Today is a Good Day!Since our area of service has expanded to include Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee, the number of patients we serve has increased dramatically as has the demand for funds. Every individual and every business or organization approached by the Foundation has been extremely generous, and for that we sincerely thank you. The monies received from friends who make gifts in honor or in memory of a loved one is a significant part of the COF budget as are the gifts and grants from businesses, civic clubs, churches, schools, and other foundations. Remember, you don't have to have a special occasion to make a donation to the Cancer Outreach Foundation. Today is a Good Day!
