Raising Money for Living Journeys

Living Journeys helps individuals and their families in a desperate time of need and offers some relief from financial stresses and emotional support programs offering tools to manage emotions such as fear, anxiety and confusion that often accompany a cancer diagnosis.  Patients with a calm, healthy mental state improve their quality of life, and may also enhance their chances for positive treatment results.
