When was your life last personally touched by cancer? The devastating reality is that cancer affects each and every family differently, from loss of job to loss of life. The shattering certainty is, if you have been fortunate not to be personally shaken by cancer thus far, or know someone who has, that you have a 50% chance of contracting some form of this horrendous disease, or have a close family member or friend who will, in your lifetime. Cancer remains the 2nd highest cause of death in the United States, second to heart disease. It’s not a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when” will cancer impact you. Cancer patients in rural areas can expect to exceed $50,000 in out of pocket expenses, not covered by insurance, throughout the course of treatment.
There are a variety of different ways in which you can help. Your monetary and in-kind charitable giving will make a direct impact in the lives of local cancer patients and their families. Being charitable can be both emotionally and financially rewarding. Donations can be accepted in a variety of formats, including cash, check, on-line, in-kind auction items, in trust and more. If you have the desire to make a donation of any kind or have a suggestion or offer for a fundraising event, please contact us.
