John Bellavance lived a prosperous, happy life which was cut short on July 19, 2012. He was an incredible soul, and we are proud to be able to carry on his memory by helping people as he would have.
He spoke on numerous occasions about how he was going to help others when, in his words, he "got fixed up.” He questioned how people and their families could be expected to make it through such a scary and stressful health crisis while worrying about the financial burden at the same time. John’s own struggle opened his eyes and ultimately his heart. He wanted to be a part of the solution that would help the less fortunate fight against cancer.
It is in his memory that we started this 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our goal is to provide financial relief to cancer patients, as well as their families, bringing help and hope. We help pay their bills to lighten the load and reduce stress. That way, patients concentrate on what's most important, getting better.
