Heart cushions for those diagnosed with breast cancer

Are you a creative, crafty individual with a love for sewing? Then you may be able to help Big C!

Big C are in need of handmade heart-shaped cushions to be included in our Care Packages, given to those currently undergoing cancer treatment.

These easy-to-sew cushions help aid comfort around the breast and under the arm, supporting women living with and beyond breast cancer in their everyday life (such as wearing a seat belt).

Pat, a volunteer who makes the cushions with her sewing group, said: “The heart cushions are so comforting post operatively and the thought that someone has made it with love helps to realise you are not alone.”

If you’re interested in making these cushions for Big C, please see below for instructions on how to create these.

Due to how the cushions are used, it is essential for anyone wanting to donate cushions to follow the instructions otherwise we will be unable to include the hearts in our Care Packages.

To arrange collection or drop-off of the cushions, please contact our Support and Information team at
