We recently completed a website for a local charity by the name of Cancer Angels of San Diego (CASD). At first, we took on the client with intention to bill them for our services. They came with checkbook in hand and wanted a website. They had been burned by other web designers and figured they should just pay a firm like ours to get it done right. As we learned more about their cause, it wasn’t hard for us to offer all our services as a donation to their charity. It is so rewarding to see the website launch and know, in a round about way, it will actually help people keep their home and pay bills.
Here is some information about what CASD is all about. I invite you to visit their website to learn more and consider donating. www.cancerangelsofsandiego.org
Cancer Angels of San Diego was established to address the financial needs of Stage IV cancer patients who are facing severe financial hardship. At Stage IV, the cancer has spread to several places in the body and requires ongoing treatment for life. The good news: people can live for years with Stage IV cancer due to the many advances of research. The bad news: the treatments necessary to keep them alive usually cause severe side effects such as nausea, weakness, terrible aches and pains, disabling fatigue….imagine trying to work in such a miserable physical state. These people can’t. Since they can no longer work, they are unable to pay for the basic necessities of life, including rent or mortgage payments, utilities, food, gas and car repairs, etc. The reality is, this could be you, me, or someone you love.
