Cancer CAREpoint Care Kits
Cancer CAREpoint Care Kits

Cancer CAREpoint is dedicated to transforming support for cancer patients and survivors, their families, and caregivers in the Bay Area through personalized, one-on-one Counseling, Assistance, Resources, and Education. One of the areas of support is to provide CARE Kits that address a variety of needs related to cancer treatment, survivorship, and caring for someone impacted by cancer at  no cost to the recipient. The kits include items that may be needed when going to appointments (such as hand sanitizer, tissues, notebook and pens) as well as comfort and support items (such as hats and port pillows made and donated by members of the community). At our meeting, we will be writing notes of support to be provided with these kits.
