Thank you from Flora Bradley

I would like to thank everyone who came to celebrate the renaming of the Cancer Support House.  It seems only fitting to have Betty’s name on the sign.  She worked tirelessly from the start in 1998 to have a place to help clients with whatever their needs were.  I will always remember the sadness in her eyes as she looked over a new client list and she’d say “Oh, my”.  You see, Betty was also a cancer survivor and she knew about the rough journey that lay ahead.

I can’t say enough about the Cherokee Cancer Support Group as a whole, except that they are resilient, hardworking, dependable, faithful people and whatever they do, they do it with pride.  The crafts they made for our recent fund raiser proved that.  We thank God for all the talent he gives.  But mostly for the grace he gives these who must go through the harsh, rough chemo and radiation treatments.

Each community has people with this disease.  Please reach out to them.  Its emotionally and financially draining on an individual.  Not counting the suffering from the side effects of the drugs they must have. 

Thank you to everyone who made a contribution Thursday, September 5 to the Cherokee Cancer Support Group. You truly did a wonderful thing. Your generosity will directly benefit our clients and their families.   You have made someone’s struggle less stressful.
