**Care Package Request Note**
We here at the Breathe for Bea Foundation hope you are all doing the best you can in these uncertain times. Our organization just wanted to update everyone on the status of our care packages. Because of the threat of the Coronavirus (COVID 19), we are suspending mailing packages for the time being. Even though we have gone to great lengths to sanitize the boxes and their contents, we feel that while in route the package is handled by too many others beyond our control. So for now, for the safety of everyone, the packages will stay here in our office. We are still accepting requests but with the understanding that they will not be mailed until we believe it’s safe to do so. We do not want to put anyone at risk. If you have any questions, including updates on the status of an existing request, please email us at [email protected]. Take care of yourself and your loved ones and remember “WE GOT THIS”….
Hospitals are no fun, especially when you are there for days, weeks or months at a time as part of treating Cystic Fibrosis. One of Ashley’s / Bea’s most favorite sayings was “Today is a Good Day for a Good Day”, and it is our hope that we can bring a little sunshine to the day of a CF patient with one of our care packages, and make their stay in the hospital a bit easier and more comfortable. We are also happy to send out home care packages!
The contents of our care packages vary depending on the age of the patient, but will generally consist of some essentials as well as items that will help to bring some of the comforts of home to their stay, or that will simply brighten up their day. These could include coloring books, puzzles, toys, food gift cards, snacks, water bottle, some Breathe for Bea gear, and more. We are also happy to include personal item requests whenever possible!
We’ve sent care packages to recipients all across the U.S., and we hope to reach all 50 states! If you, a family member, or friend would like a care package due to a current or upcoming hospital stay or just to bring a little happiness and cheer to your or someone else’s day, please contact us by filling out the form below. The Breathe for Bea Foundation would love the opportunity to do all that we can to help make the days of CF patients “good days”.
We value your privacy and will not share your personal information. If selected as a care package recipient, we may seek your permission to use your name and any images you send us, on our website; rest assured, any publicizing of your receipt will be done only with your approval.
