Cancer Connection is able to offer all its programs and services free of charge because of the generosity of our community. We receive no funding from state or federal governments, the United Way or the American Cancer Society. Instead, we are supported through individual donations, grants from foundations and businesses, and community benefits like the ones listed here.
No more cold weather camping for Monte. At least not this year. THIS year it’s Cancer Connection Summercamp. Still to benefit Cancer Connection. This time, no igloo.
Wednesday & Thursday July 18th and 19th on the Old Courthouse Lawn in Downtown Northampton. Think of it as a Summer Camp for Cancer Connection! Will there be s'mores? Campfire songs? Probably!
Want to camp? Think you can raise money to support Cancer Connection?
Special Thanks to Cooley Dickinson Hospital along with Mutton & Mead for offering a Challenge Hour Match.
Listen to The River during the event to help us make our match!
