Dear Friends of The Colette A. Mile Foundation (TCAMF),

At TCAMF, we have much to be proud of and to celebrate. 2014 marks the first year in which TCAMF was able to reach out a hand of friendship to five cancer patients and their families to support them through their battle with cancer. TCAMF provided some with financial support, to help cover costs that many insurance plans do not cover. However, TCAMF also provided services such as home cleaning and childcare, during those times where the ill effects of the patient’s cancer treatment made it difficult for them to perform even the simplest of tasks.

Beyond individual family support, TCAMF also made a generous donation to Fox Valley Food For Health to aid in their efforts to deliver nurturing, healthy meals to cancer patients and their families. Also, worthy of mention, is our ongoing efforts to strengthen our support of the Living Well Cancer Resource Center.

Thanks to an outstanding group of volunteers, TCAMF raised over $40,000 at our 3rd annual Fox Valley Marathon fundraiser. Also, TCAMF was honored to be selected as Ferson Creek Elementary school’s service learning project which by the end of the school year, the students, teachers and PTO members raised over $8,700 for TCAMF. We are deeply and forever grateful to all of our volunteers and donors.

Unfortunately, not all families are able to fully enjoy the happiness of their lives because they, or a loved one, are in the midst of a battle for their life or grieving the loss of someone whom they recently lost to cancer. It is for these individuals that we ask you to consider making a donation so TCAMF can further our efforts to provide comfort and support to cancer patients and their families throughout their battle and healing journey. No donation is too large or too small. Also, as an official 501(c)(3) charity, your donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your continued support. We wish you and your families the best health, happiness and prosperity!

The Colette A. Miles Foundation, Board of Directors
