As a oncology nurse, I meet with patients on the day of their follow up visit with their surgical oncologist. If they are meeting with me, it is because they have been told they need to start chemotherapy. Patients were hoping to never have sit across the desk of an oncology nurse and learn all about chemotherapy. The satchels of caring provide a warm human touch to the binders filled with pages of information that can seem so daunting on this day. The women I have distributed the hand-made satchels like them very much, it truly can bring a smile to their face when they remember all those volunteers that are out there and care about them. I believe that when we incorporate the satchels to their first visit, they begin to understand there are groups and services out in the community and they are reaching out to them.
