Individuals who knit or sew can contribute special items for our care packages. Port pillows are small pillows that attach to a car seat belt to protect chemo ports. For a pattern, click here: http://mytaylormade.blogspot.com/2013/07/breast-cancer-port-pillows-tutorial.html


We also put handmade knit hats in our care packages. Please use soft yarn and avoid bulky seams.

About LEMONS OF LOVE INC

Location:

433 East Golf Road, Des Plaines, IL 60016, US

Mission Statement

Lemon of Love's mission is to share packages and make moments for anyone impacted by cancer.

Description

Lemons of Love’s Chemo Care Packages are filled with quality products with a purpose. Designed to help ease the short-term side effects of treatment, these packages also offer strength and support to keep patients moving forward. We also share Kids’ Holiday Care Packages and a specially-designed Veterans’ Chemo Care Package. Most of our packages are funded through philanthropic support and delivered as gifts to oncology centers. In 2018, we opened the Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center in Mt. Prospect, IL to provide free wellness programs and build community for those impacted by cancer-including survivors, caregivers and loved ones.
