Anderson woman crochets blankets for cancer patients

Kay Smelser has been crocheting for a long time – about 50 years.The Anderson woman decided her stockpile of full-size afghans needed to go to good use.

“I thought somebody out there could probably use these,” Smelser said. “They were just filling up my closets.”

That’s when she called her niece, Renee Creason, who works as a system specialist at the St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital Cancer Center. Creason knew exactly who could use the crocheted blankets.

St. Vincent Anderson already provides some type of goodies from the hospital that celebrates the patient’s last cancer treatment. The patients also receive a certificate to celebrate the end of treatment.
