“Christmas Without Cancer is thrilled to be back at St. James Place, where it all began two years ago,” mentioned Renee Copeland, vice chairman of Christmas Without Cancer. “Our first Queen of Hearts campaign was a huge success for us, and the winner was someone who had been deeply impacted by cancer. We can’t wait to see what our second round brings, and looking forward to seeing our supporters in-person or via Facebook live for our weekly drawings.”
The grassroots non-profit supplies vacation items, in addition to the fundamental requirements year-round to native households which might be stricken with most cancers. Founded in 2003 by oncology nurse Gerri Neylon, the group has quietly recognized and adopted a number of households all year long and provided them with present playing cards for groceries, medicines, gasoline and different “need” objects.
St. James Place is positioned at 5305 West 95th Street.
