We are excited to announce that a chapter of Positively Pink Packages has been established in DeKalb County, Illinois. Positively Pink Packages is a non-profit organization that provides vital resources to breast cancer patients free of charge. Positively Pink takes the best information, coping tools and comfort aids and puts them all in one place.
This new chapter will provide breast cancer patients in DeKalb County with Positively Pink’s signature Diagnosis Care packages. These care packages contain items such as a post surgical pillow, DVDs, inspirational and educational books, and publications that help patients understand breast cancer, the choices they face and the resources available to help them and their families.
These care packages will be provided to health care personnel such as surgeons, physicians and women’s centers that are involved with the diagnosis of patients. The packages are also available at The Cancer Center at Kishwaukee Community Hospital or by calling Illinois Chapter Director, Cheryl Chilson, at (815) 501-3297.
Supporting the physical, emotional and educational needs of local breast cancer patients, Positively Pink is made possible through the generosity of the community. All of the money raised through Positively Pink’s Illinois chapter will remain with this chapter for the support of breast cancer patients in DeKalb County.
