Hope Connections is the only local non-profit organization, dedicated to helping people with cancer and their loved ones deal with the emotional and physical impact of cancer through professionally facilitated programs of emotional support, education, wellness and hope. In 2013, there were over 8,500 visits to our facility for people to participate in these programs. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, companies and foundations, all programs at Hope Connections are provided free of charge. We all know people who have been touched by cancer and it is through our operations that they have a place to turn for support.
Our 2014 annual Candy Cane 5k will be on November 9, 2014 in Chevy Chase, MD. The proceeds from this event will be used to offer a support group for parents who have cancer that have young kids. Parents now go from being the caregiver to those who need care.
You can learn about the event and register here: Register.
You can directly help support this new support group by making a contribution through my team page, or sign up to be a team member here: Team Anderson Hope. I would really like to see my goal reached with all your help. Please let me know if you post to FB, or other social media so I can personally thank you.
In addition, I am looking for 2 Development interns for the fall semester and 2 for the spring semester. You can review what we do, and more importantly who we help at our website www.hopeconnectionsforcancer.org. Please send me your resume if you are looking for a rewarding experience with an amazing, impactful, and respected organization. If you ever wanted to gain experience with fundraising, non-profit management, and grant writing, this is your chance to do that and to help out a great cause at the same time.
