Cancer Can’t

A tribute for Missy Davidson

Many of you know that Healing Cancer One Night At A Time is usually at its’ best when is providing free room nights for patients and families on their cancer journey in the Texas Medical Center. But usual and cancer don’t always mix. 

Earlier this week, we lost a dear friend. Hell, we lost a family member, as Missy Davidson lost her valiant fight with “NonHogkins Lymphoma”. 

Friend…because she took an instant liking to the Friday Harbour team and our mission of Healing. 

Family, because her son, Charlie was a true inspiration as he and his graduate school team helped lead a Rice University Capstone program that infused Friday Harbour with confidence, clarity and renewed commitment to our mission of impacting the families, friends and caregivers of those on their very own cancer journey. 

Missy never called upon the services of Friday Harbour, but she understood the importance of HELP, HEALING and HOME. As Missy navigated the path towards eternal life, she made it clear to her son Charlie, that the mission she had come to know and love through her son, was one that will and should be there for those yet to come into their own mission of healing during the cancer journey. 

Missy’s FIGHT, is our FIGHT. Missy’s HOPE, is our HOPE. Missy’s LEGACY, is our JOURNEY! Healing Cancer One Night At A Time. 

A mother fighting the good fight. 

A son inspiring others through education. 

A nonprofit delivering on its mission. 

All connected.

Why Your Donation Matters

“At MD Anderson Cancer Hospital my doctor had ordered an MRI of my brain. He came in with the results and had told me the chemotherapy I was on was no longer shrinking the mass and recommended 15 treatments of radiation. Which means my husband and I would have to be at MD Anderson every day. My first thought was how were we going to be able to make a 6-hour drive from San Antonio every day for 15 treatments? We both have jobs and driving really wears you out. The doctor had mentioned there was an organization that he would contact to see if they were able to help with places to stay. When I was discharged from the hospital I received a phone call from my doctor stating that Friday Harbour granted me multiple nights of hotel stay so that I could complete my radiation. It was such a weight lifted off my chest knowing that now I didn’t have to worry about finding a place to stay or driving almost 6 hours a day for treatments. In such a difficult time there are wonderful people out there to brighten others days!”
