Giving Comfort is a nonprofit program of the McKesson Foundation. They made a stop here in in my town, Wichita Falls at the Texas Oncology center to share the message of comfort.

Let me introduce you to a fighter I met today. Her name is Jennifer Chewens she is from Wichita Falls. Jennifer received her Giving Comfort kit today. I really liked her kit because her kit included a small trunk that was decorated and was full of inspirational sayings inside! It was so darling! The messages were a simple as "keep fighting" and "I am praying for you". She stated that these kind words of comfort will help her get her thru the rough days of her treatment.She has been battling cancer for 2 years. 

While Giving Comfort was here they also passed out fans, mints, sunglasses and rubber bracelets to the patients during their treatments.

The Giving Comfort words of comfort tour made its stop to share this lovely book of comfort!
