Make and Donate a Blanket

• To make a no-sew, knotted fleece blanket, buy a prepackaged blanket kit at a fabric store or make the blanket from scratch. All you need are scissors, a tape measure and a few yards of fleece. For directions, visit Get Cozy During Chemo.

• Contact your local cancer center to see if it accepts donated blankets.

• If you don’t have a specific blanket request or know the person you’re making the blanket for, choose understated patterns that aren’t theme-specific.

• Make the blanket in a smoke- and pet-free environment to avoid exposing patients with weakened immune systems to substances that can cause infections or irritation.
