Miss DHS brings Chemo Care Bags to McLeod
Miss Darlington High School Teen Aubrey Goodwin teamed up with Darlington native Krista Abbott Byrd, Senior Executive Director for Thirty- One Gifts to sell Chemo Care Bags. The bags were purchased in honor or in memory of loved ones to go to local patients and their families in the areas. Each bag was filled with mints, lip balm, a blanket, a pen, a small notebook, hand sanitizer, and lotion to make patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Aubrey’s platform is “Standing Up Against Cancer” for Miss South Carolina Teen competition in June.
On Monday, April 25, Krista and Aubrey delivered 15 bags to the oncology floor at McLeod Hospital in Florence. Some bags were delivered earlier to locals in the Dillon area who are undergoing chemotherapy at this time.
