Louisville, Ky., June 7, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Death. Mortality. Cancer. Sorry to bring the facts of life so hard and fast, but it is reality. Unfortunately, all too often, that life is cut short by cancer — a debilitating disease that not only takes away the living, breathing body but ruins the financial stability of entire families.
This has become an uncomfortable truth. The average person can not afford to survive cancer. The battle for life is being waged and there is a daily conflict about money. How is the electric bill going to get paid? Is there money to go to the grocery store? While struggling to deal with the physical obstacles of being deathly ill, the cancer sufferer also has to live with the knowledge that the life-saving care needed is more than likely going to bankrupt their family.
The average person cannot afford to survive cancer. Our mission at Shirley's Way is to be an extension of the household income and help local families throughout the year.
Mike Mulrooney, Founder
There are some small charitable organizations that are having big impacts on individuals' lives by attempting to help families confront these issues. Shirley’s Way is one of those organizations.
A small charity making a big difference in cancer sufferers' lives, Shirley’s Way was started because a family faced all of these same problems and facts of life. Mike Mulrooney is the founder of this small non-profit organization, whose goals are to keep the memory of his mother alive by helping those who can no longer help themselves. He started by printing "Cancer Sucks" T-shirts and selling them online. He took the money he raised selling T-shirts and applied for 501(c)3 status for Shirley’s Way.
His life mission has turned into “People Helping People,” and he believes that folks should always offer a helping hand to someone in need, because it is the right and moral thing to do. Their mission is to be an extension of the household income and help local families throughout the year. People can't fight alone.
Shirley’s Way helps everyone it can, but there are limitations. All the time and effort is for naught if the resources to help do not exist. It relies upon the donations from the public and the purchase of merchandise to make a difference. If you or a member of your family has been through the devastation that cancer takes on a family then you truly know what it takes just to survive. Too many do not survive.
There are many ways to help: By spreading the word by wearing one of our shirts or hats or by making a donation, every little bit helps. A small monthly commitment could be what makes the difference. Visit us here to make a small monthly tax-deductible donation: http://www.shirleysway.com/donate.html. We couldn't do any of the things we do without the generosity, kindness, and support of others.
If you are in need of assistance, then please contact us right away so we can help.
