Who are we:
We are “friends helping friends, neighbors helping neighbors”, and a community coming together". Our organization was founded by a group of individuals whose mission is to ease the financial & emotional burden and brighten the path of the residents of Tallapoosa County as they navigate through their cancer journey.
What we do:
Simply put, our goal is to allow God to work through us to touch the lives of cancer fighters and survivors in our community.
First, we would like to say THANK YOU for the tremendous support that we have received thus far! We have been blessed with numerous private donations, been the recipient of a few local fundraisers, had the opportunity to speak to several groups within Tallapoosa County, participated in a couple of fall festivals, and had AMAZING support from so many individuals/businesses as we have prepared for our first fundraiser. These first few months have been extremely busy, emotionally challenging, eye opening, and very humbling to say the least. However, because of the generosity of so many of you in our community, we have been able to assist 7 local individuals who are currently battling cancer. We have been able to provide financial assistance for rent, utilities, copays, prescriptions, and other medical bills. This is super exciting for us, and we consider it such an honor to be a part of God's plan for providing a little "REFUGE" to those around us who are currently "fighting the fight."
