About Comfy Cozy for Chemo: Comfy Cozy is a non-profit, support and educational organization founded in 2013 in celebration of Amanda Hope’s life that ended all too soon when she lost her battle against Leukemia. During her four year fight, Amanda Hope dreamed that one day she would design a fun clothing line for kids in the same type of situation that would provide comfort and dignity during treatment. These special T-shirts are designed with zippers, pockets and slits to allow access to chest-ports without exposing the child’s body and to allow for storing of the IV lines preventing tangling and pulling on their clothing. They are made in the fun, tie-dye colors that Amanda loved so much. Amanda’s spirit of life and integrity of self continues to inspire us all! Her dream is coming true. Our goal is that every child in Arizona who needs a port will receive a “Comfycozys for Chemo” T-shirt from Amanda Hope’s Dream. For more information, visit http://www.comfycozys.com/
