With a focus on positive energy and bringing sunshine to the storm, Primed 2 Fight Foundation provides support which will improve the quality of life for patients, caregivers, and their families while fighting cancer.
Cancer treatment is intense. Patients often have to make multiple trips to the clinic and many times endure long hospital stays over the course of treatment. They never know how they are going to feel day to day, sometimes minute to minute. They crave the normal they knew prior to their diagnosis. And sadly, some patients have no one around to be with them during this difficult time. We provide the support that will lift their spirits, put a smile on their face, take the focus off of cancer and make their time in the clinic, in the hospital and their fight a little easier.
Support we provide:
"Primed 2 Fight's You Got This bag was such a huge moment for us. We had been through two and a half difficult weeks in the hospital. Enzo was hanging tough but the treatments and constant hospital visits really took their toll on him emotionally. When he was presented with the goody bag from Primed 2 Fight he really lit up...and smiled for the first time in weeks! I can't thank Primed 2 Fight enough for this simple but hugely meaningful gesture!"
--Brian DeMarco, father to Enzo DeMarco
With each round of chemo, our founder, Geoff Pastrick, would receive a Chemo Goodie Bag from his sister. It was full of his favorite treats as well as things that would help make chemo a little easier. The bags gave him something fun and happy to look forward to and he loved looking through the bag to see what each round would bring! Each goodie bag would encourage him to stay strong, provided a little sunshine during the storm and served as a reminder that YOU GOT THIS!
