John and Faye Von Deck, founders of CuzWeCare, load up Laura’s car with a new supply of soft, cuddly neck rolls for the patients at Eastern Connecticut Hematology. The pillows are available at the office to help make the seemingly endless hours of treatments more comfortable.

CuzWeCare is a non-profit organization that was created in 2004 when John and Fay realized that there were many high school students, seniors and girls scout troops who cared about patients that they may never know. These volunteers are busy making pillows and pillowcases, chemo caps, and afghans to let patients know that someone is thinking about them. The Von Decks said that “since they care so much for others, and since we care for both the patients and the volunteers, “CuzWeCare” was born.”
