A Fundraiser for Sparta Area Cancer Support in Honor of Family Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month. It’s a good time to remember those who are suffering with cancer and their caregivers. This disease has a devastating impact on our loved ones and their caregivers. The physical, emotional, and financial toll is heavy. Through the Sparta Area Cancer Support (SACs) organization, our community has done an outstanding job of coming together to be there for these people at a time when they need a friend more than ever.

Now, you can help make a difference too. In honor of Family Caregivers Month, you are invited to join us in an online fund-raiser for SACS. We are donating 10% of our November royalties made from the online Amazon sales of our new book, “Cocoon of Love for Cancer Caregivers: Get Through the Tough Times” to Sparta Area Cancer Support (SACS).
