DONATING TO CARE PAX & FRIENDS IS DONATING TO YOUR COMMUNITY

  • Every day, an average of 741 women hear the words “You have breast cancer.  You need chemotherapy.”

  • Every year, 1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed within your community alone

WHAT WE FEEL UPON THIS DIAGNOSIS?

FEAR. ANXIETY. LONELINESS. HOPELESSNESS.

That is why breast cancer survivors Sharon Crews and Lucy Bedgood teamed up to equip women with the tools they need as they prepare to go into battle against breast cancer.  Not only do our Got Your Backpax Support Systems help women understand what to expect lies behind the chemo doors, but they also supply them with items that bring comfort and help in effectively dealing with the not-so-pleasantries of chemotherapy. Originating in the small southern community of Waycross, Georgia, Sharon simply wanted to make it easier for women to handle the complex emotional and physical struggles associated with  chemotherapy following her own difficult experience through it.  In reflection she said to herself, “Gosh, it could have been so much easier had I just known….”  What started as a single little pink backpack given to another woman within this humble town has led to the distribution of these resource paxs all cross the country!

 

Got You Backpax Support Systems brings help for the present and hope for the future.  Our goal is to put these essential Paxs into the hands of every woman in your area as they enter the uncharted path of cancer treatment.

We have many, many testimonies of how these support systems have touched women who received them, but as Kathy from South Carolina said after receiving her pax from a friend:  

 

“Now I am ready emotionally and physically to start chemo. Now I know I can do it!”

 

Communities are now coming together to ignite their efforts to supply the women of their areas with Got Your Backpax Support Systems.   They want to assure that no one is left alone during difficult times.  As a team, we can reach every women in their times of need.
