This year we wanted to do something special for the holidays. Having gone through the holidays while Cory was in treatment we know first hand how difficult it can be.We decided to reach out to the resource coordinators we work with at the Jimmy Fund Clinic. We asked each of them to provide us with families that would benefit from a little help with the purchase of presents for their children. They quickly got back to us with a list of 5 families and we were able to help them with the purchase of $2,500 worth of gifts for their families. We also helped with the purchase of another $650 for two of our families that we were assisting with other needs. This month has become our biggest month to date for giving. We were able to help 2 families with some of their monthly expenses totaling $2,063.We were able to Make another $5,000 donation to the Evan T. Mandeville DIPG Research Fund at Dana Farber. Along with the holiday gifts this gives us a monthly total of $10,213 None of this would be possible without the generosity and support of all of you. Thank you for helping us help others. Together we can make a difference in the life of a child battling brain cancer.
Our Christmas Tree Jamboree at Attleboro Farms was once again a success raising $700 despite the rain. Thank you to Kris & Deb Kieon owners of the Farm and all of our volunteers, especially Jared who was such a great Santa.
