Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To restore hope to those who have lost it due to the pressures of cancer treatment. Giving them a reason to fight cancer and win.

We become the person that is with another person. We become like family to these people so that they are not alone. We pick them up and transport them. We stay with them throughout the day, sharing meals and time together.

We have people in place ready to transport people. They remain positive even on the dark days to help bring back the hope.

In 2020 we saw 14 people cancer free and restored hope to 25. so far this year we have seen 7 people cancer free and 4 more in the next few weeks. we have supported 48 patients so far and seeing more people every day come thru our program
