Buddy Check: May-2015- Comfort Creations Made With Love

It’s ladies night!
  Sara Bertocki and Jules Perhacs are enjoying some sparkling wine, great conversation and…… knitting.

  It wasn’t  Jules first idea of good time, but over the past two-years, Jules has grown to love knitting….plus its’ an excuse to hang out with her girlfriends.
  Tonight’s get together is at Sara’s home in West Pittston.

“We get together one night a week or every other week and we knit. It’s just something we both enjoy doing, and have some good fellowship as well as donate to a good cause.” said Sara

  Scarves, mittens, slippers, neck warmers…the ladies donate them all to medical oncology associates in Kingston and Candy’s Place, a Cancer Wellness Center in Forty Fort.
  Each of these cozy items are designed for women and men battling cancer.

“Especially knowing that some people who are having chemo and having treatments for cancer are really effected by the cold. the knitted items are even more helpful.” said Jules

“I just thought how can we make this bigger? How can we help people? A woman I worked with was pretty inspirational. She battled breast cancer and so she gave me a lot of ideas.” said Jules

She started the challenge back in february.

“She says, I have this great idea for a breast cancer knitting challenge for FACEBOOK. So I said, let’s do it! i think it’s great.” added Sara

  Sara and Jules realize not everyone knits, but encourage others to give it a try!

“We’re challenging your community basically. we just want you to get out there and talk about knitting, knit, do your own ladies group night, fellowship or donate to our cause.”

  Sara tells us, her home was flooded in 2011. Since then, she’s remodeled, and can focus on helping others.

“I think we’ve all gone through hard times, especially our residents in West Pittston. so thought it all I saw the human spirit truly prevail during all of that.” Sara went on to say

“I think it’s always important we should give, and it if we’re not giving then we truly aren’t getting.”

Don’t forget to call your Buddy and Remind them to do a self breast exam
