Cancer doesn't take a vacation...so neither do we. Trees of Hope WI update on our 2012 Fundraising Gala to fight Leukemia, Lymphoma, Blood Cancers

Christmas in July… (Certainly does not feel like it…..)

Well not exactly, but here at “Trees of Hope, WI” headquarters, we are working hard to secure more sponsors, decorators, collecting raffle and silent auction items, and generally getting the word to as many people as possible to make our 2nd Annual Trees of Hope WI event a Stellar Success!!

We are so grateful to all the Companies and People who have stepped forward to join our mission to help those fighting cancer- adding people to the marrow donor registry – advancing treatments.

Updates - we are proud to report:
