to support cancer research, cancer patients and patients' friends and
families. The group's work
benefited area residents, and as the needs of the community grew, the need
for additional resources and support did as well.

continue this important work with the same spirit of services as the

and their families with compassion and providing them with spiritual,
emotional, financial, and education support.
