ConKerr Cancer, a group of student volunteers, is sewing pillowcases for children with cancer.

This year, the University’s ConKerr Cancer leader Rachel Healy ’16 plans to send the pillowcases to the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital and the Susquehanna Valley Women in Transition program.

Healy will be running workshops in the Craft Center throughout the semester. The workshops are expected to have about five students each and will provide students with sewing lessons.

“No sewing experience is needed, the effort of trying will bring smiles to faces,” Healy said.

When asked how important she thinks the group is Healy said, “Number one, right up there with Relay for Life.”

Heather Lenker ’12 originally brought the ConKerr Cancer program to the University six years ago.
