Since starting our charitable efforts in 2010, we have had the honor of providing financial assistance grants to many families and individuals seeking treatment for cancer and other life threatening illnesses. Grants provide assistance with travel and lodging, medical expenses, medications and other necessities. Grants range from $500 to $2000 and, despite being a small non-profit organization in VT, we have helped families across the country. Here is a list of some of our 2012 & 2013 recent grant recipients and the lives we touched as a result of the generosity of businesses and individuals like you.
