Cancer survivor Joanne Edwards talks with CURE® about the profound gratitude she felt when she received a ‘Caring and Sharing’ basket from a charity organization, and shares how their generosity made her want to pay it forward to other survivors.
After receiving her own “caring and sharing” basket from More Than Friends — something she says felt like Christmas – uterine cancer survivor Joanne Edwards decided to pay it forward to others facing a similar journey she went through.
More Than Friends “services the struggling” by visiting patients undergoing treatment for cancer and distributes “caring and sharing” baskets — which are full of necessities people going through chemotherapy and radiation should have, but don’t usually realize they will need.
“When I got the basket, it had all the things I needed that I didn’t think I needed,” said Edwards. “As Dr. Elise Busby says, ‘You don’t realize the things that you’ll need when you’re going through this condition.’”
