Wear heart on your sleeve: make a woven silk scarf


February is American Heart Month. Since 1963, this has been a reminder that cardiovascular diseases, including strokes, are the nation's No. 1 killer, according to the American Heart Association Web site.

I probably don't have to tell you what you already know. Everyone knows someone who has had a heart attack or stroke. Maybe you have or know someone who has high blood pressure or cholesterol. Oftentimes they find out after something serious happens and they are scared and confused as to where to turn for support.

I had the pleasure of talking to Jody Knack recently. She is the co-coordinator of the Aurora chapter of Heart Sisters ( With co-coordinator Cindi Reuland and the assistance of Dr. Santosh Gill of Rush-Copley's Heart Institute, Heart Sisters "welcome(s) any women who feel the need to share heart health-related concerns."

Knack formed this chapter of Heart Sisters in 2003 after suffering a near-fatal, massive heart attack herself. She was only 44. With nowhere to turn for support, she felt lost. She trained with the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, Women Heart.

Gill and her staff were instrumental in providing a place to hold meetings and contacting speakers to keep members informed.

We are lucky to have a Heart Sister chapter in our area. There are only 62 in the United States. Two are in Illinois (the other is in Glenview). Aurora's chapter serves three local hospitals: Rush-Copley, Provena Mercy Center and Edward in Naperville.

What local women does Heart Sisters help? They are women who have had valve repairs, bypass surgery, heart attacks, stents, high cholesterol, hypertension or women waiting for a transplant.

They meet the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m., alternating between Rush-Copley and Provena Mercy.

"This is no pity party," stated Knack. "We offer support, comfort, hope and humor."

Women hear about Heart Sisters from brochures at local doctor's offices and clinics. They also go to community events to get the word out. Another way they touch women with care and compassion is by giving each local woman a gift bag on their first day of rehab after a heart event. This gift bag includes literature, a Red Dress pin from the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign, and a handmade red scarf with a card telling them it was made by women in our community.

Who is knitting and crocheting them? Right now, four regulars contribute most of them. Knack met them at the Senior Meal Program at Good Shepherd Church in Oswego. Carol Glassford, Sue Moga, Helen Gateley and Reena Maxey have kept their needles flying to keep the chapter stocked with bright red scarves.

How can you help? If you knit or crochet, get some red yarn and make a woven silk scarf (or lots of them) to donate. They must be between four and five inches wide and 44 inches long (no fringe please). You can make them out of that fun, furry yarn, or whatever kind you like to work with, as long as it is red. Make something soft and snuggly to give a scared local woman a small hug to show she's not alone.

Maybe you have a Scout troop that needs a project. What could be easier than teaching them to knit or crochet a woven silk scarf? If you don't know a crochet hook from a knitting needle, you can pick up a skein or two of yarn to donate to the seniors who would love to make scarves, but their limited income prevents participation.
