Thank you for doing these packages!!!! Receiving them so unexpectedly made SUCH a happy impression and I found it to be fiercely encouraging! I felt less invisible and alone in my day-to-day during my own treatment. And THAT is priceless especially during such an otherwise dark time.
Shannon, Even though we have never met you, we wanted to send a little package to help brighten up your day as you continue with your treatment and recovery. We want to let you know that we are all thinking positive thoughts, sending you positive energy and vibes. Hope you enjoy :)

Hi Jill. I wanted to send the pictures that I took of the bags at south shore. We weren’t able to include any patients, but in this picture, we have representation by our nurses, Dr Jella, medical assistants, schedulers, a cancer nurse navigator and a dietitian. Everyone was super grateful and the patients are loving them! Thanks again for your generosity!
