Harbours Around Houston

What is Harbours Around Houston?

Harbours around Houston is an intimate gathering of friends, family, and co-workers with the objective of connecting people to Friday Harbour’s mission of Healing Cancer One Night at a Time.  The event is fully customized to the host(s) with the intention of meeting them and their peers where they typically congregate (i.e. their homes, favorite restaurants, home golf course, etc.).  By meeting people “where they are”, Friday Harbour hopes to make connections with folks that fall into three vital categories:

  1. Do’ers: Those that wish to donate their time in a volunteer capacity.

  2. Donors: Those that wish to make a monetary donation and/or become a Beacon Donor.

  3. Door Openers: Those that know people that need to connect with Friday Harbour or that Friday Harbour needs to be connected to.

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!”
