Welcome to Fighting Cancer, Inc.'s webpage! We
are excited to launch this website and The Sunshine Box Project.
Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be a frightening experience. So much is unknown. The imagination
can run wild.
is our hope to make the experience a little easier and a lot less stressful.
We visit new chemotherapy patients at Novant Health Presbyterian
Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina,
on the first day of treatment and deliver a Sunshine Box 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 may have about what to expect. We have seen so many smiles
light up a face
was etched with worry when we arrived, tears of joy, and 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.
