MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Chemo Comfort will raise spirits with its third annual Cocktails for Comfort fundraising event Oct. 9-18 at establishments throughout New York City and Westchester County.
“Starting chemotherapy is a frightening experience," said Anne Marie Paolucci. "We are saying to patients ‘Here is a box of tools put together by someone who’s been there. Know that you are not alone and these tools will help you take care of yourself during this difficult journey.’ ”
Paolucci, a two-time breast cancer survivor, founded the volunteer-run organization in 2003. Chemo Comfort provides kits of products for managing chemotherapy's side effects.
Participating establishments will create signature cocktails and donate proceeds to Chemo Comfort.
