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.
