The Hummingbird Project provides a small bag of comfort to those about to start or are currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The bags are full of items to help comfort and provide relief of some of the most common chemotherapy and treatment-related side effects.
Each package includes the following:
Everything in our bags is generously supported by our corporate sponsors and donated by local businesses and communities that wish to brighten the day of someone living with cancer.
Our ultimate goal is to make these packages available across Canada. However due to our current size and available resources, including funding and volunteers we are currently able to provide to Manitoba residents only. As we grow our areas of service will grow as well!
To request a bag, or send one to a loved one, please fill out the form below.
It is currently the mission of The Hummingbird Project to provide these gifts to those living with cancer and who are currently undergoing treatment as the contents are meant to help ease the side effects of cancer-related treatments.
The Hummingbird Project is completely separate from Cancer Care Manitoba and we receive no funding from them. We are a grassroots non-profit organization that is committed to directly impacting those living with cancer.
To keep our costs down, local delivery will be made with the help of our awesome volunteers to the following areas:
For all other areas packages will be mailed via Canada Post. As we continue to grow and reach more people we will be able to establish volunteers in other locations in order to reduce our shipping costs.
