Each year, we set aside a morning to come together as a staff and decorate the office for the holidays. Last Tuesday was our day and we had a lot of fun!
The holiday season also brings a lot of giving here at Cancer Services. Through the Allen County Christmas Bureau, we participated in ‘adopting’ 15 of our client families this Christmas season. Gifts are purchased by local organizations and members of the community for our clients through the Christmas Bureau. The minimum requirement calls for an outfit, one item off of each wish list and a Christmas dinner for the family; but here at Cancer Services, we are able to provide our families with more, including food, cleaning supplies and household items.
It is exciting times as our client families make the trips in to our office, full of holiday spirit, for their Christmas Bureau items. No one can dispute the burden of cancer and its financial impact on families. Many of our clients who are newly diagnosed will struggle to celebrate the holidays this season, but this is just another way all of us here at Cancer Services can help.
