For the past few weeks, the first thing I’ve done every morning when I get into the office is pull up the Lapper website to see how much money we’ve raised for much-needed programs for people with cancer in our community. Today, our total surpassed $45,000. That will go a long way in supporting families dealing with the health crisis that is cancer.
Those who know me best, know how much this organization means to me. My job here is much more than a job- it feeds my soul because I know that every ounce of energy I put in directly and positively impacts someone in our community who needs help. Our entire team feels that way and we have the great honor of sharing a small part of the cancer journey with our clients; their strength, in the face of fear and great challenges, inspires us. That is why we do what we do.
You too can be inspired by joining us for Lapper 2011. Walk alongside those who have faced a cancer diagnosis and continue to thrive. We cannot do what we do without generous supporters like you. Even if you can’t walk, consider making a donation to the event and know that your treasure will be put to good use. Here’s a glimpse of what your donation provides:
- $50 provides a wig for someone who is going through treatment
- $100 provides one month of nutritional supplement for a client
- $500 provides a year’s worth of prescriptions, food and co-pay assistance to a client
- $850 provides one hospital bed
- $1,000 provides one year of emotional support
