Harbour’s Around Houston receptions helps heal cancer

It seems fitting that I use the weekend of HurricaneHarvey to post about the need for safe harbour for cancer patients and families seeking housing during their journey.

This very weekend, friends, family, coworkers and visitors to the Houston area will do all they can to survive floods, tornados, home damage and each other. Prayers are at an all time high.

When the rains stop, the bayous subside, home cleanups end and the world tries to find some sense of normalcy, there will still be a need to Heal Cancer.

Welcome to Harbours Around Houston receptions…a new way to help spread the word about our work in “Healing Cancer One Night At A Time”.

The FridayHarbour.org team is recruiting hosts from our list of donors, volunteers, business owners and friends to host 1 of 10 planned “Harbour’s Around Houston” events of your choosing.

Example events could be:
– drinks at your club or clubhouse
– Painting party
– Card or poker game
– Cycling ride
– Brunch at your favorite restaurant
– Breakfast or coffee meet up

That’s right, as the host, you will choose the what, when and how. It can be an event at your pool. A wine tasting social. A reception at your office. Heck, you can even host a movie night on your lawn. We just want you to invite a dozen or more of your friends, coworkers, church members, family or employees.

The FridayHarbour.org team will simply come join you, take 15 mins to share our mission, impact and needs with those assembled and offer a special thank you to you for supporting our message of Healing Cancer One Night At A Time.

 

Keep an an eye out to FridayHarbour.org and social media as we celebrate successful #

HAHs happening across the Houston area.

 


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!”
