fiberfil with a shower scrungie. Whether you have had a lumpectomy or

to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and are easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing.

- These beautifully sculpted small glass bottles covered
with polymer clay symbolize a wish and a hope for
The Bottles of Hope project was started in 1999 by a very
special person, Diane Gregoire, a cancer survivor and
polymer clay artist. Diane found a way to use her special
talents as an artist to cheer up the lives of cancer
patients going through the ordeal of chemotherapy. She used
clay to decoratively cover small glass medicine bottles and
gave them to other patients as a symbol of hope. Since
that time the project has spread internationally and are
made by artists, students, survivors, seniors and many more
who volunteer their time and love. Please visit bottlesofhope.org
for more information.
||Stars of Hope - Each of
these unique and beautiful stars is lovingly crafted by an
ovarian cancer survivor from western MA. She began
creating them as a way to heal, and now shares them with
others hoping that they bring to others what the stars
brought to her. We are honored to pass along these
stars to you.
