Welcome to Fighting Cancer, Inc.'s webpage! We
are excited to launch this website a program called "Sunshine Box Project."
Receiving a diagnosis of
cancer can be a frightening experience. So much is unknown. The imagination can run wild. It is our hope
to make the experience a little easier and a lot less stressful. We visit new chemotherapy
patients at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, on the first day of treatment and deliver a Sunshine
Box Project package to them. Our volunteers who deliver the boxes have had experience with cancer, either as a
survivor or caregiver. We are able to encourage and hopefully provide some hope to the patients as we share our experiences
with them and answer questions they have about what to expect. We have seen so many smiles light up a
face that was etched with worry when we arrived, tears of joy, words of thanks. It has truly been as much of a blessing
to those of us involved as volunteers as it is to the recipients.
Please see "Recipient
Responses" page of this website to read some of our recipients' notes! What fun!!
Please bear with us as we improve this website.
We're doing it on our own and none of us has experience!
