We have seen first hand the devastating affects a cancer diagnosis can have on an individual. When those individuals are fighting for their life, we believe they need something to lift their spirits in order to heal not only their body, but their mind. The goal of Strikes Against Cancer is to raise funds to help those affected by cancer by giving them an emotional lift during their fight.

RECIPIENT STORIESKAREN’S STORY
In 2013 Karen was diagnosed with stage 4 breast and liver cancer and is currently still receiving chemotherapy every Monday. Karen hasn't been able to work since her diagnosis and has no income, but is waiting to be approved for social security disability. Early during her fight Karen's car broke down and she was not able to pay to have the car repaired. Due to the car breaking down her two daughters, Toni and Amy, had to take turns taking time off from work to take Karen to her treatments.
Karen was very emotional throughout our discussion and through tears, she told us the gift she received brings her tremendous joy and helps to relieve so much stress. The gift Karen received was $2,000 which she plans to use to pay for car repairs and catch up on past due bills.
Karen told us her diagnosis really knocked her off her feet because she had no symptoms and she never felt sick. The hardest part of her fight is been the the stress all of the phone calls required to coordinate her care and figure out her expenses.
The biggest supporters during her fight were her dog Cheyenne (on her lap in the picture above) and her daughters. She says especially early on during her fight there were many days where she didn't want to get off her couch and Cheyenne sat on her lap to keep her company and also made her get off the couch to take Cheyenne outside. Karen credits having to take Cheyenne outside and getting fresh air with keeping her spirit up during her fight.
