Recently, the Teal It Up Ovarian Cancer Foundation provided Comfort Bags for all newly diagnosed women with gynecologic cancers. Comfort bags include snacks, slippers, scarfs, caps, encouragement letters, hand cream, journal, and really anything that helps make the treatments easier. Nearly 100 Comfort Bags were delivered throughout the Valley & Tucson.
The comfort bag is an insulated lunch bag that can be used by the patient for snacks, lunch, etc. The stuffing of the bags was mostly done by our board members. But we also had one volunteer, Grace Barlow, that assisted us. And we also want to shout out a BIG thanks to The JoyBus Foundation for donating cases of Molly Water that were included in the bags.
We are very grateful to all the board members that participated in this project either actively or behind the scenes … it takes a village!
