The organization is called Con Kerr Cancer and the organization was started by a mother who's son was in the hospital for long periods of time.

The Hansford County chapter is new and makes 60 bright colored pillowcases a month for children who are inBSA or Northwest hospitals.

According to Judy Yarbrough"they are bright and cheery it helps brighten the room and their day".

The chapter is looking for fabric to make the pillowcases or monetary donations."We are in need of donations for fabric or monetary donations towards the fabric so we can keep this going".
