Cancer Sucks, But The Cancer Connection Is Awesome
The Cancer Connection is a wonderful organization located in Northampton, MA. Cancer Connection offers a haven where people living with cancer, their families and their caregivers can all learn how to cope with their changed lives and bodies and emotional turmoil by sharing strategies and resources. There are clearly huge physical aspects to cancer, but it is important to understand that there are also mental and spiritual issues that need to be addressed.
There are plenty of organizations that provide specific medical treatments for people living with cancer. While these organizations are great, Cancer Connection looks well beyond just the physical needs of people living with cancer. Sometimes a deep massage can help someone feel better and reduce the endless stress of cancer treatments. Perhaps a grandmother with cancer wants to make sure she can read books to her grand kids for years to come. Cancer Connection can arrange to have a video made of the grandmother reading children’s books. Really, what could be cooler than that?
Here is the amazing part…do you know what the cost is for all these services? Nothing! That’s right Cancer Connection offers all of its services for free. If cancer has touched your life and you need some help, the last thing you want to be doing is battling with insurance companies, so the Cancer Connection is there for you, free of charge, period. So how does Cancer Connection come up with money to provide all these great resources? By relying on incredible people like Monte and you!
Monte is Camping Out, Because He Hates Cancer More Than Camping
To help raise money for the Cancer Connection, Monte (a popular radio DJ) is camping out right in the middle of town. Monte will start camping out on 3/19/14 and he is not leaving until he has raised over $45,000 for the Cancer Connection! Read all about it –
Monte, from 93.9FM The River and 10 other campers are willing to stay as long as it takes until they break the $45,000 mark.
Here is the funny thing, Monte absolutely hates camping, it is just not his thing. Still, Monte understands that when it comes to fighting the horrible effects of cancer, it is not about what you like and enjoy – it is about pulling out all the stops to help a great organization.
Cancer Sucks, But Helping To Raise Money for Cancer Care is Awesome!
