Each year, R&S Cutter Grind donates to the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund, based in Jackson, Mich. The fund provides direct financial assistance to cancer patients and their families. We're proud to help out the families going through cancer diagnosis and treatment. Here is the thank you letter they sent us this year:
"We can't thank you enough for your generosity in support of Mission of Hope Cancer Fund. Whether you purchased a small item or gave a donation, your gift means the world to those who are battling cancer.
Since 1944, the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund has been providing direct monetary assistance to cancer patients throughout Michigan for prescription costs, travel expenses for out-of-town treatment, help in maintaining insurance premiums during treatment, medical bills, medical equipment and supplies, and lodging for out-of-town treatment.
Cancer could affect anyone of us or our families. Once a person is diagnosed with cancer, their world is turned upside down. The world revolves around needles and surgeries, worrying only about what is truly important in life. And what if money has run out to even get them to a cancer clinic for a chemo treatment or given only months to live and needing respite care in their final days of life? This is why Mission of Hope Cancer Fund was started. We cut through the "red tape," to help cancer patients who are desperate for help. There are people desperate for help right now ... and there will be more in the future. Your generosity enables us to continue helping families who come to us for those battling this terrible disease.
Sincerely, Rock Mangus, Cancer Survivor, Founder and Director Mission of Hope Cancer Fund"
