I am Lorian Gordon. Having gone through two brain surgeries years ago, I know what it feels like to be in need of Hope and know how comforting it is to receive a small act of kindness. My husband Dave and I buy purses and backpacks for women and backpacks (Bro Bags) for men and fill them with comfort items to give to women and men who are facing cancer, brain surgery, and other life-threatening health issues.
We meet with Oncology Directors at eight Medical Centers in California and Southern Oregon to provide our Comfort Purses and Bro Bags. Our heart and passion is to touch the lives of women and men who are facing one of life's most difficult battles offering Hope and encouragement. Since early 2021, we have been providing quality backpacks for patients to take any comfort items along to chemotherapy in a convenient and easy to manage backpack.
Any donation no matter the size will help make an impact in even one person's life. We sincerely thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
