ONE RUN benefits Cancer Support Community North Texas, the only Texas affiliate of Cancer Support Community, the largest international non-profit dedicated to providing support, education, hope and community to people affected by cancer. CSCNT offers a wide variety of support and networking groups, educational presentations, workshops and social events for those who have been touched by cancer. Each clubhouse is warm and welcoming and provides a place where men, women and children with cancer, as well as the family and friends that support them, can come together in community.
Gina and James DeLeon and their children have experienced firsthand the impact Cancer Support Community North Texas’ program of support can make in the lives of North Texas families. Says Gina, “In 2010, I was 20 weeks pregnant with my 5th child when I received the diagnosis of breast cancer. I was devastated yet determined to see my five children grow up. The incredible support our family received from CSCNT – support groups, the children’s support program, people to talk to who offered real solutions to the impact of cancer on a family – helped to sustain each of us during those very challenging months. Today, my daughter is a very happy and healthy 3-year old! And my family and I are thriving and delighted to give back to the organization that gave us so much!”
The DeLeon’s is one of many heartwarming stories shared by CSCNT members. Since we opened our welcoming red doors 12 years ago, CSCNT has provided a warm and comfortable place for families facing a cancer diagnosis. And now with clubhouses in Collin, Dallas and Tarrant counties, CSCNT is much more easily accessible to those who need us the most. Your support of ONE RUN keeps those red doors open and our clubhouses bustling with all of the enriching, educational and recreational programs and activities offered to our members – all at no cost.
You can support the run by registering as an individual or team, creating a fundraising page that shares how you or your family or friends have been impacted by cancer, and asking your contacts to sponsor your campaign. It’s such an easy way to spread awareness of CSCNT’s mission and to help raise funds our life-altering program of support – and every dollar raised by ONE RUN stays here in North Texas.
Please help us reach our $215,000 goal and be a part of an event that celebrates families like the DeLeons. We look forward to seeing you September 27!
