Become a Member of San Luis Valley Cancer Relief Fund
The SLVCRF acts as a channel, collecting money through fundraisers and memberships, and then passing that on to local cancer patients. Founded in 2006, the organization continues to grow. In 2006 only six stipends were given to patients. In 2017, that number had increased to 87, and in 2016, the Board was able to increase the stipend from $200 to $300. The annual Concert for Cancer Relief is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year. “Cancer touches all of us” said McCartney. “We all know and love someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. It’s not an easy journey and being able to give even this small stipend shows support and love from the community. It’s a joy to assist this organization.”
In 2018 Stipends of $300.00 were sent to 73 patients across the Valley. Additionally, Christmas 'gifts' were given to 61 patients, as of December 4th, 2018.
By becoming a member you ensure your money goes directly to cancer patients in the San Luis Valley. The need is great and as the Fund continues to grow, we are able to help more and more patients.
