FAIRFAX, Va. (November 6, 2015) – Today Life With Cancer accepted a $5,100 donation from the women’s giving circle 100 Women Who Care Northern Virginia during their fourth quarter meeting. Monies donated will be earmarked for Life With Cancer’s transportation program, which ensures that patients can get to and from the care and services they need while going through treatment.
The nomination of Life With Cancer was brought forth by employee and 100 Women Who Care member Kathy Alleman. Both Kathy and Life With Cancer’s Development Director, Amy Richards, were there to accept the donation on behalf of the nonprofit. Amy spoke for a few minutes at the meeting, thanking the members for their generous gift and telling them how this donation truly does impact Life With Cancer, as it encompasses the entire budget of the transportation program. The transportation program is a new service being offered by Life With Cancer due to the growing number of people in the Northern Virginia area who are not able to get to or from their care appointments.
“It’s heartwarming to know that our donation will positively impact so many people in our area who are living with cancer,” stated Michelle Goode, co-founder of 100 Women Who Care Northern Virginia. “Transportation to and from a doctor’s appointment is something that many of us take for granted, so being able to help someone who cannot get there during what is a great time of need in their life is truly humbling.”
The next meeting for 100 Women Who Care Northern Virginia will be on February 4, 2016 at 7:30 pm. If you would like to be part of this simple yet impactful group of women, please email them at info at 100wwcnova dot org.
