Dear friends and supporters of Cancer Hope Network:
As we all know and have experienced, this has been an incredibly difficult year and we are only halfway through it. Who would have ever thought that we would have a worldwide pandemic, be directed to stay at home, use all sorts of precautions, and experience unprecedented shutdowns in every aspect of our lives? It has been a terrible strain on everyone, and our hearts go out to you and your family in hopes that you are well.
But sadly, cancer does not take a break and we still receive calls from patients who are newly diagnosed every day. Fortunately, our staff and volunteers are hard at work from home and using the phones, so our efforts to provide information, hope and to match our clients with volunteers to support them, have continued at full speed.
Recognizing the need for protecting and keeping people healthy at this time, we decided to cancel our Annual Golf Outing typically held in early June. Likewise, we have decided that our Annual Chrysalis Gala held in the fall will also need to be put off until next year.
However, we still very much need funds to run our operations and support the cancer patients who continue to call us every day. So we have decided to conduct a special Cancer Hope Network 2020 Appeal. We are asking you good folks who have been kind enough to support our golf outing or our gala to please consider making a donation again this year. We would be very grateful if you could still contribute what you normally do for this most worthy cause, or whatever you feel comfortable doing. Learn more about sponsor levels or make your donation by visiting – cancerhopenetwork.org/sharehope.
We will be recognizing the organizations and individuals on our website and social media channels in the coming weeks. On behalf of the patients and caregivers we help every year, we are very appreciative.
