Pretty in Pink

"Recovery is not a race. You don’t have to feel guilty if it takes you longer than you thought it would."

Chemo Bags

Each Chemo Bag is made up with some off-the-shelf supplies and some unique little creations. We normally include hand sanitizer, bracelets, crossword puzzle & pen, tea bags & cup, candy, and a pair of socks along with a personalized note of encouragement, and a uniquely designed Bandana. The note is typically written by one of our girl scouts and the bandana, a collaborative effort with her mom.

The bags designs themselves are each a product of the mind of our scouts. So the bag you receive could have been created by a six-year-old or fifteen-year-old, or any age in between. The Chemo Bag project brings these ladies together once a year and focuses their minds not just on the fun part of the creations, but on the recovery that so many survivors are going through on a daily basis. Together we wrap each bag with loving thoughts and wishes that will hopefully reach the heart of the survivor.

Made with Love

Each bag is assembled, not as a production item, but as a project of love by ladies that care.

Mothers & Daughters

Each bag is uniquely created by girl scouts and their moms at our annual event.

Touching Hearts

And just every now and then, we get feedback that lets us know they care that we care.

Touch of Love

There is genuine feeling of caring and indeed love that goes into each Pretty in Pink bag. We have assembled a simple collection of "treats 'n thoughts" to help each recovering cancer patient in the imediate post-treatment days of therapy.

  • Personalized Bandana
  • Bracelets
  • Crossword Puzzle & Pen
  • Tea Bags
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Bag of Candy
  • Pair of Socks
  • Note of Encouragement

You're not Alone

The note of encouragement is something that is handwritten, with careful thought, by a mother or daughter participating in our annual event.

While they may not know the specific individual that eventually gets the note, they place themselves momentarily in the situation and identify with the pain and anguish that the reader may well be going through.

Days of therapy can be dark and lonely days and it is important to know that while you might indeed be going through it physically alone, you have sisters in spirit that are willing you forward and cheering for you each step of the way.

Care to participate in our project?

If you have time to help in our event or perhaps something to donate (in quantity) that you feel might have a place in our care bag, please let us know.
