Non-profit brings holiday meals to breast cancer survivors
A non-profit is helping bring holiday cheer to those fighting breast cancer.
why do treatment on Thursday so that I can kind of recoup over the weekend? Michelle Edmondson was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago. She understands the importance of connecting with other women fighting the same battle. You have someone else who gets it. They understand the highs and the lows and so much more of us than is more than just physical. They also kind of get the emotional side of it, you know, of on knowing when someone else just need to kind of pick me up of like, This is just rough and I just need event and I've seen someone to get it and go, You're right, That does It just sucks right now. But Cova derailed some of that fellowship. We had to cut short. Our weren't able to do our weekend retreat, and so we've kinda had to flip things upside down. And so instead of having are thriving circles once a month in person, we've been doing that virtually for this Thanksgiving project. Pink and nearly 100 volunteers porch delivered pre cooked dinners, turkey breast with all the trimmings to 235 breast cancer survivors in Nebraska and western Iowa. They may not have the energy levels that they would to prepare meal for their families. And this thes meals are pre cooked by Hy Vee, and all they have to do is warm them up. Jamie Gates of Project Pink says the pandemic won't stop them from keeping cancer survivors connected. We're trying to reach people on, hugged their hearts of virtual way and whether that's leaving little surprises on their doorstep. That's something that we're looking forward to doing as the new year comes around, because I don't see us gathering in person quite yet. For Michelle, it's a chance to help other cancer survivors as well as herself. But we're gonna acknowledge today is rough. But tomorrow is gonna be better. I'm gonna make a difference, and I'm gonna do something for someone else, and that helps me. That's a big part of it, too.
