Pay It Forward Examples
Our hope is that patients who receive help will some day, some how - financially or otherwise - find a way to Pay It Forward by helping someone else in need. Some of the acts of of kindness have been simple and tangible like offering rides, preparing meals, making calls or sending cards to show their support. Although we don't expect our financial assistance to be paid back, both patients and others in the community have found creative ways to "pay it forward" to us. Here are some examples.
For the love of knitting
