Childhood Cancer Awareness Month | Hunter's 14th Birthday

 


We've designed and created these amazing kits!  

In a huge effort to keep kiddos fighting cancer safe while in treatment, especially during COVID and Flu season, we've created these kits to help the kiddos and their families keep everything in one place that will help them fight some serious germs.  

During and in between treatments their bodies experience an incredible amount of distress and their immune systems are being rocked to no end.  A common cold, let alone COVID or the Flu, can really do some serious damage to their severely compromised systems.  These kits are designed to help parents and kiddos keep the essentials close and ready to use and travel whenever they need to be aware of germs as they are coming and going to and from the hospital or home.  

It can be worn across their shoulder, placed on a table, strapped in the car, hooked to a stroller, thrown into another tote, they can always have their essentials on hand and ready to use when they need them most.  

We've designed these kits with some very amazing assistance from TAH Life, whose bags are stylish, functional and extremely well made.  These bags will get used a great bit and can completely withstand the daily and constant use, and will especially last for those that are in treatment for months or sometimes years at a time.  


Each handcrafted bag comes with the following:

2oz. Bottle of Trader Joe's Hand Sanitizer inside front magnetic pocket for easy access.

A Handcrafted Reusable Cloth Mask with filter pocket & washable laundry bag from TAH Life. Mask is kept in an easy access pocket, which will keep it separate from everything else.  

A Contactless Touch-Tool that's ready to use at the teller, credit card machines, and assist on opening doors with handles, so that fingers do not have to touch any contaminated surfaces.

Anti-Bacterial Wipes to wipe down any surfaces, wipe down phones, wipe down inside of car, or any other surface that is touched on a regular basis that might harbor germs. 

2-Pair of Latex Gloves (disposable) if needed to pump gas, go into certain stores or use in public restrooms. 

Tiny Trash Sacs for used wipes and gloves.

All Natural Chapstick by Naturistick since lips tend to get dry taking masks on and off all day.

Travel Size Hand Lotion since hands can get dry from the constant sanitizing and hand washing. 

Peppermint Breath Drops from Crest because everyone loves a fresh scent when you are breathing in your own breath all day!

Personal Pen for use at the grocery store, bank teller, pharmacy or anywhere else where you would rather not use the public pen.  

A Digital Thermometer to check for fevers, which is a constant and never ending thing while battling childhood cancer.  

This bag is extremely well made of material that can easily be wiped down and disinfected on a regular basis.  

................................

(Due to the nature of COVID and the difficulty and unpredictability of the supply chain, there are times when some of these products might be out of stock.  In that case, we will fill it with an extra item that is currently in stock.) 

When supplies run out, we've designed the bag so that it can be refilled with local products of the same size.

This bag also has room for a phone and a stash of cash or credit cards if it's the only bag they choose to travel with :) 

And when they've beaten cancer's BUTT, they can use this bag for a travel organizer, make-up or toiletry bag, phone & charger organizer...truly whatever they'd like, it's very multi-functional!   

Each bag is a $100 donation and we will be mailing them to our (4) major children's hospitals that we support: OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and CHOC Children's. Donations also help us cover the cost of packaging and informational materials as well as shipping expenses.

You can also donate or send one to a front-line worker or patient at a different hospital, or an essential worker anywhere across the country, send one off to a college student, get one for yourself, anyone at all who you think needs these essentials handy and ready to go!  A portion of the proceeds benefit the foundation!!

Bags are being produced now and will be sent out the week of Hunter's 14th birthday which is on September 21st!
