OHC LogoMelissa Patrick and Keri Cunningham are two very busy women. They are also both breast cancer survivors.  And they have managed to make time to provide comfort to other cancer patients.

“Our goal is to raise enough money at our Bunco for Breast Cancer event to fill 48 chemo care bags. Our hope is the bags will provide encouragement to the patients receiving treatment,” said Melissa.

Melissa and Keri continually host fundraisers so they can buy items to fill gift bags. One of their events was Bunco for Breast Cancer at Coffee Cup Overflowing in Fairfield Township. The money raised was used to purchase the bags, chap stick, life savers, gift cards, activity books,  socks and amore. Melissa and Keri gave the bags to cancer patients at OHC’s Fairfield office.

You can still donate if you would like to brighten a cancer patient’s day. Just contact Melissa here.

The event is part of the Thirty-One Give Back program. Thirty-One Gifts was founded in 2003 by Cindy Monroe to help women by giving them the opportunity to run their own successful business. Melissa is an independent Thirty-one Gift Consultant. The company operates Thirty-One Give Back program, whose mission is to celebrate others for who they are, giving them the support and self-esteem needed to lead a purposeful, thriving life.
