Cancer Doesn't Take a Holiday
Happy the Thanksgiving craziness is over? But wait! There's more. To prepare for the winter holidays, there's Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and today: Giving Tuesday. All very well and good but here's the fact: Cancer doesn't take a holiday.
When you have cancer, the best gifts fight and ease the effects of the disease, provide comfort and hope, allow for families to focus on each other rather than the minutia of their "new normal", and provide moments of peace and joy despite uncertainty and fear.
As you prepare for the holidays ahead, we hope you will embrace the giving spirit of the season by finding a place in your heart for the families who rely on our critical support services, and making a donation to the Ellie Fund (here) now or in the future.
Because cancer doesn't take a holiday, your gift is equally important to us on a Thursday in March as it is this December. And any time you make a donation in honor of a loved one or friend, it's our pleasure to send a special card that gratefully acknowledges your gift, and explains how your donation directly benefits a local family in need.
