Sometimes, little acts of kindness and caring can make a big difference, especially for someone fighting cancer. A soothing body mist, beautiful artwork, tranquil lighting or a cozy warm blanket can make all the difference during a hospital stay.
Comfort Project 360 was founded in 2014 to create a caring, tranquil and comforting environment for individuals undergoing cancer treatment and their loved ones at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. After being touched by cancer in different ways, Livingston residents Hyla Weiss and Suzanne Unger established Comfort Project 360 to ease the minds and lift the spirits of adults living with cancer, as well as to compliment the care provided by the Saint Barnabas Department of Radiation Oncology. Comfort Project 360 patient programs include: a mobile cart that delivers healthy snacks to patients with a personal touch; kits filled with items to soothe body, mind and spirit; and scarves and hats to welcome new patients and celebrate the completion of treatment. In addition, they are renovating the East Wing and 23 infusion rooms to create a more soothing environment for patients and loved ones.
This Sunday October 14th, Comfort Project 360 will be hosting a 5K walk/run at the South Mountain Reservation in Millburn to benefit their mission. All proceeds will go directly to heal the mind and spirt of more than 100 cancer patients daily. For easy online registration: RWJBH.org/reasontowalk
