Care Bag Project
We need fabric cutters and sewers to help make RoL Care Bags for women in Ventura County who are preparing for surgery and other treatment. We need to produce enough bags to service as many women in Ventura County as possible. We also need the help of local vendors to fill these bags with heartwarming items that will provide women with inspiration, pampering, humor, love and more as they go through their journey with breast cancer.
From Ventura to Santa Paula, from Oxnard to Camarillo, at cancer walks, in classrooms, and at special events, this quilt gets around! Our Ribbons of Life PHOTO QUILT project is built from the heart of our organization. read more….
Knitting in Recovery
Join professional knitting instructor Lise Solvang as she teaches you how to knit care squares and more! Survivors/thrivers who take up knitting are finding it helps fill relax them and gives them a project to work on while in waiting rooms and on long drives or while sitting at home recovering. Watch the RoL calendar of events for the next session that meets on specific Saturday mornings. Coffee and food is also served at no charge.
