Meet Our Donors

 

Breakaway Fitness

It takes a community to make a difference. For the third year in a row this community is growing at Breakaway Fitness. Thanks to the enthusiasm of a couple of women this race raised over two thousand dollars which supports our ability to offer programs at no cost, like our fitness classes at Life with Cancer. Thank you Jean Ann Gilliland, Christa Dalakis and the whole Breakaway Fitness community.

Team Mathias Pledges $50K to the Inova Schar Cancer Institute and Life with Cancer.

Mathias Giordano was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, in July 2012 at the age of 11 and battled the disease for 29 months. Even while fighting for his life, he was determined to make a difference for others and spread awareness about pediatric cancer. His courage and spirit inspired everyone he met and was the spark that created Team Mathias. Guided by what was important to Mathias, the mission of Team Mathias is to help support families and research efforts while raising awareness for ALL childhood cancers.

We are so grateful to have the support of one of our neighboring communities.

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!


Santa's Ridepolice-i

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.
