You can help cancer patients who are struggling financially, pay for their essentials, which will allow them to focus on treatment, healing, and recovery. The second annual Ribbon of Strength campaign benefits Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation’s You’ve Got a Friend and Extra Mile funds. Your gift helps the Foundation award up to $800 in assistance to each patient to pay for necessities, such as:
- Gas cards and car repairs to get to treatment
- Utility bill payments
- Rent and mortgage payments
During our first campaign, we created a 101-foot ribbon. Together, this year, we can create an even larger symbol. Join us by purchasing a section of ribbon that you can customize to memorialize, honor or show support and encouragement during a patient’s health crisis.
This year’s ribbon will be unveiled on March 22 and pictures will be sent to all participants.
The deadline to purchase is March 10, 2022.
