CURE Childhood Cancer is dedicating the month of November to highlight people, organizations and other things for which we are thankful. So many contribute to the wonderful work of our organization, and we are thrilled and honored to share some of them with you.
One group which has been a blessing to CURE is Cup of Joy, a women’s ministry located in Roswell, Georgia. Cup of Joy is generously hosting our holiday party for the second year in a row, doing all the work to provide fun and fellowship for the families we serve. This year, the holiday party will be held at Cup of Joy Founder Dorothy Bowen’s home and promises a wonderful experience for all. The home is transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with Santa, dozens of themed Christmas trees, a life-size gingerbread house, and decorations throughout. Families will be greeted warmly by the many volunteers who help with the event.
In addition to the holiday party, Cup of Joy’s generous members have become dedicated volunteers, helping with “Good Grief” lunches, where CURE provides lunch and an opportunity for nurses and front line caregivers to gather and focus on processing their own grief. Cup of Joy volunteers also help regularly with “Open Arms,” where CURE serves dinner to hospitalized children and their families.
We are so thankful for Cup of Joy and all of the wonderful women who participate. Their devotion to CURE and the families we serve is truly remarkable.
