I am an Oncology Nurse in a local Oncology practice. We feel that we have been given a Fairy God-Parent. This organization has provided baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas for some of our Geneva patients. They have worked to help some of our folks with transportation to their treatments, which for some is a huge problem. Being in a rural setting, we lack many of the services that larger centers in the bigger cities have. This fills a void in service in our community. Thank-you Thrive to Survive for all that you have done and continue to do. Keep up the good work!
i am a cancer suvivor, and i saw alot of need out there as i went through chemo and radiation. this organization will help others like myself that want to give back. myself and a few friends are knitting hats and mittens for patients going through treatment, they are cold sensitive. keep up the good work thrive to survive you are very much needed.
my husband had stage 1 and 3 cancer-needed radical neck dissection, chemo and 32 rounds of chemo from nose to chest in a 360 degree surface-we would be in er on weekends yo control nausea-we DEFINATELY could've used a service like this in this area-it's highly needed. both as a victim and caregiver-even just to have someone to talk to-and for a few things, monetarily.
To take on a challenge, to help those who feel powerless and to allow those in need to lay down their burden and carry it for them is what all great charities should inspire to. The city and community are very lucky to have such selfless advocates to be a source of support and hope against this brutal disease. This year pancreatic cancer ripped my amazing Mother In Law from our lives. At Christmas, she was the Matriach and heart of our family, by Spring we were saying our final good byes in hospice. Knowing that an organization exists in my former hometown gives me a sense of comfort for the family and friends I have remaining there.
Thrive to survive is a wonderful organiztion created by people who have first hand experience with how difficult illness can be for everyone . Many can and will benefit form all that is offered and hopefully will help them feel as they are not alone in there journey. As a member of the health care community , I feel this is a great asset to our community.
Thrive To Survive is dedicated to helping adults in our community who may not get support otherwise. Cancer is an awful disease, and no one should fight it alone. No one should stop themselves from doing something fun because they may not have the extra money. This organization will help adults with cancer and their families to thrive through a devastating time.
This charity is helping so many people who have fallen victim to catastrophic illness. We are hoping to see it grow so that more people can take advantage of this wonderful charity.
As a mom, daughter and friend of countless cancer survivors, I saw a great need in our community to support each other when faced with a difficult diagnosis. Thrive To Survive was inspired by my son and a great friend who fought along side each other. While my son, being a child, received countless opportunities for support, my friend did not, because he was an adult. I want to change that. I want adults with cancer to be able to forget for a while, so that they too can THRIVE!
Thrive to Survive was created by a group who hoped that their loved one's legacy to Thrive would live on. Matt Foe, before losing his battle to cancer last year, wanted nothing more than to help others. This organization will do just that. It will help adults who have been diagnosed with cancer by providing financial and emotional support through volunteers and resources! With this support they will be able to focus on their family, friends and most importantly, their ability to heal and Thrive!
