Chemo and Everything After Update
May 23, 2016

It's been 3 weeks since the "Sit-Kit" Chemo Goody Bags project started. Thanks to the generosity of so many the goal was hit. Now the fun begins See More

THE STORY:

As a former cancer patient I am wanting to create goody bags for the patients at North Shore Kellogg Cancer Center. For those of you that are lucky enough to have never been in a chemo center, patients typically sit for 4-6 hours hooked up to an IV that drips chemo and a cocktail of other drugs into our bodies. It can be uncomfortable, scary and boring. You are often cold, nauseous or dizzy from these drugs. You are tethered to an IV tower so you may only get up to use the restroom. Now imagine you are 80 years old and by yourself. I've seen this first hand. The chemo centers are FILLED with patients like this. It is heartbreaking. My goal is to create 100 goody bags filled with items that might be useful to these patients: bottled water, mints, crossword puzzles, tissues, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, Chapstick, pen/paper, granola bar, snacks, chocolate and any other items I can find. I plan to visit Kellogg Cancer Center to personally deliver each bag and give them hope and comfort if I can. The reason for this post is I'm asking for donations. Donations of actual products or monetary donations so I can purchase the items. If you would like to donate, please drop me an email. If you know of a business that can help, I'd appreciate it if you could pass on my name and email address. Every little bit will help!! Thank you so much!! Linda linda41856@gmail.com
