About Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels & Comfycozy for Chemo MSU…
The Comfycozy for Chemo MSU club of volunteers strives to support foundations in the community and give back when they can. More recently, their goal as a club has been to support Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels; a nonprofit based in Arizona that gives special “Comfycozy for Chemo” t-shirts to those battling cancer. These shirts were first created by Amanda Hope herself; a passionate 12 year old who wanted to give all children a sense of dignity and control while undergoing treatment. This adaptive t-shirt has zippers, buttons, snaps, pockets, and openings to allow nurses to access the child’s port while allowing them to remain covered. Something that is so important to warriors battling cancer.
“It made accessing her central line much easier, and reduced her anxiety around it too. She liked showing the phlebotomist the zippers and how it worked. She also received many compliments from hospital staff. Thank you to who sponsored her as well as we appreciate it so much!”– Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels Comfycozy’s for Chemo Recipient
About U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation. . .
Each February, U CAN-CER VIVE delivers hundreds of UR My Valentine Teddy Bear Packages to our local Michigan hospitals as a way of bringing love, support and a smile to those spending time in the hospital. These hospital deliveries consist of hundreds of teddy bear donations, and they deliver to 7 amazing hospitals here in Michigan, including Sparrow Hospital, Beaumont, Henry Ford Health System, McLaren Hospital, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
Aside from this, U CAN-CER VIVE gives 100% of profits raised to their cause of providing vital funds for cancer research to create a cancer free world.
U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation and Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels are two supportive nonprofits that each have their own mission of giving back in the cancer community. As a combined effort to give back together this year, U CAN-CER VIVE and Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels will be raising funds to make Valentine’s Day extra special for children and young adults here in our community.
