Cancer diagnosis carries with it the weght of worry and confusion, choices and decisions, disruption and delays. It is also very costly. Almost 40% of patients deplete their life savings as a result of the diagnosis. Your support is vital to the patients and in many cases it's the only way they can afford the necessary medications.
Most recently, we used your donations to help Gulnara from Tajikistan. Since 2012 she has been battling breast cancer. Letrozole is a medicine often prescribed to keep women like her from recurrence, but it is not available in Tajikistan. Her family has to purchase it abroad and pay for it out of their own pocket. Without our help, they would not have been able to afford it.
And it's small donations that enable us to help patients like Gulnara. Donations of up to $25 make up 65% of total donations we receive, while those of $26-$50 comprise additional 20%. Small donations are our foundation - without them we would crumble and fall. We want you to know that we are grateful for donations of any size. What matters to us is your support and dedication to helping cancer patients.
If you would like to take advantage of a bonus to your donation, Little by Little Campaign week returns on Monday, August 12th! This campaign celebrates the mighty power of small donations. A 60% match on any donation of $50 or less will be given for as long as the bonus funds last. In addition, bonus prizes for most money raised and most unique donors will be available.
That's not all - all new recurring donors will get an additional 100% match on their initial donation as long as it remains active for a minimum of four payments.
Thanks again and hope you join us the week of August 12th!
