Petals of Gratitude

Providing free crochet flowers to cancer patients to gift to their medical heros!

Petals of Gratitude

I’m Jenny, and I’m the founder of Petals of Gratitude. I started this charity in November 2021. I was approached by a customer who asked me if I could make 40 roses by Christmas. That was quite an order and I told him I would not be able to fulfill that by Christmas. I then asked him what they were for and he told me he was a Cancer patient that wanted a way to show his appreciation to all the Amazing Healthcare team who have kept him alive along the way. I thought this was an amazing gesture. I took this Idea to a large online crochet group and before I knew it, I had over 150 volunteers wanting to help make a rose. It grew from there and hasn’t stopped growing. We offer this service to all Cancer patients for free, we love being able to bring smiles to as many faces as possible. Thank you for visiting us! Please, help us spread the word!

What People Say

I have to tell you all how completely amazing each and everyone of you all are. Today, my wife, Conni, had a follow up appointment with her oncologist after her last chemo treatment a couple weeks ago. She received her box of beautiful flowers last week, so it was perfect timing. Anyway, after her appointment, she let her Dr. select a rose, then we went to back, where each of her nurses that contributed to her care was able to pick a rose. She also gave the receptionist roses as well and her nurse navigator. So, we had some teary eyes, and very kind words of how sweet this was and they all loved the idea of us doing this. I think that it is important that you all are hearing how your work is appreciated. They all loved the little tags on them saying where and who they were from. They just thought that was so cool. And as a bonus they all said they were going to check the group out😁 I even had one ask if they could donate. I told them to go to the page😉. That is all, just a thank you to everyone and to let you know that it is such an honor for me to be a part of this!!!

We want to say Thank You to you each for taking the time to crochet these beautiful petals of roses for my husband. The smile it puts on the nurses faces when given a rose to show appreciation for what they do is hard to describe! Thank you and God Bless each of you!
