The Charities

Cancer Support Community
Silvana Zucca
Empowered By Knowledge

Our goals are to ensure that adults, children, teens and families impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and supported by community. We strive to help local residents with cancer and their loved ones enhance their health and wellbeing through professionally facilitated support groups, educational workshops, nutrition and exercise programs and mind/body connection classes. We also strive to educate patients, so they learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope.

Samantha's Something
Brent Finch
It's OK To Be Different

“Samantha’s-Something” has a simple, yet pivotal message, especially for local children: “Everybody is Different—and that’s OK.” APS-1 is an ultra-rare, autoimmune, genetic condition that affects only 1 in every 2-3 million people in the country. By most appearances, Samantha is a “normal” child in her third year of AYBA basketball and a strong student at Willow Elementary. What her classmates and teammates notice more, unfortunately, is that she has lost her hair (alopecia areata); she has yellowing teeth; and her stamina is terrible because she has Addison’s Disease as part of APS-1.
