Comfort Care Bags connect people with breast cancer with the essential tools and support they need during and after treatment.


Baskets of Care distributes 400 bags or more every year. Baskets of Care’s volunteers—many of whom are breast cancer survivors—lovingly pack each bag. We distribute Comfort Care Bags through our partnerships with surgeons, oncologists, and breast care centers across Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. We are the only organization in the region that provides Comfort Care Bags to people with breast cancer.

I was very touched by your bag of wonderful gifts as I began my radiation.It was so comforting to know that people I don’t even know have me in their prayers. A great big thank you to all of you, especially for the colorful and warm shawl. I enjoy it so much and appreciate the hours spent on it.


Sincerely, Jill P.
