It was a wonderful morning and the event was a huge success. Because of you, Brian’s Cause was able to raise more than $15,000 for the Brain’s Cause Cancer Treatment Relief Fund! Every person in this community has been personally touched by cancer either through family, friends or co-workers. This fund is in continual need of money because it has been able to assist at this point in time three worthy recipients with their cancer treatment costs needs. The ability of the community to come together and help in these cases is such a wonderful way to give back. It is organizer’s hope to increase the monies in the Brian’s Cause Fund so that they may be able to help more qualified patients.
