CAN was formed almost 15 years ago with a simple goal. Helping local children, families and individuals touched by cancer, by providing financial aid support, education, and informational resources. We have helped more than 3000 families and provided more than 3 million dollars in assistance to families right here in our community.
We can only achieve this goal one person and one step at a time. People like Marion O'Connell, who lost her son, William, a year ago. Every month, Mrs. O'Connell uses a portion of her social security check to bring a gift card into our office for others - just like CAN did for William. And then there is 9 year old Will Quinlan, who this holiday, asked family members to make donations to CAN rather than purchase any gifts for him. One person, and one step at time.
