Your Donation Counts
Every day we have to tell families in our community that there is nothing we can do to help them. The worst part is that we want to be able to help these families and ten years ago we could have helped them, but do to restricted funding sources we are unable to do anything.
Mary called looking for help to build a ramp for her disabled brother, who was recently diagnosed with stage three pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately, Mary’s brother, Michael, was not over the age of 60 and since he was unable to physically maintain employment, we had to turn him away. The only thing we could do for Mary and Michael was get them in contact with a local medical supply agency where they could rent a roll away wheelchair ramp.
This is just one of the thousands of examples we have for turning people away. We need your help to stop this from happening. Help us insure that we have more stories like Adahir Juan’s.
Adahir Juan is a high school freshman battling cancer and confined to a wheelchair, yet he is an inspiration to his teachers as he works hard on his studies and maintains a positive attitude. Adahir's parents were carrying him up and down the steps into his home every day so he could attend school because the cost of his medical bills made it impossible to afford a wheel chair ramp.
An anonymous donor contacted us and offered to pay for the materials if we could find volunteers to build a ramp for the Juan family. Our partnership with USD 308 HHS where Adahar attends school was the first place we contacted about building the ramp and the students eagerly agreed.
