Full Circle Moment at RMC’s Project Linus Blanket Workshop

It was a full circle moment for a mother and son at the RMC Auxiliary’s Project Linus Workshop last week.

Roxanne Anderson and her now 16-year old son, Max, volunteered their time to make blankets for RMC pediatric patients on Thursday. 

As they sat and put together a fleece blanket, Roxanne was reminded of the day she brought her 9-month old baby boy into the RMC Emergency Room. “I remember grabbing everything we could as we rushed Max into emergency care, but seemed to have forgotten a blanket. The Project Linus blanket was very helpful because the hospital was cold. It was also a cool summer day, so it was so nice that we could take him home in it too.”

Pediatric patients being cared for in the ER and inpatient unit will benefit greatly from the comfort of these blankets – just like Max did.

Regional Medical Center thanks all of the volunteers who participated in the Project Linus Workshop.
