Thank You, Heather, for Sharing Your Gifts of Love Experience

Heather learned about CHIX 4 a Cause through a cancer patient support group she joined. Since other organizations told her it would take approximately six months to get back to her about receiving assistance, she was overwhelmingly relieved that CHIX 4 a Cause answered her financial and emotional needs both quickly and in person.

Heather gratefully received gift cards for Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, and her favorite grocery store and gas station. She also had her electric bill paid for the month and received a large supply of toilet paper. Due to her limited ability to work, Heather was unable to cover those expenses on her own. She especially enjoys her prayer shawl, which keeps her warm, and her CHIX 4 a Cause essential oils, which help calm her daily.

Heather was touched that strangers were so willing to help her. She would definitely recommend CHIX 4 a Cause to other cancer patients.

Thank You, Tim, for Sharing Your Gifts of Love Experience

Tim was referred to CHIX 4 a Cause by someone who knows him. He was overwhelmed by the generosity of Jillian Clark, CHIX’s founder & CEO, when she came to deliver the Gifts of Love he requested.

Tim received gift cards from Pick ‘n Save and Kwik Trip, a VISA gift card for a weekend getaway with his wife, CHIX 4 a Cause shirts, can koozie, a wristband that he proudly wears, and other special items.

Tim mentioned he couldn’t believe Jillian goes around a vast area giving Gifts of Love to cancer patients. He marveled at her ability to re-energize and continue filling cancer patients’ needs. Tim said Jillian was a welcome distraction from the stress he was experiencing due to tests and multiple cancer diagnoses. Tim insisted Jillian’s positive attitude was a welcome addition to his therapy, and that there’s nobody better to do what she does than Jillian herself. Tim would recommend CHIX 4 a Cause to cancer patients a thousand times over.

Thank You, Robb, for Sharing Your Gifts of Love Experience

Robb learned about CHIX 4 a Cause from the cancer center where he receives treatment. An employee mentioned the cancer center worked with CHIX before and suggested Robb give us a call.

Robb & his wife were stunned and speechless upon receiving more than they expected from our Gifts of Love program. A Visa gift card allowed the couple to take a much-needed mini-vacation. Gift cards for gas stations helped Robb & his wife drive to and from doctors’ appointments. Also, gift cards for grocery stores helped keep food in the house. In addition, CHIX ensured the couple’s cable TV and heat & electric bills were paid for the month.

Because Robb has been off work since late 2015, and his wife isn’t working at the moment, money has been tight. The couple loved getting the assistance they needed.

Robb said CHIX has the nicest volunteers and our generosity knows no boundaries. He highly recommends the special people and services at CHIX 4 a Cause to anyone battling cancer.

Thank You, Carol, for Sharing Your Gifts of Love Experience

Carol learned about CHIX 4 a Cause through a close friend’s mom who attends Carol’s church. After finding out Carol had cancer, the mom connected her with her friend Jillian Clark, founder/CEO of CHIX 4 a Cause.

Carol mentioned how difficult working an eight-hour day was because of her cancer treatment. Although she felt exhausted attempting to work full-time, her disability payments had run out, and she needed to help pay her family’s bills.

Carol was overwhelmed by the generosity of CHIX 4 a Cause when she received her Gifts of Love. When her husband & she celebrated their 31 st anniversary in October, they used a gift card from the Charcoal Grill to take their two sons out for a celebratory dinner. That weekend, Carol planned to use a gift card for a local movie theater to see a film based on a book she greatly enjoyed. She also appreciated the gift cards for groceries from Pick ‘n Save and gas from Kwik Trip, the essential oils, meditation CDs, candles, and other Gifts of Love.

Carol was so touched by CHIX 4 a Cause that she’s eager to give back to cancer patients when she’s feeling stronger. She said that CHIX went way above and beyond what she expected, and she’s happily spreading the word about how we help cancer patients. Carol also pointed out that the majority of our fundraising goes directly to helping cancer patients, so donors know most of their money is going directly to their local community.

Carol said that because her husband & she were both going through cancer treatment at the same time, they understood what the other was experiencing, and knew how to help each other through the ups and downs. She stated that the bond between them was becoming even stronger due to the storm they were enduring together.
