Jayce Lips a boy scout from Troop 1363 in Woodbridge, VA.recently stopped by the Fairfax office to offer some comfort to the Chemo patients by offering them specially made fleece blankets. He is working on this as part of his Eagle project in the Occoquan District. Dr. McCarthy a former scout greeted him there.

This was a special project for Jayce because his older cousin and aunt have had Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He didn’t find out until after he began his project, that his aunt is battling aggressive stage IV Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He shares our patients struggles and understands what family members go through. In the end, Jayce wanted patients to know that they are special and someone out here is cheering them on. He attached a little note in each bag. The main message…never ever give up!
