BENEFITING: GATEWAY TO HOPE
ORGANIZER: GATEWAY TO HOPE
EVENT: GO! for a Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2012
On Saturday, April 14, I will lace up my running shoes and run my second 5K! I will run as a member of Team Gateway to Hope as part of the GO! St. Louis Marathon Weekend.
Gateway to Hope provides comprehensive care at no cost to uninsured and underinsured individuals with or at high risk for breast cancer through its partners' donated services. In 2011, we helped 94 patients by providing them access to treatment all at no cost to them.
As more and more women who have no other means to obtain treatment learn about our breast cancer lifeline, the need for our services has grown dramatically. With the downturn in our economy, patients also have an increased need for the necessities of life. Gateway to Hope can provide medical insurance assistance as well as financial support for housing, utilities, transportation, child care and many other expenses when patients cannot afford them.
Your gift will save lives. Patients can focus on healing without the stresss and uncertainty caused by the inability to obtain treatment. They can look to a future filled with hope. It will only take a moment to give a gift; its effects will last a lifetime.
Please help this awesome organization by supporting my efforts!
