Wrapping things up…
As our very first Grand Plan campaign comes to a close, we are exceptionally grateful to everyone who has become part of this effort. Together, you have contributed over $9,000 to The SAMFund, every single penny of which will go directly to young adult survivors this fall. By helping to grow our online community, you have also raised awareness of the fact that cancer is not only physically, emotionally and spiritually draining, but that it is financially devastating as well (one of cancer’s dirty little secrets).
Thanks to you, we will be able to provide help with living expenses, medical bills, prescription co-pays, insurance premiums and other expenses for at least 9 (and maybe more!) young adults who are struggling to get back on their feet after cancer treatment. The benefits, though, go far beyond just the financial assistance.
What we know from our past “alums” is that our grants provide them with invaluable breathing room and renewed confidence in their ability to move forward. Instead of feeling the pressure of ongoing expenses and drained savings accounts, they are able to focus their energy on staying healthy and strong.
Thank you for helping to provide these same opportunities for even more young adult survivors this year. We are so grateful and proud to have you as part of The SAMFund community.
P.S. The campaign page will be up until the end of today. If you haven’t had a chance to donate, please consider making a tax-deductible gift of any amount, and help us reach our original goal of $10,000!
