I remember when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was in middle school. It was a scary and hard time for my family. That's why in honor of my mom's fight and "win" with breast cancer I am choosing to help raise money for Horizons Community Solutions. This organization, formerly the Cancer Coalition, helps to pay for cancer screenings for those who can't afford it. I can't imagine having cancer and not having access to quality medical care.
Best part...100% of the funds stay local! Horizons serves 32 counties in SWGA. Just think how many lives are being saved by this great organization every year. Please help me reach my goal of $500 by Tuesday, April 30th as Horizons celebrates a Day for Hope.
During the organizations first annual Horizons “Day for Hope,” a day that leverages the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage generosity and philanthropic participation, every dollar raised will be used locally in South Georgia communities. For example: A one-time gift of $1,200 will provide mammograms for ten women. In addition to medical resources, Horizons also offers the community ongoing education about conditions such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, tobacco control and more.
Horizons has linked together with other organizations and individuals, making it possible to include all community members in Day for Hope. A day-long challenge campaign is scheduled to air on WALB that will include testimonials from patients, physicians, and community leaders.
The Day for Hope will also include a ribbon cutting and open house at the new office located at 2332 Lake Park Drive. Join us to raise Hope for southwest Georgia.
