GivingTuesday on December 1st - You can make a difference!

#GivingTuesday is a global movement and you can be a part of it. When you participate, your donations go 5% further! GiveGab is walking the walk, they are giving up 100% of their platform fees on December 1st.

Please consider donating to the Cancer Resource Center by clicking here...because no one should face cancer alone.

2 ways to donate that are of no additional cost to you:

On Sunday Nov. 29th, Goodshop will be offering double donations to CRC and exclusive deals from over 200 merchants. AmazonSmile is another great way to raise money for CRC with no additional cost to yourself. Just do your usual shopping at either of these sites, and they will donate a portion of the proceeds to us!

Fitness During and After Cancer Treatment: An IC Research Project

Ithaca College Clinical faculty member and physical therapist, Jill Mayer, along with 7 physical therapy graduate students are conducting a research project at Ithaca College. They are looking to identify individuals who have a diagnosis of cancer (any type) or are newly in remission, and who are interested in receiving an individualized home exercise program. Participants must be currently going through active cancer treatment or are less than 90 days post their final treatment. If this describes you, would you be interested?

Lots of Ways to Give to CRCFL

It's easy to donate to us online through: GiveGab, Paypal, Amazon Smile,
Goodshop, Goodsearch
or Ebay Giving Works.
We're proud that all donations to CRC remain here in our community.

Do you have a life celebration ahead but feel like you already have
enough "stuff"? Would you rather help out a good cause?

Why not suggest that people make a contribution to the Cancer Resource Center in honor of your birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation, or other milestone? You can also ask friends to donate in memory of a loved one in your honor.

We'll thank them & let you know that they donated in your honor. We're also happy to provide you with brochures, etc. to send out with the invitations to your event.

And they'll even get a tax deduction. Everyone wins!
