Starting cancer treatment can be a physically and emotionally overwhelming experience. By creating a care bag with small items and a kind note, you can provide some encouragement to an NYOH patient starting treatment. Ideal for any workplace teambuilding effort, youth project, or service activity, the NYOH Community Cancer Foundation is seeking patient care bags from our community. We will distribute the bags to patients at an NYOH cancer site.
Thank you to Dr Karen Tedesco of NYOH and her son Evan for assembling 20 care bags for patients at the Hudson Cancer Center! They are very much appreciated!

If you’d like to create your own patient care bags to donate, visit the NYOH Community Cancer Foundation website for more information.
