My name is Eve I am currently a high school junior. I started a new organization called Wrapped in Love to better serve women undergoing chemotherapy treatment for various cancers. After spending some time with a family friend who recently underwent chemotherapy for breast cancer, I realized that there seemed to be an unserved need. She shared with me some of the challenges she faced during their treatment and recovery. Of course, one of the many things that helped her through the process was the kindness shown by others. For example, the gift of a shawl by a staff member to stay warm in the chemotherapy suite. I was moved by her story and started trying to think of ways to help others going through this very difficult treatment. I have learned in the last few months as I have been working to launch this project that any gesture of kindness could mean more than you imagined.
This Go Fund Me campaign was formed to raise money to buy head scarves for women to be included in the chemotherapy suite or to be given directly. All funds raised through this campaign will be used to purchase scarves for patients attending the chemotherapy suite at Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Connecticut The scarves are $25 each. Our goal is to raise enough money through this campaign to make a scarf available to any patient that needs one. The initial plan is to stock the suite with twenty scarves.
