Boredom Buster Backpacks

 In Spotlight

Children and teens battling cancer can spend days, weeks or even months in the hospital.  Boredom Buster Backpacks provide entertainment, distraction, and comfort while confined to a hospital room.  The NE Council of the Ohio Chapter-AT&T Pioneers filled 36 large drawstring backpacks with:  fun/colorful pillowcases, hard candy (combat dry mouth), lip balm (soothe dry lip side effect), fuzzy socks (to keep warm; chemo agents feel cold going into body), krazy straws (make it easier to sip while reclined in chair), and a game/craft/activity book (take mind off of treatment).  Backpacks were donated to kids undergoing cancer treatment at two local hospitals.
