What is 5777?
May 7, 1977 is the birthday of our founder Melissa Blackford. In the final days of her battle with cancer she asked her parents Bill and Fran Blackford if they were to do anything in her name could they please help the caregivers of those suffering a serious illness or injury.
Most of us know someone who has been a caregiver or perhaps you have been one yourself. As Melissa expressed to her parents, the patient gets the care that they need but the caregiver is often left in ruins physically, emotionally, and financially.
Our goal for the month of May is to raise enough money to help another family on Long Island. We have already helped 8 families, but there are so many more than need our help.
WILL YOU CONSIDER HELPING US?
All donations gladly accepted, and no donation is too small.
