We Will Survive Cancer
The members of We Will Survive Cancer (WWSC) raise money all year long to bring holiday cheer to families with cancer who may not otherwise be able to enjoy the gift-giving aspect of the season. This year, nearly 20 of our families provided "wish lists" and WWSC shopped to complete nearly everything on their lists. One by one our families picked up their gifts, amazed at the kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity of this spirited organization. Cancer can be devastating in so many ways: emotionally and financially. This year many of our families, as well as others throughout the country, will experience a brighter holiday season because of WWSC. Thank you!
Toys, books, puzzles and bicycles were delivered to our Family Center by Fairfax County Police Officers Chuck Reinhard and David Pierce. The gifts were a result of the efforts of the many community groups including: Fairfax County Motor Squad, Fairfax City, Herndon, Vienna and Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Departments, Fairfax County and Falls Church Sheriff's Offices, Virginia State Police, Cedar Point, Daniels Run, Fox Mill, Groveton, Holy Spirit, North Springfield, Oakton, Poplar Tree, Wolf Trap and Woodburn Elementary schools. Thank you all for helping to make the holidays a little brighter for patients and families with cancer in our community.
