Eagle Project: Cancer Survival Bags

My name is Jonathan Clymer.  I am a Life Scout with Troop 399 in Raleigh.  I started as a Tiger scout with my Dad until he passed away from cancer two years ago.  After watching 2 1/2 years of treatment, I wanted to give patients and their caregiver something to help on appointment and treatment days.  That is how I came up with Cancer Survival bags.  The money I raise will go towards putting together at least 50 bags to give to patients at UNC Cancer Hospital Infusion Center.  The bags are insulated lunch bags with two insulated hot / cold cups, a special cookbook, journal, thank you cards, and other relevant items. 

This project is very personal to me.  The support I receive will be greatly appreciated not only by me but by the patients who will receive these bags.  The infusion center treats more than 60 patients a day, Monday through Friday.  Fifty bags will touch only a small group of patients.  Any additional funds will be used to assemble more bags to touch more lives.  Thank you so much for helping me help others.
