Want a Break from Politics? Something That is Fun and Helps the Community

Want a break from politics? Want to do something fun that makes a positive impact on the local community and your neighbors? Put this on your calendar!

Tired of political ads, all the commercials, phone calls, mail? I agree it is necessary, but there are many people whose lives hang in the balance everyday. Children, Teens, Adults fighting cancer. For them, it is a full time job to deal with all the treatments. We were one of those families, and we know the struggle. 

Now we have a mission... to support treatments and patients fighting blood cancers. Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma.
