How is Your Donation Used?
CHEMO CARE PACKAGES
The original Lemons of Love Chemo Care Package was created by Jill while she was going through treatment for cancer. She called it her “making lemonade” project, as she shared gifts with others. The package is filled with carefully selected items that helped her with the side effects of chemotherapy, but also some items that just added a little extra love. Now, she shares them with others all over the world. Those who donate to Lemons of Love help us create chemo care package that are sent to those in need. In addition to sending individual care packages, we also assemble and deliver packages to patients in hospitals and cancer centers.
Mount Prospect, IL Location
In 2018, we opened the Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center in Mt. Prospect, IL. The goal of the Center is to provide wellness classes, educational programming, and opportunities to build community for those impacted by cancer--including survivors, caregivers and loved ones. Our programs, offered at no charge to participants, include yoga, meditation, creative arts, patient education and nutrition. Current program partners include Wellness House in Hinsdale, Northwest Community Cancer Care, and local businesses. We have a dedicated space for private head shavings, working with 37 local hairdressers who are on call to volunteer their time at our building. In addition, we welcome local groups and volunteers to The Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center to help us fund and fill care packages.
