Why Comfort Matters to a Cancer Patient
This year, over 1.6 million people in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer, and nearly one quarter of U.S. cancer patients will exhaust ALL savings as a result of treatment costs. Even worse, 11% will struggle to afford food or basic necessities due to treatment expense.
Cancer patients in this country receive an incredibly high level of care from public and private health systems. However, they are unlikely to receive much in the way of basic comfort items to help them get through treatment with dignity, hope and comfort.
The Comfort Kits from Giving Comfort aren’t the cure for cancer, but these gifts for cancer patients do provide individuals with the comfort and caring they deserve.
