Neighbors Helping Others
I've been very blessed. I have so many people helping me out all the time, and wanting to help me more and more. My husband has a job where I'm not required to work. My mom was able to quit her job to come out here to live until I kick her to the curb...or my dad demands he can't take it without her anymore...I will never send her away, so my dad might need to do some tugging. I have nanny help, and meal help and friends always dropping things by for me. I have neighbors entertaining my kids and carting them to their different sporting events. I am just surrounded by such caring and generous people.
But many, many, many people are not in my financial situation. When diagnosed with cancer, they have financial burdens, daily chore burdens, childcare issues, etc. It's so sad to me to think about how much harder cancer is when you are financially in a hole, or you don't have the friends and family around to help you.
I briefly mentioned to a wonderful neighbor of mine that if she knew of a charity that helps cancer victims with basic needs to let me know because I really wanted to support them in some way. I want others to know that the gifts you send are so cute and fun and appreciative, but I also encourage you to take the money you'd spend on a gift and donate it to a charity that helps cancer patients.
Well, while I was dragging my feet, my neighbor kicked into full gear. And now many neighbors are involved. And a great event, to raise money for the Angel Foundation is now in full swing! You are all invited. Details are below!
