You can help cancer patients who are struggling financially focus on treatment, healing, and recovery by participating in the second annual Ribbon of Strength campaign. The campaign benefits Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation’s You’ve Got a Friend and Extra Mile fund. Your gift helps the Foundation pay up to $800 in assistance to each patient to help with their essentials, 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 and we want to create an even larger symbol this year. Purchase 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.
