Thank you so much for remembering Answers for Angels when you shop at AmazonSmile; for your purchases, Amazon donates a portion of it back to us. In addition, thank you for donating yesterday for the #GivingTuesday movement. Your donations to this campaign raised $115 to add to our end of year campaign goal.
With the funds raised yesterday and a spotlight on our end of year crusade beginning next week, we want to be successful in raising $350. Our goal is to sponsor another patient’s visit to an integrative oncologist and pay for prescribed supplements or shots, or pay a bill in their name and more. This doesn’t seem like much but to a cancer patient, consulting with an integrative oncologist and paying out-of-pocket for their medical care that insurance doesn’t cover, it’s a sizable amount. This amount provides another option to treating cancer and participating in healing their body back to health. Moreover, to a patient who’s single and self-supportive, it’s a relief to the challenge of making ends meet.
Your partnership with us is helpful and important to a cancer patient; it changes people’s lives in astonishing ways. People like Vicki O. from Washington with esophageal cancer that can now eat whole foods, something we take for granted, after following an integrative approach to her treatment. In her own words she “feels healthy, energetic, and happy!” This is an amazing testimony to hear about after 3 months of treatment!
Once more, thank you for your donations and please look for more information in the coming weeks as we begin our Spotlight on Giving Tree campaign.
Thank you and take care!
Answers for Angels hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with family & friends. In our previous email/post, we mentioned how your donations, hosting fundraisers, & volunteering provided us with reaching our goal of offering a few cancer patients grant money. We also shared a testimony of a woman who received a dismal picture from a conventional oncologist. Did you miss that testimony? Our grant program helped pay for her IV shots that aren’t covered by insurance from an integrative oncologist as part of her medical treatment. (Read previous email/post.) Let’s keep the momentum going by supporting us again before this year ends!
You can support us a few different ways. One is by using AmazonSmile when ordering from Amazon during the holidays. At no cost to you, Amazon donates a portion of your purchase price to Answers for Angels. On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), please select Answers for Angels to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping.
Another is to join the #GivingTuesday movement. It’s a global movement dedicated to giving & celebrating the generosity of others to give to Answers for Angels before the year-end tax deduction rush. Any donation at this time is greatly appreciated by the many patients touched by cancer.
Lastly, if you’re unable to donate at this time, maybe you could volunteer on one of the many committees available at our 2016 Jog & Juice 5k run. The committees are Food, Publicity, T-Shirts, & Social Media.
Any way that you contribute will significantly help cancer patients struggling to pay for out-of-pocket expenses to heal their bodies back to health.
