“We help with transportation, co-pays with doctors, food, prescriptions and anything cancer patients need for their physical well-being. We’ve already had 98 people since January last year, and 83 of them were out of the Milledgeville, Gray and Dublin area. The needs here are great,” White said. “I thank God we are able to do this with the support of the Milledgeville community. Without the volunteers, donors, sponsors and supporters, we couldn’t do this because it takes so much money. All of the money is dependent on our fundraisers and donations; it all stays here locally in the middle Georgia area.”
For more information about the event, to purchase tickets, or donate funds and supplies, including Boost and gas cards, contact White at 478-731-9390, or visit www.georgiacancersupport.com. Gas cards and other donations can also be mailed to P.O. Box 1938, Milledgeville, Ga. 31059.
