Wednesday’s Hometown Hero is the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and their “Friends Like Me” boxes.
The coalition is sending free care packages to individuals in Pennsylvania who have received a breast cancer diagnosis within the last six months.
Each customized box contains resources, small gifts, cosmetics, and more as a reminder that they’re not alone.
“We do this to support these women until we reach our ultimate goal, which is to find a cure for breast cancer so our daughters don’t have to,” said Pat Halpin-Murphy of the Pa. Breast Cancer Coalition.
The organization has sent more than one thousand care packages to the newly-diagnosed at a time when they need it most.
