When people face a medical crisis, their family, friends, and neighbors want to help. Too often, the people who care don’t know what to do and the people in crisis don’t know what to ask for. LetsGiveBack.org, addresses this issue and solves this problem for the recipient and the giver. This organization has researched what families need when facing a medical crisis and has put together GiveBackPacks containing items a person may need in the hospital.
