Hello my name is Amanda Rosen! A couple months ago I came up with an idea to make Port Pillows after some friends of mine said that the seat belt was hurting them when they were in the car driving to and from treatment centers. They told me that they would stick the seat belt behind their back so that it would not rub them. My goal was to find a safer way. So with the help of the community I was able to get supplies donated and people to donate their time to sew pillows! The response was amazing! We donated over 1,600 pillows so far and we have made over 3,000 total. I have delivered pillows to 25 local cancer institutes in North Carolina. Now we have gone Global!! Shipping all over the world. Port pillows are for anyone that has a port! We have all different colors and themes that are great for children and adults! We even take special requests if we can!! The best part is that the pillows are 100% free to all patients with a port!! We will even ship them for free of charge! We are asking donations for supplies! To make pillows we need Sew in Velcro, Pillow Stuffing, fabric, and thread! The community has been great! Recently Wal-Mart even agreed to donate fabric when needed! We have started a go fund me page because people have wanted to donate and do not know where to go to donate. This money will be used for supplies and shipping!

We have created a Facebook group.

You're an angel for thinking of those of us living with the discomfort of ports in our chests. The material you chose for me of the frog doing yoga amid a background of calming phrases of mindfulness ("Be in the moment", "Breathe deeply", "Slow down", "Be strong") is a gentle, yet powerful reminder to me to live in the present always as my cancer journey begins.
