Thank you News12 for joining my event and helping to spread awareness to the PoshPillowProject. It was such a great turnout and all of the participants ere amazing!
One, North Jersey, high school, senior is spreading more than awareness
for breast cancer awareness month. She's also spreading knowledge
teaching others how to make a pillow that brings breast cancer patients
comfort in the car are Marcy Rubin reports.
18 year old, Charlotte Abrams, has a passion for pillows.
The Bergen County teen created, the Posh pillow project
to help breast cancer patients after surgery.
POSH stands for Post-op Supportive Hug and then pillow.
They are sewn for patients who are recovering from mastectomy
or reconstructive or other breast cancer related surgeries.
It provides Comfort to patients when traveling in the car
and now she's teaching others how to make them at classes
like this one at the Englewood library.
Both in person and virtually for those of you online. Charlotte came up with the idea at
just 14 after a loved one had a mastectomy and felt discomfort while driving in a car.
After seeing how that really benefited her I wanted to make them accessible
to us Many people as possible. The POSH pillow comes with armholes and sits between
the surgical site and a seatbelt in a car. It's meant to provide support and comfort in more
ways than one, we're not just making them we're filling them with love and that, that is what
that hug is. It's just spreading that love to as many people as possible", the classes and her
website, which has a downloadable template help, others, learn
to make the pillows.
Truly when I say this, every single Posh pillow is made with so much love
