The Hope Room
While cancer has not touched my life has it has many people I know, my heart was touched by this simple outreach here in town. The Hope Room. Here cancer patients can come in and get wigs, scarves, hand made colorful turbans and books. It is all donated and free to any cancer patient. This simple act of kindness is inspiring. I can not imagine the strength it takes to come to terms with cancer and the treatment it requires. Let alone trying to finance medical bills and medications. The Hope Room is the perfect name. When everything has a cost, The Hope Room gives you back a little bit of hope that all is not lost. Volunteers give of their time to support and comfort those who are at a loss. What a blessing to families that are going through the trials of cancer.
