For her Gold Award project, Jessica organized and hosted a breast cancer information seminar where they made over 600 care packages for mastectomy patients containing compression pillows and drainage bags.
"In a practical sense, working on my Gold Award expanded my organizational
and financial skills. It also bettered my public speaking and persuasive
writing. But that wasn't what Pillows for Patients was really about. It was
about the 600 women suffering from breast cancer, and the many women in the
future who would have to face it too. Through my project I have touched lives, and I am delighted for having done so," Jessica said.
Girls, don't forget that if you're finishing up your Gold Award, the paperwork is due by March 31. Please save the date for the Gold Award Ceremony on Sunday, June 2, 2013 in Medford, New Jersey.
