"A pick-me-up when cancer brings you down"
The Remissionaries organization was founded by breast cancer survivor Christina Wu. An unexpected side effect of her breast cancer diagnosis was the outpouring of love and support, even from strangers. Christina received a gift basket of incredibly useful items she didn’t know she would need from a breast cancer survivor. The basket comforted her, let her know she was not alone and showed her how much people care. That basket inspired her to create Comfort Crates filled with items that have been beneficial during treatment and the difficult days when leaving the house is not an option. The mission is to help them get through this challenging time with a little comfort, show them that they have support when they need it, and give them hope that remission is possible.
