Learn How You Can Help Cancer Patients During Recovery

Carebox provides free, at home supplies to cancer patients. They dropped in to show us how they help the tiniest among us in the fight against cancer.  With a team of four women, they have delivered nearly $110,000 worth of care supplies. Patients pick out what they need and Carebox sends the products directly to their home. Making life a little easier on the caretaker along with meeting the needs of the patient. Carebox’s mission is to improve the lives of cancer patients by providing high quality essential care supplies. We met Ruby who has been battling cancer for a few months. She is a patient who benefits from Carebox. The hospital gown she is wearing is from a local company called, Heroic Hearts. They spiced up children’s gowns. With people donating it helps patients get what they need. Every patient has different needs and making donations makes a difference and changes lives. The products Carebox offers is not just for kids, it’s also for teens and adults. To learn more about Carebox and how to meet a patient, donate supplies go to careboxprogram.org or call 512-296-2180.
