Mission statement: Our free tote program to first time chemotherapy patients sustains dignity, provides comfort, and relieves anxiety, allowing patients to make the most of their treatment.
Purpose: provide first time chemotherapy patients with a portable package of personal care and comfort items to ease the stress and anxiety of treatment.
The operations are run on an entirely volunteer basis. Totes are distributed in the Northern Illinois region, through arrangements with SwedishAmerican Health System, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rockford Health System and Beloit Health System.
How can I help? Volunteer days are held the 3rd Thursday of every month at the Chemo Cargo office, 5069 Edgemere Court, Roscoe, IL 61073, inside Share Serendipity, at 6pm. You can also shop online with Amazon Smile and a portion of the sale will be donated to us. You can also use iGive when you search online!
