Supporting Veterans and Cancer Patients

My name is Connor Crase and I am a Boy Scout from Troop 377 in Mooresville, North Carolina. I am currently a Life Scout working on my Eagle Scout Project: a project to support our Veterans who are going through chemotherapy at our local VA Medical Center in nearby Salisbury, NC. The project entails creating bags filled with supplies to help give these Veterans some comfort during their battles with cancer. Chemotherapy comes with a lot of terrible side effects, including but not limited to:
 
  • Extreme sensitivity to cold
  • Hair loss
  • Nausea
  • Perpetual metallic taste in one's mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Nerve pain in hands and feet
  • Cracked/dry skin
 
My project entails raising funds to create bags filled with items that these Veterans may find useful and comforting during their infusion treatments. They can bring the bag/items with them for each infusion treatment and use the items for comfort. The bags will include:
 
  • Warm winter hat and gloves
  • Warm socks
  • Blanket
  • Hard candy
  • Skin lotion
  • Lip balm
  • Paracord bracelet - A small token of appreciation for their service
  • Books/magazines - To help occupy their time
  • Water bottle
  • Snacks
 
My fundraising goal is $1800 and I plan to create 75 of these bags in total. In the event I raise more than $1800, more bags will be created and distributed to more Veterans. These bags will be distributed through the Oncology Department at the Salisbury VA Medical Center.
 
Thank you for taking the time to consider my project. Any donations will be put to good use and are greatly appreciated.
