A warm thank you to the Bess Spiva Timmons Foundation for providing us with a $2,000 grant. This is our second time being funded through this national foundation. Grant money will be used to support our Gifts of Love program.
Gifts of Love provide one-time financial assistance of up to $1,500 to cover short-term expenses for residents of southeastern Wisconsin battling cancer. Typical Gifts include a rent or mortgage payment, gas cards to get to and from doctor appointments, grocery cards to provide food for the cancer patient and their family, or gift cards to the patient’s favorite restaurant or movie theater.
Although there are programs that fulfill cancer patients’ physical or emotional needs, Chix 4 a Cause is the only nonprofit organization in southeastern Wisconsin that provides financial and emotional assistance to cancer patients. Through our Gifts of Love program, we show that Cancer Has Its eXtras (CHIX). Community members are willing to step up and provide the financial and emotional support that the majority of cancer patients desperately crave.
If you or someone you know is battling cancer, contact Chix 4 a Cause to learn more about our Gifts of Love program. Visit chix4acause.org today.
