October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with a focus on increasing awareness of the disease. The hope is to encourage women to make checking themselves monthly, a habit.
While I was on the National LWML site, I came across Breast Cancer Survival kits – September 2016. These kits can be given to someone you might know that has been recently impacted by breast cancer or for your local hospital and breast cancer support groups.

The Breast Cancer survival Kits may include:

  • ‘in a word” by Heidi Floyd, “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Cancer Book”, other uplifting books, Mustard Seeds, etc.
  • a pretty scarf
  • homemade soup mixes
  • large soup mug
  • prayer shawl
  • water bottle
  • lip balm
  • cozy socks
  • unscented travel-size hand sanitizer
  • woman’s bible

Place in a large bag for easy carrying and storing.

To find this project and many other ideas, at lwml.org click on Mission Servants and choose Service from the drop down menu.
Don’t forget to share your mission servant activities! Please share through the LWML email at depgo@lwml.org. Pictures are also appreciated!
