Cancer survivor creates care packages

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2015-12-15 11:05

About the solution

Having recently battled stage three breast cancer herself she knows what would make patients who are sitting through treatments feel better.

“It was still like you were just there and nothing to do and it was always like the highlight of the day if a group came in even if they just brought like hot chocolate or coffee or donuts. If somebody came in and brought something it was like somebody’s here, they care, they want to see that you’re doing better,” Dee-Dee explained.

Dee-Dee says the response from the community has been overwhelming; she got enough donations to put together 55 chemo care packages.
