"When I was diagnosed four years ago, cancer entered the lives of not only my four-year-old, two-year-old and fourteen-month-old kids, but also into the lives of extended friends and family. It could have paralyzed us all...but all of us deserved better. Cancer wasn’t going to steal our hope and joy. This foundation was created to walk alongside our community to help keep, and in some places restore, that hope and joy.
Our practical ways of helping are possible with nights like Concert for a Cure...a great honor to be a part of. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a community to fight this battle with cancer."
-Gretchen Weller, Cancer Warrior
Thousand Dollars Raised
With the generosity of designated donors covering our administrative expenses, every dollar donated goes directly to helping Kittitas County families facing a cancer diagnosis.
Years Serving communities
In our third year, we continue to find new ways to reach families facing cancer through networking in our community. Every person referred to us receives GWF funds. The reception has been outstanding- local donations staying with local families.
To date we’ve reached 36 families facing a cancer diagnosis. Whether it’s a gas card to ease the burden of increased travel for treatment, or a spa treatment, house cleaning, lawn mowing, or tickets to a special event, our goal is to help a family by providing comfort and stress relief.
