Denise's First Thanksgiving with Cancer

This Thanksgiving, many of us will gather around the table with friends and family to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. And, we know you'll be saving room for a slice of pie after polishing off the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. Like you, Denise will also be enjoying a Thanksgiving meal, but it will be nothing like her Thanksgiving meals in the past.

Denise was diagnosed with lung cancer only two months ago and was referred to Food & Friends. You can support Denise and thousands of other clients by purchasing a pie or making a donation today!

“There are so many people in the metropolitan area that don’t have the ability to get out and don’t have the funds to purchase the food that will strengthen them,” says Denise. “I think you [Food & Friends] are very helpful, extremely helpful."

Our deliveries provide the critical nutrition Denise needs to battle this horrible illness. Thanks to the funds raised by our Slice of Life pie sale, Denise will be sharing her Thanksgiving meal with relatives at her sister’s house.

Like many others receiving a Thanksgiving meal, she is thankful that she does not have to worry about preparing a meal on her own and that she is able to give back to those who support her every day. “The fact that I’ll be receiving it… I’m a humble person.”

You can ensure that children and adults like Denise, who face a life-challenging illness, continue to have the strength, hope and nourishment they need by supporting Slice of Life. Don't wait, sales close tomorrow!

Thank you for your support,

Carrie Stoltzfus
Director of Program Services

P.S. Every pie purchased provides breakfast, lunch and dinner to a Food & Friends client in need. Your support will make Thanksgiving, and every day, a healthier and brighter day for our clients. Buy a pie or donate today!
