BENEFITING: LIFE IS GOOD NO MATTER WHAT
Nearly 2 million cases of cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year. In the midst of these grim statistics, one organization is trying to give adults with advanced cancer a break and escape from their battle and diagnosis through a cherished experience. Life Is Good No Matter What was established after the founder Troy Haslinger’s sister lost her battle with cancer in 2011. Named after her motto in life, the organization grants special wishes of local Ohio adults with life-limiting cancer. In the past, Life Is Good has taken patients on trips of their choosing, letting them forget about cancer and concentrate on living life to the fullest. For example, they sent Jeff and his wife Karen to Grand Canyon to the spot where Jeff had proposed to her 25 years ago, allowing the couple to share a moment of joy in the midst of Jeff’s battle with cancer. To continue providing life-changing experiences for people battling cancer, Life Is Good No Matter What depends on donations and the goodwill of the local people in northern Ohio.
