Bag of Hope

Our Bag of Hope is a powerful tool in the fight against ovarian cancer. It is provided to newly diagnosed patients for comfort and support.

Have you, a friend or family member been recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer in South Carolina? Hopefully, you live in an area where we have a survivor volunteer available to deliver a Bag of Hope in person. If not, we can probably ship one to you. Please contact our office at 864-373-6306 or or fill out the form below to inquire about the options to receive a Bag of Hope for an ovarian cancer patient.

Here’s what you will find in a Bag of Hope:

  • A heavy duty tote bag with a water-proof liner to carry to your chemotherapy sessions
  • Insulated tumbler to keep lots of cool water close at hand – staying hydrated is important!
  • Two pair of comfortable fuzzy slipper socks
  • A bottle of hand sanitizer
  • Newman’s Own Ginger cookies, ginger mints and chamomile tea to address nausea and other side effects
  • Some really sour lemon drops that some say help when chemo interferes with your sense of taste
  • Journal and SCOCF pen to track appointments, medications or just your thoughts
  • Hand-knitted teal cap made especially for you by local volunteers
  • A teal silicone awareness wristband
  • Ovarian cancer awareness ribbon lapel pin
  • An SCOCF emery board to keep your nails smooth
  • A bottle of teal nail polish
  • A zippered pouch first aid kit
  • A small pack of “Kleenex”
