ABQ the Magazine, March 2014We’re in the March, 2014 issue of Albuquerque the Magazine! Some of the guests at our Growing Hope for 30 Years event are featured in the “tapas: faces & places” section of the magazine. Click on the picture to the right for a larger version – maybe you’ll see someone you know!

We met for Wine, Whine & Cheese on Sunday, December 8 to celebrate the contributions of Mary Ellen Kurucz, Program Director of People Living Through Cancer. Thank you to everyone who attended and ESPECIALLY to Mary Ellen for her hard work and dedication to our organization.

On October, 30, 2013, we held our Growing Hope for 30 Years event and raised over $32,000 to support our free programs. You can help our Tree of Hope continue to grow by honoring or memorializing a loved one. Please click here to make a donation.

In October, 2013, we updated our online donation and payment capabilities through a partnership with L&S Marketing, an Albuquerque marketing, public relations and web services company that has a long history of supporting local non-profits.

In September, 2013, we began a partnership with Give HOPE a Ride to allow vehicle donations. This local program provides a much higher return to us than any other alternative.

Please check back soon for more updates and thank you for your support of People Living Through Cancer.
