With the community’s help, we hold several fundraising events throughout the year to help local cancer patients with medical costs and some household expenses. Mixing fun with community service, Cancer Ties has truly demonstrated that there truly is Only One Albany.
WHY WE DO IT
We began as a group of seven friends who wanted to lend a hand to our friend, Allison Salter, who was battling cancer. Our 2007 event was such a tremendous success that -– with Allison’s help -– we decided to continue to operate Cancer Ties as an ongoing effort.
HOW WE DO IT
We do it with your help. Your participation supports local people -– our friends and neighbors -– whose lives have been turned upside down by cancer. There are ongoing opportunities throughout to donate online or offline, attend fundraisers — and have fun!
