JDSA Supporting Wellness Place
This fall, JDSA is conducting fundraising efforts to support Wellness Place. Throughout October, attorneys and staff will be taking part in “penny wars” and a silent auction. For November, the team will be gearing toward creativeness in the kitchen, by rolling up their sleeves to prepare food for a Harvest Bake Sale, and compiling a cookbook. All money raised will go directly toward helping breast cancer and prostate cancer patients.
“Throughout the year, JDSA supports meaningful events,” said Jasen McDaniel of JDSA Law. “For Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month we’re again focusing our fundraising efforts to help those in need, but without the means to afford medical care such as imaging, counseling, medications and transportation to and from their appointments.”
Wellness Place provides support groups to patients and caregivers, as well as provide gas and/or gas cards, and transportation to those who need it. They also provide nutritional supplements, groceries / gift cards, pharmaceutical assistants, help with childcare expenses, haircuts and wigs.
