Testimonials

“Thank you so much for your caring gift bag. You thought of everything to the smallest detail! I lived in Fort Wayne in the early 90’s and even then I was so impressed with the ‘City of Churches.’…I was stunned when I found I had breast cancer; but God has embraced me with so much love and caring which far exceeds any pain I’ve had. I give thanks to God for your concern.”

“Thank you for the reassurance of the Necessities Bag. It helped reduce some of the stressors of going into surgery by feeling a little prepared, knowing what to expect. The little ‘comfort’ pillows are in use constantly since my surgery 5 days ago. I appreciate the water bottle, Lip Balm, Kleenex pack, Life Savers and emery board. The compact notebook has become a journal started 2 days after surgery. Thank you for this booklet and wonderful support!”

“The undershirts turned out to be the most used item along with the cushioned bandages. I was terrified going to the hospital before surgery. I had no idea what to bring with me nor did I know what to expect. The contents of the bag truly helped me and was much appreciated.”
Lynne, So. Milford, IN

“To the Dear Friends who sent me the necessities bag,

I received your necessities bag while I was in the hospital recovering from a mastectomy for stage 3 inflammatory breast cancer. The next night Angel Hubby and I stayed in the Care House adjacent to the cancer center.

We opened the necessities bag and saw immediately how much I needed the undershirts and bandages. The comfort pillows were perfect for the long ride home. I am so thankful for everything you packed for me – the lifesavers, note cards, water bottle, Cottonelle fresh wipes. Kleenex, lip balms, emery board, and folder and pen, and of course the lovely carry bag.

As I handled and looked at everything my heart was so touched. I could tell that those who already knew my need packed the bag. Your act of generosity and kindness is something I will not forget.

My husband David and I are committed Christians, yet our human side has been so weak at times in the past many months of 5 chemo treatments and now my recent surgery. What would we do without the Lord Jesus and our Christian family in Christ?”
