Grants are a very important part of the overall funding mix that helps us to not only keep our doors open, but to extend our reach to more cancer patients and to improve the depth and quality of our programs for them. In recent years, we have added individual and family counseling hours as a valued part of our services. While this is expensive to provide, we believe it makes a critical difference to our families in their most vulnerable and stressful hours.
We wish to recognize all the funders who believe in the importance of our work in the community.
