Thank you for helping us bring JOY and sunshine to patients with cancer.
A few months after Joy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer she was sitting with her sisters during chemo. She was discussing how thankful she was for the amazing support system she was surrounded by. Joy began thinking about all those that would be at the infusion center around the holidays and a little idea popped into her head, "What if we brought a little JOY to those undergoing going treatment the week of Thanksgiving?" Little did she know asking her community for a few hand sanitizers, fuzzy socks, travel lotions, Kleenex and some lotto scratchers would turn into hundreds of Bags of JOY being delivered to the Cancer Center over the next few months. More and more donations came in and Bringing JOY came to Life.
Joy's hope for Bringing JOY is to bring a little JOY to those diagnosed with cancer and remind them they are not alone and others are thinking of them...One Little Bag at a Time.
