Bundles of Hope Program

Providing Comfort and Support to Breast Cancer Patients

The Pink Ribbon Society initiated the Bundles of Hope Program in March of 2010. We aim to offer support and comfort to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients undergoing treatment at local oncology offices.

Our Bundles of Hope Program is intended to provide a sense of comfort for those embarking on their first treatment. The reusable bag contains a warm-soft blanket, a handmade heart shaped pillow made by our local GFWC Chapter, a coloring for Hope coloring book and pencils, a puzzle book and other reading materials, and a squeeze stress ball. The pillow can be placed under the arm to relieve some of the pressure felt following your surgery. Coloring has been proven to provide a distraction during recovery. Studies have shown activities, such as coloring, can have a positive effect on recovery from any kind of trauma. It is shown to induce relaxation and can provide calming to alleviate stress, fear and anxiety.
