Chemo Comfort was born from my desire to share knowledge I acquired while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Chemo Comfort provides kits to cancer patients with products that I found useful while undergoing chemotherapy. These products help patients manage nausea, mouth sores and hair loss, among other things. There is also literature enclosed with hints from me of ways to cope with various aspects of this experience.
Chemo Comfort has a three-tiered program to distribute kits to cancer patients. Kits are donated through cancer organizations; subsidized kits are available to other cancer patients for a minimal donation; and there is a gift kit program, which helps to sustain our other programs. Over 80% of this year's kits have been donated. Each kit has a retail value of over $140. Please visit our website if you would like a brochure (www.chemocomfort.org).
Funds raised through our recycle partnership with Empties4Cash go towards purchasing the products we need to put into our kits.
