“For me and my family The Walk of Hope is a day dedicated to my brother, to show him he is in our hearts.” said last year’s Individual Top Fundraiser Award recipient, Pam Wright-Coen. “Fundraising is important because The Center offers so much to their participants, it is important to have these resources for people who are going through this hard, emotional time.”
The Cancer Support Center provides support programs and services to help people improve their quality of life during the cancer experience, at no charge. In 2011, The Center had over 8,000 visits from those in need of our resources, over 100 new callers each month, and gave 222 wigs to women who were losing their hair due to chemotherapy. The Center is able to provide these resources to anyone regardless of financial ability because of the generosity of individuals and organizations like you.
