    “We are both devoted to helping others and want to bring joy to pediatric oncology patients and put smiles on their faces..."- Jordana Bove '22, Nursing Major, Co-founder of Kindess for Chemo

    Nursing students Jordana Bove and Daniella Cangelosi started Kindness for Chemo this past fall.

    “We were inspired to start this club because we are both interested in working in pediatrics as future nurses,” Bove said. “We are both devoted to helping others and want to bring joy to pediatric oncology patients and put smiles on their faces during their journeys.”

    The club had its first fundraiser last winter, raising a total of $1,137, all of which was donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) Christmas Drive.

    “We were so excited about how much we were able to raise and see how many toys we were able to donate to the children as a result,” Bove said.

    The two are grateful for the other members of the club and everything they have in common.

    “Our favorite part about being in the club is the sense of community we have within the club,” Bove said. “All of the members are so sweet and committed to helping others.”

    Bove and Cangelosi have developed professional relationships with employees at CHOP and said that they have been met with gratitude. Kindness for Chemo and CHOP have even been working closely to plan possible virtual events for the club.

    “The people we have been in touch with at CHOP have been so appreciative of our club and donations,” Bove said.
