Yesterday afternoon, members of the Cobblestone Ladies Golf Association dropped by to present us with the proceeds from their 16th Annual Swing for Cancer. Through their efforts, they were able to raise over $6,000 for our organization. There simply aren’t enough words to express our thanks.


Making an Impact

Aaron and Erica Brown

Fort Wayne resident Aaron Brown and his family made a commitment last year to volunteer for 52 organizations in one year. Not only did they meet that goal, but they’ve decided to keep going and volunteer every week for a second year, as well. Their goal is motivate others to serve and to illustrate how easy it is to do so.

Last week, Aaron volunteered for us, transporting a client to treatment. He wrote about his experience on his blog, Impact 52. Read about his experience and check out his others stories too.

Thank you, Aaron, for making our community a better place!

A Note From a Client’s Mother

We often receive thank you notes from clients and family members. It’s our mission to support those with cancer and their families in our community and receiving these notes tell us we are doing what we say we do. It’s our promise to our clients, and it’s important to us.

Here’s a note we received last week from a client’s mother:

Dear Peter,

My daughter first visited your office in March 2012. After that first visit, you and your agency provided not only many services, but you became her friends. She talked very highly of you and how much your talks helped her. So many times when she was anxious or despaired, you helped her through it. Thank you so much for being there for her. Her phone calls would sometimes drive me crazy, but I would give anything to be able to talk to her again. She would have been very pleased to see how many people came to her funeral.

Thank you again for all you do for everyone.
