The Little Things For Cancer (aka The Little Things) has one mission… to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers. The “little things” they help with are actually “big things” to people dealing with cancer. They will help out in any way they can… meeting whatever needs a patient and their family has. The Little Things has funded services such as childcare/babysitting, meals, house cleaning, prescription payment financial aid, complementary therapies such as massage and acupuncture, transportation, entertainment and much, much more. And they help fund services for not only cancer patients, but for caregivers too!
Although they hope to extend their service area in the future, currently, The Little Things serve patients & caregivers through Howard County General and the University of Maryland Medical Center. All services are arranged through the social workers and staff at these two hospitals. So if you know of anyone receiving treatment at either of these two medical centers in Howard County, Maryland, tell them about The Little Things.
BTW, if you’re a golfer, check out The Little Things for Cancer Golf Classic to be held @ Waverly Woods Golf Club in Marriottsville, MD on October 11, 2011. To find out more information and register to play, call (443) 228-8584 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be there…. I don’t play golf but I’m hoping they’ll let me drive the beverage cart!
