Statistics show that 1 out of 2 people are affected by cancer, whether it is through a personal diagnosis or being a caregiver to a loved one or friend who is battling the disease. The East Texas Cancer Alliance of Hope and Georgia-Pacific are hoping to ease the financial burdens that many East Texas families are facing following a cancer diagnosis. Earlier this week Georgia-Pacific presented the East Texas Cancer Alliance of Hope a check for $2170 to help needy patients with food, prescription medications, fuel, utility bills, and more. The donation was a result of Diboll Regional Office employees contributing $20 to wear jeans while at work during the months of March and April.
Presenting the donation and celebrating the ribbon cutting of the grand opening of the East Texas Cancer Alliance of Hope are (Pictured l to r) Georgia-Pacific employees Jennifer Holder, Yana Ogletree; East Texas Cancer Alliance of Hope Founder and CEO Ashley Berry; Michelle Palmore and Michelle Ferguson.
