All donations stay in Lawrence County. We are an all volunteer organization with no paid members. We are not affiliated with the American Cancer Society or Relay for Life.
Some of the other things we do for patients are:
- LCCPS holds a Celebration for Life dinner on a Sunday in October for cancer survivors. Everyone who has had cancer in Lawrence County is invited and asked to bring a caregiver. The dinner is free and often there is music or some type of entertainment. People love to come out and visit with other cancer survivors and catch up on news. Its a good time to meet the people we help and be reminded of why we do what we do.
- LCCPS makes baskets of useful and fun items for various holidays and seasons of the year and take them to the different treatment facilities to give to cancer patients from Lawrence County coming in for chemo or radiation. The little baskets or bags are called "cheer baskets" because they are meant to cheer up the patients and let them know they are being thought of. They contain practical things such packets of Kleenex's, chapsticks, and/or warm socks as well as fun holiday items to make the patient smile.
"This organization has impacted the lives of many patients and families in Lawrence County.

My father was a big supporter of this foundation and what they do. He believed they were doing good, and they helped him with his battle. I recommend the complete support of this institution. ❤
