Meet Nicole and Robert
Nicole is a CaredFOR

You Made Nicole Feel CaredFOR!

At just 26 years old, Nicole was shocked to learn that she has Breast Cancer. She shared with us that she loves swimming, puzzles, and photography and hopes to have the energy to continue these hobbies. Her husband and small children are rallying around her, but she needed a community of support to help her get the essential care supplies she needs to help her thrive throughout treatment.

That is where CareBOX stepped in! CareDonors visited Nicole's wishlist at to get her all the supplies she needed and within 2 weeks, a trunk full of  CareBOXes were delivered to her home. Nicole's response:

"I didn't think I would get all of this, I think I'm going to cry. When I beat this I want to help you guys somehow. I don't have a high school degree but I care about helping people."  
Robert is a CareDRIVER

Robert Helped Nicole Feel CaredFOR!

Robert first got involved with CareBOX as a CareDONOR. He was so moved by his experience donating to one of our CaredFOR, Brenda who was battling Breast Cancer, he shared this:

"I spend so much money needlessly, wastefully, carelessly. This made me feel wise, helpful and respectful. Brenda, you should know that helping you has helped me."

Last week,  Robert became a CareDRIVER. He took 1 1/2 hours of his day to reach out to Nicole to schedule delivery at a time that was convenient to her and delivered the essential care supplies directly to her home. 

When Nicole shared that she wants to help other patients when she beats cancer, Robert told her "we'd love to have you."   Robert was asked to rate his delivery experience on a scale of 1 to 5 and he rated it a 5, adding "I loved it!"

Help a Friend Who is Battling Cancer
Help Your Friend Feel CaredFOR!

Cancer has a way of making all of us feel utterly powerless. As a friend or caregiver you want to help, but sometimes you just don't know how or where to start! 

In Central Texas, CareBOX has made it simple for you to regain some of that power by signing cancer patients up to receive the essential care supplies needed to thrive throughout treatment.
