Inaugural Block of the Month Blanket
Thank you to all of the makers from the bottom of my heart. The 36 tiles and the stitcher make me think of stories they were thinking when crocheting, “will I put this colour with that”, “what design is my tile” and what all these people might be doing in their day. It’s just such a great distraction to an otherwise horrible experience. When you go into surgery you leave your clothes in a bag. You’re stripped bare, put your faith into the surgeons and hope Lady Luck is on your side. It takes the edge off a very raw and blunt experience where you have to claw back from base of basics.
Thanks Mary and the team, you are sensational!!! Oh, and I did not know that I could rock pink so well!! Chris

Two of my favorite projects Dogs and GOGs 😊 it is so wonderful to offer this sort of support to our patients and families thank you everyone who make is possible, we couldn’t do it without your acts of kindness 😘 – Carly
We just keep learning why patients love these gogsters and pillows.
Yesterday a patient was telling me how much she missed her cat sitting on her bed.
How she missed that pressure feeling on her legs and reaching down to feel soft fur that would give a feeling of comfort and protection.
I thought she would be a great candidate for the cat pillow that unfortunately I don’t have a photo of but attached is a picture of Joel who loves giving the Gogsters out.
Guess what it was a complete hit.
It reminds us how important our pets are to our sense of wellbeing.
She referred to the pillow of giving her some solace until she gets home.
The tactile design, the colour and the big contented cat face was a winner
I have been meaning to post a message here…😍🥰😍
Last week I had the pleasure of caring for a wonderful person who was incredibly unwell. I felt so privileged to care for him, and to fold and place the chosen blanket and crocheted toy on him each time I turned him and provided pressure area care/skin care. Each time I did it, I placed the beautiful, thoughtful knitted goods aside, did his personal cares and took giant pride as I placed them back on him; knowing that his children would hold the items after he passed away, and how important these items will be in the future. I hope the beautifully crafted goods provide solace to his children for many years to come. Thank you Gogsters; for providing a beautiful, caring hug to everyone, myself included 😘 – Bec
