“Blankets of Hope,” Waukon girl makes blankets for cancer patients

Sometimes even the smallest things can help. It’s the little acts of kindness that make a difference. 

Waukon 14-year-old Taylor Howard is making tie blankets for people who are battling cancer or who are really sick. 

She learned about the idea at school, and she loved it so much that she kept doing it in her spare time. 

She’s made blankets for people in both eastern Iowa and in Minnesota. 

She says, "I just want to let people know that someone is there for them. Even the smallest things help." 

Recently, Howard gave a blanket to a woman battling Stage 4 Lung Cancer.
