As another year comes to an end, my colleagues and I at are really proud to let you know about our exciting accomplishments during the past 12 months. When I established this non-profit back in 1977 with the goal of helping at least one family dealing with cancer, I never envisioned that we would touch more than 100,000 lives all over the US and beyond. Yet with our modest budget and small staff, just look at what we have done!
