Patients Kept Cozy This Winter

Date: March 23, 2016

Through a grant from The Johns Hopkins Hospital's Women's Board, a number of Kimmel Cancer Center patients are receiving ChemoCozy jackets this winter. The fleece jackets, stylishly and thoughtfully designed by cancer survivor Greg Hamilton and his wife, provide easy access to peripherally and centrally inserted intravenous lines, implanted devices and pockets for surgical drains. "We are always so excited when we know patients will get a little comfort during their treatments," says Hamilton. Nurses in the infusion center, inpatient floors, and outpatient clinics are distributing the jackets to patients. "We are very grateful to the Women's Board and the Hamilton’s for making these jackets available to our patients," says Sharon Krumm, Kimmel Cancer Center administrator and Director of Nursing.
