Inmates Make Shawls for Cancer Survivors

Several inmates in a Montana prison have devoted time to making shawls for cancer survivors in their community.  Though it may sound like a simple gesture, this is actually a very wonderful program.  

The inmates will finish the shawls as part of the Pink Shawl cancer awareness project, and then present them to survivors.  Not only does the community get to see the compassion that these inmates have, but the inmates are able to keep in touch with the world outside their prison.  People sometimes view inmates as calloused, often forgetting that they too are affected by devastating diseases like cancer.  Programs like these allow for communication and compassion to flow freely through prison bars.
