BENEFITING: NEW HAMPSHIRE BREAST CANCER COALITION
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2012
"You have cancer" --- 3 chilling words I heard 17 years ago. In that second, your entire world changes. You begin the fight of your life. I was blessed with a loving husband, great kids, supportive family and friends, a flexible and compassionate workplace and a great health plan. They were what allowed me to focus on fighting my cancer.
On October 28th, my friend, Bonnie Venuti-Kenney is hosting the Ghostrunners 5K Road Race/Walk at Mines Falls in Nashua, New Hampshire to support NHBCC’s Support Services Fund to help low-income and uninsured people facing breast cancer pay for critical expenses and services that are not covered by other resources. If you can, please register to run or walk the Ghostrunners 5k site. If you're not a runner or walker or you just can't make the race that day, here is another opportunity for you to help by DONATING right here. You CAN make a difference; you can ease someone's financial burden so they can use their energy to fight their cancer.
Sometimes when you give to charities you get the impression that the $$$ goes into a black hole. Today you have an opportunity to make a donation and know that your $$$ will directly impact the life of a woman fighting breast cancer – helping with their financial hardship. The NHBCC is one of the few all volunteer organizations – they have no office and no paid staff. The NHBCC Support Services Fund is a resource for patients who have exhausted all other options for financial assistance. Your money will most likely help someone to fix their car so they can get to treatment; or help them with a mortgage payment because they couldn’t work that month because of chemo effects; or help someone with a shut off notice from their electric company; or help someone pay for fuel; the list goes on and on. Whether you live in NH or not – you can be assured that your $$$ will directly help makes someone else’s life a little easier.
Any donation will help, so please consider helping someone who is struggling to beat their cancer.
