Ever since I camped out in March (brrr...) with Monte on the Northampton Courthouse lawn a few years back, I thought there had to be a better — or at least a warmer — way to raise money for Cancer Connection, a dynamite local organization that offers support free of charge to individuals living with a cancer diagnosis and their loved ones.
This year, Monte's found it — a fun "Camp-IN" at the historic Hotel Northampton, featuring glamourous Jerry-Lewis style telethon with tuxedos, ball gowns, “celebrity” guests, music, comedy, indoor plumbing and a dance party.
WON'T YOU HELP ME HONOR THE LIFE OF MY SISTER, SUSAN CRAPO, by pledging a little towards my goal of $1500?
Please help me support the hundreds of people in Western Massachusetts and beyond who are living with cancer, along with their loved ones, who benefit from Cancer Connection's one-to-one guidance, support and programs.
Cancer Connection offers a haven where people with cancer, their loved ones and caregivers can learn to cope with the physical and emotional turmoil that is part of a cancer diagnosis and to explore ways to enhance their strength, their hope and their care through support groups, integrative therapies, creative activities and education. All services are offered free of charge.
Your gift, which is tax deductible, will go directly to Cancer Connection to support their important work.
If you want to learn more about Cancer Connection's free programs and services, visit their website: www.cancer-connection.org.
Thank you for your support.
