We are raising $7,500 to complete 100 Kits this year. ($75 each)
The Comfort Care Kits for breast cancer surgery patients are assembled by our club members. The items included in the Kits are supplies that are needed after surgery, personal care items to refresh and revive, comfort items to ease recovery and some items to help regain arm strength, if the doctor advises . We include a custom-created shirt that accommodates drainage tubing for those patients who need it but more importantly, it has the easy on, easy off feature of a velcro tabbed front panel. A light-weight blanket and a pillow (primarily for seatbelt comfort) top off the reusable tote. The completed Comfort Kits are delivered to the Cancer Center of Ventura County for distribution.
My name is Grace W. I am having a mastectomy in 2 weeks. And when I went in Thursday for my appointment, they gave me the lovely bag that the Soroptimist women had made and I am just calling to Thank You VERY much.
It’s obvious there is a lot of caring out there. And I just wanted to let you know I very much appreciate that. Thank You very, very, very much (choking up a bit). It’s nice to know there are a lot of women out there and that we understand each other and support each other. And
Thank you for your kindness. Have a good day.
