    Everyone has a favorite pillow. And some local women have one made especially for them.

    The heart-shaped pillows that Edna Gunsaules sews for women who have undergone breast cancer and OB-GYN surgery meets a need.

    Susan Blevins, a breast cancer survivor and recipient of one of the pillows, said the pillow actually helped ease the pain after having her lymph nodes removed during breast cancer surgery.

    Blevins still uses the pillow today.
