The Victory Hill Civic and Social Center's Ladies Auxiliary graciously donated 30 handmade fleece scarves for cancer patients at Monongahela Valley Hospital's Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center. The ladies traditionally make either hats or scarves each year for MVH patients to help provide them with some comfort during the cold winter months. Pictured from left to right are Auxiliary President Connie Russell, of Monongahela; and MVH's Director of Fund Development, Melissa Marion, of New Brighton.

"Love really adds to the recipe of healing and these are truly a gift from the heart," said Ms. Russell, a retired nurse who has worked with cancer patients. "We hope they get a measure of warmth and comfort from these."

She added that cancer has impacted each of the auxiliary members' families, so the scarf project is very personal to them.
