Messages of Support

 

Kat Kramer learned the true value of community during her treatment for breast cancer at Fox Chase. The outpouring of compassion and support she received during her treatment inspired her to give back, so she began making neck pillows for patients undergoing radiation and chemotherapy.

In the spirit of Kat’s selfless generosity, we reached out to the Fox Chase community and asked for messages of support that we could share with our patients undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment, alone and without the support of family members during COVID-19. The messages below reflect the hope and kindness shared by the Fox Chase community, letting our patients know that they are never alone.
