I need your help with My Eagle Scout Project
My name is John and I am a Life Scout with Troop 511 in North West Austin, Texas. I am working on my Eagle Scout Project. My project is to create a brochure that lists foods and other comfort items that other Head and Neck Cancer Patients have found helpful and comforting during their treatment and recovery. Once I have compiled a list, I will then conduct a drive to collect these items and put these items into Comfort Care Bags and give them, along with the list I have created, to patients who have recently begun or are undergoing treatment.
The inspiration behind my project is that my mother has recently gone through radiation treatments for tonsillar cancer and she found that it took quite a bit of trial and error to find things that she could eat, things that were easy to eat, easy to swallow and did not taste particularly horrible. You have to eat to recover! I’m hoping to make this time a bit easier for future patients by providing some suggestions and some samples in the form of these Comfort Care Bags which will be given to the patients. I will also post the list I am creating to this web site. I hope this will help not only the people receiving the bags, but anyone that views this web site.
How can you help?

Thank you so much for participating in my project.

A brochure with all the information that I have collected will be posted to this forum once I have completed it, hopefully by mid July.
