There are many things that have their good sides and bad sides. Cancer isn't one of those - no perks, no silver lining. But that's not what our name is about.
Our nonprofit's founder's best friend, Karen, fought cancer for the second time in six years. Even near the end of her life, she didn't stop smiling when an aunt made her a crocheted hat or a restaurant gave her a free side. She was thankful for all small gifts and random acts of kindness, which she called "Cancer Perks." Cancer didn't take away her joy or hope.
That's why we chose our name, Cancer Perks, when we founded this 501c3 non-profit. We're here to provide the little things in life that are really the big things, like:
- Gas mileage reimbursements for people traveling for radiation treatments
- Resources for people who need to get their lawns mowed, small bills paid or meals provided
- Care packages for people going through chemotherapy or radiation at local cancer centers
We also connect people with other important resources, like support groups. To find out more about what we do, contact us today.
Want to join us in helping people through a dark time? You can organize a fundraiser, sponsor us, donate to us, volunteer your time or donate items for our Cancer Perk Bag care packages. We accept little necessities, like Chapstick, unscented lotion, warm socks, warm hats, fleece blankets, gas cards and gift cards. Call 660-473-9650 now to talk to our team.
