Sandhills Cancer Fund

Sandhills Cancer Fund Providing support to Sandhills residents on their journey through cancer treatment The Sandhills Cancer Fund was founded to provide support, financially and morally, to cancer patients and their families who reside in the beautiful remote Sandhills area.
(2)

Our intent is to assist with expenses, support and information to help the patient deal with cancer diagnoses and treatment. From the Sandhills, cancer treatment often requires travel away from home and occasionally staying away from home causing more out of pocket expense. Unfortunately these expenses may dictate the type of treatment the patient may select.

A little slow in getting some posts on here but better late than never,
Big shout out to all the employees at the 1st National Bank in Ainsworth, NE
The employees of the bank donated their own money to a pool and presented the check to the Sandhills Cancer Fund. They were able to present us with $500.00. Our hometown banks are like no other in the world, they truly care for the citizens of our area. We cannot thank you enough for all the support you give to us all through the years.

While the majority of people believe that Breast Cancer is a pink ribbon, a pink Pom Pom, a pen with a pink ribbon, a tote with a pink ribbon, an encap at your local Walmart engaging you to be a “part of the cure.
First, a hard reality, you are not being part of the cure, you’re just throwing your money away to propaganda, uniforms for NFL cheerleaders, and kiosk after kiosk with items from handbags to ziplock bags. It’s all a hoax. They are not trying to fight the cure. Most of their funding goes to advertisement, 6 figure CEO salaries. And when I asked for help, I wasn’t given any, DENIED. Denied by the very people who claimed they would help me in their “advertising”. A pink ribbon isn’t the men and women fighting for their lives with metastatic breast cancer. I cannot comprehend how people can not grasp the simple concept that if you cure stage 4 you cure them all. It’s that simple. You will not have to worry about dying because, there’s a cure if you get to that point.
Breast cancer is often very sexualized. Showing models with fake scars, beautiful bodies and breasts with the strap so perfectly dangling from her shoulder. That’s not what Breast cancer is. It’s CTs, surgeries, amputations, biopsies, MRIs, X-rays, radiation, chemo, IVs, blood tests, fear, worry, hate, anger, confusion, sadness, loneliness, medications, check ups, anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain. It’s so much more than a pink snickers bar because it “supports us!
We do not receive free boob jobs. We have reconstruction. Expanders placed to stretch your skin to fit the implants, complications, tram flap surgeries, sometimes our bodies reject the implants, some choose to go flat, some reconstructions are amazing and look fabulous, some look completely deformed. However, in no way did any of us receive a free boob job. We amputated them and had foreign objects placed in our skin to resembles the breasts we once had. We tattoo our nipples on, we get prosthetic ones, or we go with out. But none of it was free.
Save the Tatas, save 2nd base, no bra day with a bunch of nipples poking out in no way supports those with Breast Cancer.
This is what a lot of cancer really looks like!

Pink isn’t pretty, it’s not a ribbon and it definitely doesn’t help us!

If you want to do something to truly help. Donate to #Metavivor it’s the best foundation who uses the money for what we need, a cure!!! And it doesn’t have to flash around a pink ribbon for propaganda to have spending money!!!! #metaviorawareness #breastcancer #breastcancerawarenessmonth #flat #reality #pinkisntpretty #surgeries #chemo #radiation #survivors #fallensistersandbrothers #mets #metastatic #stage4

Fabulous weather for this year’s event! 9/28/2019
Fun with new friends at the Sandhills Cancer Fund Auction!
Nala our 3-year-old Female Husky has now been missing for one year from the Arnold, NE area since 2/9/18. She is Grey/Black, Blue Eyes and a White face. We believe someone passing through the Nebraska area may have picked her up and without tags or collar was unable to contact us. If you have seen her or know someone who might have her, PLEASE help us bring her home. We are offering a $2000 reward for her safe return. 402-214-4737
