ConKerr Cancer's "
Miles of Pillowcase Smiles Campaign" is just around the corner. In honor of Childhood Cancer Month, ConKerr Volunteers are committed to creating more than 44,000 pillowcases (20 miles) during September, each one representing a child currently in treatment. Last year over 64,000 pillowcases were sewn nationwide.

Here's a message from Robyn Moyer, Child Life Specialist at Albany Med:

The pillowcases have been great!!!!! We have found homes to store all of them and given several out to patients. We give the patients a choice of a few designs. It is so much fun to see the colorful pillowcases on the beds when I walk into a room. The nurses are really enjoying giving them out! Thank you so much!
