Supplies Needed for Cancer Patient

Please join us in getting together items for a cancer patient beginning chemo on Monday.  Karen Benton's full story can be followed on her CaringBridge website. 

Her daughter has also created a Facebook event to give further details and list certain needs.

Karen has been diagnosed with breast cancer and at this point has no medical insurance.  Her husband is a long haul driver and is trying to come home every 2 weeks to visit - but as we all know, whenever he is home for even one overnight visit, it greatly cuts into their income (which is paid by the mile).

We as Christians should ban together to help this Sister in need...in prayer, encouragement, and with our giving of needed items.

The list of items needed are:

Moisturizer (unscented)
Mouth Wash (with no alcohol)
Orange Gatorade
... Banana. Strawberry or Orange Popsicles
Individual Jello (Strawberry)
Imodium
Senekote
Tylenol
Thermometer
Acid Reducer Medicine
Baby Wipes
Sturdy Plastic Utensils
Toothbrush
Scarves/Head Coverings
Satin Pillowcase
Sanitizing Wipes
Warm Pajamas (lg/xlg)
Warm House Slippers/Cozies (Sz 9)
Poise Pads (Moderate/Long)
Hand Sanitizer (Unscented/All sizes)
Shower Curtain or Liner (Clear)
Flushable Moist Wipes
Renew
Non-Latex Gloves
Crackers/Animal Crackers
Dried Fruit


Please contact me for further info - or feel free to follow the event on Facebook.

If you are my Facebook friend, you can see it under the event titled "Team Karen Benton".

Thanks in advance for your support,

Loving Radically Through Christ,

Melissa

  1. Every healthcare provider should switch to an EMR solution. Paper based records and prescriptions are a thing of the past now and it would be best for both doctors and patients to take advantage of their features and accessibility.
