I first learned of Singleton Moms through an article in The Republic in 2010. When I read the heartbreaking stories of single parents, struggling with cancer, I thought: "But for the grace of God go I". This could happen to anyone! Yes, I was married, and healthy, but.....so were these parents, at one time. I knew I wanted to help. I started giving monthly to the "Gimme 5 Program", then I decided to do more, and helped clean a Singleton Moms home one day. I was hooked, and devastated at the same time. I will never forget the crayon drawings on the fridge from her children, decrying what cancer was doing to their mom and their lives. I joined the board of Singleton Moms because there are so many people in our state who are struggling to deal with the realities of dealing with cancer while parenting young children, with very little help along the way. We take these parents under our wing as best we can; we give them funds towards their bills, healthy meals for dinner, special attention to the kids, transportation to doctor appointments, access to professional services, the list goes on and on. Yet we always feel we could do more. We never have enough resources to help them all.........I hope someday, we can help all the moms and dads who come to us for help and support.

Singleton Moms is a non profit organization dedicated to supporting single parents with cancer through financial and emotional support plus so much more. I heard about SIngleton Moms in May of this year and knew this was an organization that I wanted to be a part of. This organization is truly inspiring.

I first came across Singleton Moms in 2008. Their mission (helping single parents with cancer) really touched my heart and I knew I had to be involved. Since then I have been working with them pretty much on a daily basis and I am so very proud of the services that Singleton Moms provides. I see first hand how they are helping single moms and dads in our community. It's a one of a kind organization!
