‘Wrapped In Love’ Brings Warmth To Cancer Patients Going Through Treatment
October 6, 2016 5:13 PM
All Karen MacDonald wanted was to see her mom smile while she was being treated for cancer.
“I designed a wrap for her to go over her patient gown just to give her some warmth and beauty and dignity and it really made a difference,” said MacDonald.
From that experience MacDonald opened Wrapped in Love. The company creates clothes and accessories for cancer patients.
Input from patients and nurses to help ensure the style and fabric meets their needs.
“For instance, even with the head wrap — I use bamboo cotton or modal because it wicks away perspiration. I just designed a new wrap that zips up but also has pockets on the side for drains after breast surgery.”
“Everyone should feel beautiful and special on the outside despite how they may be feeling inside,” MacDonald observes. “Studies have shown that external appearance can affect an individual’s emotional well being during an illness.”
Each month MacDonald gives a portion of her profits to a different charity.
October is breast cancer awareness month.

Venice Gondolier Sun: Her loss leads to wrapping cancer patients in love
October 26, 2016
Almost two years ago, just before Christmas, Karen McDonald’s mother was admitted into the hospital in their Michigan hometown. She had been sick for a few years as a result of her non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and had taken a turn for the worse. Looking at her mother’s frail state, McDonald knew that this would probably be the last Christmas she would ever spend with her, and the realization hit her hard.

NOTE: Wrapped in Love had the opportunity to walk the runway with our line of clothing for cancer patients. Below is our leopard print poncho and matching head wrap as shown on the runway.
There are 100k+ health activists in our network who spend countless hours pulling together amazing events to spread awareness, hope and raise money.
AnnMarie is one of those patient advocates out there making a difference.
The following blog post has been written by AnneMarie and depicts a gorgeous event she held to help empower women. We may not have had the pleasure of attending the event in person, but if you take a scroll through the photos that were captured it’s easy to see what the energy was in that room.
This is a perfect example of a patient impacting the lives of so many! We’re happy to highlight this wonderful event here on the blog today.
