THE SUSIE BULLINGTON TURBAN MINISTRY (CHEMO CAPS)
The Women on Missions (WMU) members began a Turban and Chemo Cap Ministry for cancer patients in November 2003 in memory of Susie, a member of the WMU who lost her battle with cancer. The turbans and caps are available to anyone in the church, community, and through Mountain Valley Hospice and Forsyth Regional Cancer Center. The members have made over 3,000 caps as of July 4, 2011. The members of the WMU meet monthly after their regularly scheduled meetings to create the caps. The caps bring comfort to women who have suffered hair loss due to treatment. The patients receive a card with words of encouragement and Bible scriptures. The ladies in this Ministry lift the patients up in prayer for comfort and healing.
