Founded by EVWL member Alyssa Dinowitz, after the passing of her mother Mariann Gofonia (a four time breast cancer survivor), Chemo Companions provides support to individuals undergoing chemotherapy.
Every Friday our Chemo Companion volunteers visit with people undergoing chemotherapy. We’ve provided 1500 goodie bags filled with lotion, blankets, snack bars and activities to help pass the time during treatment. Each week our Chemo Companions also bake and deliver dozens of cookies to the people receiving treatment.
Over 4,000 individuals have been served by this project!
