Komen race. We wanted to get out and talk to people about the boxes and see what people had to say. We got great feedback. Many survivor’s told us they wished they would have had the opportunity to get a subscription when they were going through treatment. I talked to many of them about one of the fundamental ideas behind the TREATMiNT Box– that an ongoing and constant connection to friends and family is a lifeline when you are going through cancer.

One survivor made a particularly poignant comment. She said, “Hope is derived from our connections with friends and family.” I thought how brilliant this was in it’s simplicity. To continue to fight, setback after setback, we need to know we matter to someone. After all, this is what being connected to friends and family is all about.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
