The Woiner Foundation delivers chemo care bags to Hillman Cancer Center

On Friday, March 9th, The Woiner Foundation delivered 10 chemo care bags to be distributed to pancreatic cancer patients at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Shadyside.

The colorful neoprene bags included organic snacks, a Panera Bread gift card, organic skincare products donated by Badger Balm, a beautiful Sterling Silver “hope” bracelet or necklace and a hand-knitted purple hat donated to the foundation at last year’s 321 Ride fundraising event.

“Anyone who has sat with a person going through cancer treatment, or undergone treatment themselves, knows what a draining time that can be, ” said Woiner Foundation Executive Director Jessica Fera.  “We hope the bags make the patients smile and add a little bright spot to an otherwise difficult day.”
