Last Month, FACES Nurses met with the NwRSA, the Northwest Regional Spinners Association.
Morgan Luke and Tracey Gunderson, two recovery room nurses who are long-time FACES volunteers, visited with the talented and thoughtful women of the NwRSA.
Our nurses learned all about fibers and spinning yarn. Then they shared the story of FACES, telling them of the patients in Peru and the use of blankets during surgical recovery.
Impressed by the impact of the work, the spinners of the NwRSA are planning to make and donate blankets, hats and maybe even some sweaters for the patients of the next surgical campaign. We are delighted at their enthusiasm and feel lucky to have connected with this group.
