We're MOVING FORWARD! is honored to receive a $1,500 grant from Executive Council Charities. This grant is being used to partially fund this year’s Christmas Dinner and Dance which will allow more funding to be used towards activities in 2018. The Dinner & Dance is the highest attended activity of the year and is open to all age family members. It is our hope that young family members will begin to make connections and friendships with those that are traveling the same journey with their loved one/survivor, helping lead the way for understanding, empathy tolerance and support as they mature.
