Independence Blue Cross (Independence) teamed up with West Chester-based nonprofit Unite for HER on October 29 to prepare self-care boxes for Independence Blue Cross Medicare Advantage members who have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

Assembled by more than 50 Independence Blue Crew volunteers, the boxes contain products carefully selected to help enhance the health and comfort of those members while they undergo treatment. They also include a greeting card inviting members to call Independence health coaches for additional support and information on ways to register for the Unite for HER Wellness Day Program.
