The successful initiative raised close to $20K allowing The SISI to be positioned to assist many more cancer patients this year. The goal for 2014 is to assist 1000 patients. She stated, “Cancer affects each one of us because we all know someone that is affected by it; we are in this Journey together. It is an arduous process for those going through the journey. It is our duty to assist those that we can with $25 Gas Cards to provide a bit of ease because it hits the pocketbooks hard. They need and deserve our help!” Please visit www.thesisi.org to learn more about this worthy cause.
