Provide some needed comfort to cancer patients!

Make your favorite margarita or grab your favorite drink and join YP Impact as we make much-needed port pillows for cancer patients (one of the most requested items). Port pillows are used to by cancer patients to keep car seat belts from rubbing against the ports they receive chemo through.
