Handmade pillowcases bring holiday cheer

SEW MUCH FUN: Cunniffe, left, and MGHfC patient Duncan Miles, age 6

While having visions of sugarplum fairies, MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) patients will be resting their heads on colorful handmade pillowcases they helped sew on Dec. 11 in the Ellison 18 Playroom with volunteers Marie Nader and Jane Cunniffe of ConKerr Cancer:  A Case for Smiles.  The nonprofit organization aims to brighten the rooms of hospitalized children by making and delivering decorated pillowcases. Originally focused on pediatric cancer patients, ConKerr Cancer today provides pillowcases and smiles to all young patients who are hospitalized.
