to thank you so much for what you do. I just received a beautiful scarf at Sanford cancer center today. What you do really touched my heart and brought tears rolling down my face. It’s an absolute blessing. Thank you for your kindness!”
Thank you, Kim, for the scarves you made. You’re so very talented and we appreciate all that you do for My Pink Scarf, Inc.!
Thank you to the members of Quota for the beautiful scarves you’ve knit/crochet. You’ve certainly been busy this winter! As always, your time, talent and generosity is so greatly appreciated.
In memory of Anita Phaneuf .. by her friend.
Anita Phaneuf , of St. John’s Newfoundland Canada, passed away peacefully at St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018, at the age of 70.
In the words of her friend, Bonnie Moss:
Thank you so much for your donation to My Pink Scarf, Inc. Several women on the waiting list will receive a pink scarf because of your generosity.
If you do know a woman with cancer, we would like to do something nice for her. All we need is that woman’s name, address and other particulars (like her mobile number) and we can donate a handmade pink scarf to her. Again, this is a donation from this organization to a woman who could use a little ray of sunshine in her life.
This is free.
The original logo was fine .. well .. except for one thing. When I saw it for the first time in 2017 I thought it looked like a ribbon, which is well known to be connected to cancer.
The issue, then, was did the old logo not look like a scarf. Since the organization is all about giving away one scarf at a time, was a ribbon-looking logo a drawback? Click continue reading below to see both and then leave us a comment as to you opinion regarding which is best.
If you looked back in time, either with a time machine or using some ‘kewl‘ online tools, you’d see big changes in this website with both its appearance and activity (or inactivity). One does not need to think very long to know the one-word reason that this critical mission brokedown for a time. But this story is still a terrific read, even though you may have guessed what temporarily interfered with My Pink Scarf™.
This summer, after spending countless hours in chemotherapy, I decided to publicly thank Dr. Thandiwe Gray, a Sanford oncologist, for all that she has done for My Pink Scarf, Inc. Dr. Gray, along with her staff, has been very instrumental in giving out pink scarves to cancer survivors.
Dr. Gray was nominated and received two awards – the HERO and the Guardian Angel Award. Dr. Gray exemplifies the qualities of a hero: 1. Courage – she provides strength to women who are battling cancer by providing exceptional medical care with compassion and respect. 2. Selflessness – she genuinely cares about each and every patient. Their medical care and emotional well being are of utmost importance to her. 3. Humility – she’s so humble. She doesn’t consider herself any better than anyone else. 4. Patience – she’s never too busy to visit with me when I stop by and deliver scarves. She gives of herself so effortlessly; she makes whoever comes in contact with her feel so special. 5. Caring – she continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. She has given out thousands of pink scarves and continues to do so year after year.
