Wrapped in Love was inspired by my mom when she was in the hospital before she passed away. It was Christmas Eve and she said she didn’t want to have any more visitors as she felt she looked too bad in her state of illness. I felt helpless. I decided to go home and make her a wrap to go over her patient gown so she would feel special on Christmas day. When I put it on her, the nurses said she seemed to light up, and her smile said it all. I decided then that I wanted to do the same for others.
Wrapped in Love consists of wraps and head wraps specially designed to provide warmth, beauty and dignity for women with cancer and those convalescing. Each comes with a signature, detachable flower pin — as my mother loved flowers. I worked with nurses to ensure the designs allow proper medical access if needed. I also conducted a focus group with members of Gilda’s Club to get their input on the fabrics and designs that would meet their needs. The wraps and head wraps are available in a variety of styles, fabrics and colors. Made in America.
