Hearing you've got the 'C-Word' is hard on anyone, but for 79-year-old Frances Jones it was even harder because it came after her husband of 56 years passed away. Frances knew she wouldn't have to go through cancer alone, but after spending more than half of her life with her husband, all she really wanted was to feel his arms around her.
Granddaughter Maddie could tell how much her 'MawMaw' was struggling after the stage 4 cancer diagnosis, and she wanted to do something epic to raise MawMaw's spirits. Without saying a word, she gathered one of her late-grandfather's favorite old shirts and created a 'chemo blanket' for Frances. The blanket, which looks like any other blanket on the outside, has his shirt sewn onto the inside. That way Frances never feels alone during the treatments.
And she'll always have his arms around her, no matter how hard things get.
