What Are ComfyCozys for Chemo?
These special T-shirts are designed with zippers, pockets and slits to allow access to chest-ports without exposing the child’s body and to allow for storing of the IV lines preventing tangling and pulling on their clothing. They are made in the fun, tie-dye colors that Amanda loved so much.
Amanda’s spirit of life and integrity of self continues to inspire us all! Her dream is coming true. Five hundred children will receive “Comfycozys for Chemo” T-shirts this Christmas. By next Christmas, our goal is that every child in Arizona who needs a port will receive a “Comfycozys for Chemo” T-shirt from Amanda Hope’s Dream.
