Damn Cancer. It’s R’Achelle Phillips’ response to her own illness and amazing recovery from breast cancer. Over the course of five surgeries, six rounds of chemo, thousands of prayers and her own amazing healing with the help of a solid support system, R’Achelle knew she had to do something to help less fortunate cancer patients in the fight of their lives. Welcome her non-profit, Damn Cancer.
Phillips Home Improvements is partnering with CEO and President Jason Phillips’ wife, R’Achelle, in Damn Cancer’s shoe drive, raising money to help cancer patients pay their medical costs. Gently worn, new and used shoes are requested. The amount raised will be determined by the weight of the shoes, so remember to donate your boots!
All donations will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for-profit social enterprise, and used in developing nations to help impoverished people start businesses. So your shoes are a donation that literally keeps on giving.
You are welcome to participate in Damn Cancer’s shoe drive by delivering your donations to Phillips Home Improvements, 6905 K Avenue Suite 206, Plano, TX 75074. We have a box ready in our front office to receive donations from employees and friends in the community, and we need many more. Your donations not only help cancer patients and business startups in developing nations, but will also reduce the number of shoes that pollute our landfills. So come join Phillips as we Damn Cancer together. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
