BENEFITING: SPOKES OF HOPE
Having been through a personal cancer battle twice... and being a nurse I have a pretty good idea what would help someone going through cancer treatment. Whether it be chemo, radiation or surgery... or in many cases, all three. Spokes of Hope is a 100% volunteer run charitable organization with it's primary focus on helping people diagnosed with cancer not only survive it, but thrive through it. With this in mind, Spokes of Hope would like to be able to give patients care packages of Hope that contain things to help them through treatment. But the items cost money and the number of people going into treatment is not decreasing any time soon. Therefore we are asking for help. These items are not just comfort items... they are also a way for patients to know that they are not alone in the fight. We also strive to connect them with others who have endured the treatment and come out the other side victorious over cancer. As part of these care packages, we would like to add a DVD to close the educational gap on how to prepare for surgery, what to expect, how to manage pain and details that only other survivors could tell them regarding how to get through it all. The money raised would go directly to the care packages and the DVD production. You would be helping patients during one the the most terrifying experiences of their lives. Please help.
