Giant Thank You to Jack Huang of Douzo Restaurant
A Giant Thank You to Jack Huang, CEO of the Douzo, Basho and ShabuMaru Restaurants in Boston, who sent Kevin Wery and Cindy Laney of Catering to You! to decorate our meeting space for the holidays! It is absolutely beautiful and so welcoming to our support group members.
One of our beloveds, Chris, always told us to go to the Betty J. Borry Retreat, and we did! It was definitely awe-inspiring and wonderful. Thank you to our beloved friend for her encouragement! Her many Betty J. Borry friends made a lovely memorial quilt in her honor from her quilt patch selections. Our beloveds, their families and friends are never forgotten.
Betty J. Borry offers fantastic retreats in the Spring, Winter and Fall for breast cancer patients at any stage. Visit their website at: bjbbreastcancerretreats.org

Hope & Friendship Receives Risa S. Rosengard Grant 2015!
The Risa S. Rosengard Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to helping children and their families cope with the devastating effects of a life-threatening illness and bereavement. The mission of the Foundation is to provide grants to 501(c)(3) organizations for programs that support families going through or recovering from an illness, or grieving the loss of a family member. The vision of The Risa S. Rosengard Foundation is that no child or family member should go through these dark times feeling alone or helpless. Through our support, families have access to the critical services they need during this difficult time. The foundation provides grants to organizations that are offering new, cutting-edge programs and services that help families and children coping with cancer or bereavement in a way that fits their individual situation. Please visit: risarosengardfoundation.org to learn more.
With the receipt of the Risa S. Rosengard Grant, the foundation can now expand the programs offered to children, families and caregivers. Currently underway is the children/family/caregiver chaplaincy and bereavement program which has been well-received by families.
