The idea came from Officer James Seneca with the Aurora Police Department who himself survived cancer.

“When you’re going through treatments, chemotherapy and radiation, your body gets cold. A lot of aches and pains. So I felt with the quilts, it’d be comforting,” said Seneca.

Denver police along with deputies from the Adams County Sheriff’s Office also helped make quilts.
