Every year there is a celebration in honor of a man from our community…. Freddie Fest.

During this event, people come together to celebrate the life of a friend as well as to have a good time and give back to the community.

This year the Freddie Fest brought in $750!

Thanks to everyone who participated, we will be able to provide 34 gas vouchers and 10 grocery cards to our clients!
This is such a huge blessing!

Many of us have experienced the many struggles that come with a cancer diagnosis.

From fiances to relationships…. cancer is so painful.

YOU can have a specific part in helping someone in our community who has cancer… YOU can provide a gas or grocery card. YOU can sponsor their counseling journey.

YOU can make a difference in a person’s  journey!

Idaho Gives is a very special day for IDAHO!

“…a day for nonprofits to tell their stories and share their work, which enriches communities throughout our state. It’s a day for Idahoans to come together with one voice of support for our nonprofits, big and small. On May 7, 2015, join us to find your passion, donate to your favorite causes, learn about new nonprofits, and share in the excitement!”

You can schedule your donation TODAY or come see us at any of the locations listed above.
(Click HERE to schedule your donation!)

When you give, YOU will be taking part in helping people through their journey with cancer.
You can buy a Travel Voucher that will take a woman to her radiation or maybe a Grocery Card that will help with the expenses of the “special” foods that are needed.
Maybe you want to sponsor someone as they receive the counseling that they so desperately need in order to cope right now…

No matter how, you will be making a difference!
Thank you so much for taking part in our cause!
