"i am not alone"

Turn To Us is giving back to the community and our clients through our FREE Care Bag Program started by the TTU Oncology Committee.  Bags will be distributed through Turn To Us for our clients and be provided to Lehigh Valley Hematology Oncology in Lehighton and St. Luke's Miners Campus for their cancer patients.  Bags will vary based on the age and disease.

Care Bags will brighten the day for cancer patients, individuals with other types of major and chronic illnesses such as MS, Fibromyalgia, and rare diseases, and children with special needs and who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Items for the first set of 150 bags were purchased through a grant from Janssen and donations from community members and Dr. Helene Woodmancy.
