C.A.R.E. Baskets       Comfort Aid Relief Ease...

C.A.R.E. Baskets is an initiative started in 2003 by
Jenna and me.  We started this program to help
families whose children are diagnosed with cancer.  
We know what it is like, since Jenna is a cancer
survivor. She was 5 ½ when diagnosed with Leukemia
and is now a beautiful 1
5-year-old young
woman…thanks to the Maine Children’s Cancer
Program.

The C.A.R.E. Baskets are our way of helping bring
"home to the hospital". When kids are initially
diagnosed with cancer, they may be hospitalized for up
to a month or more. Families forget about bringing the
essentials with them while dealing with the news “Your
child has cancer”.

Approximately 60 children are diagnosed with cancer
and are patients at the Maine Children’s Cancer
Program (MCCP).  We create the baskets
anonymously from your donations and the MCCP
social workers give them to the families.

C.A.R.E Baskets also makes a great community service
project for your school or workplace. Jenna and I
would be happy to provide you with advice and ideas.
