Recently several wonderful  people raised much-needed funds for the Center. We do not receive any sort of government funding – we are dependent on donations to continue providing free services to cancer patients and families.  If you would like to hold a fundraiser for the Center, give us a call!

Nick DiNuzzo held the  Mustache Style Mile in Beaver! The CCAC School of Nursing Class of 2013 held a Spaghetti Dinner to honor their classmate and cancer survivor, Krista Baker! Growing Together, an initiative of Atrium Innvations held a 5K Fun Run/Walk!  Lisa Blaisdell Rizz held “Think Pink” at Jergel’s.
