Jane’s Closet was established in memory of Jane Wineteer, a community advocate dedicated to helping individuals battling cancer. Jane lost her battle to breast cancer in February of 2007 after being diagnosed in March of 2006. Through her trials and tribulations, Jane wanted to provide aid to others fighting the same battle. Jane was an employee of BBGH and a gracious giver. To support her vision of Jane’s Closet, she named BBGH as the beneficiary of her life insurance. 

Through fundraising and gracious donations, Jane’s vision of helping others battling cancer came to life. Recipients of Jane’s Closet are eligible to receive financial assistance, comfort bags, wigs, and scarves.

Jane’s Closet was founded with the goal of assisting those in need who are battling cancer. Assistance is not limited to a specific cancer. Whether the battle is with skin, breast, or prostate cancer, Jane’s Closet is there to help. Recipients must reside in Box Butte County.

Someone may request assistance on behalf of a loved one. To request a donation, for yourself or for a loved one, contact one of the Jane’s Closet representatives.

Wings of HOPE (Helping Others Pursue Education) is a committee formed at the request of Jane Wineteer, who passed away in February of 2007 from breast cancer. She dreamed of establishing an area at Box Butte General Hospital to hold resources for cancer patients.

Wings of HOPE is the parent organization which supplies Jane's Closet with material and products that are designed to help area residents diagnosed with cancer cope with the disease. The organization also provides monetary support for cancer patients to help them with expenses (e.g. travel and lodging).

Besides providing for those in need, Wings of HOPE continues to accept wigs, scarves, books or any other item appropriate for cancer patients of all ages. Cash donations to purchase such items are also accepted.
