Sharing Hope for a Cure, Inc. is a non-profit organization that works to share hope with those facing cancer and raise funds for cancer research and treatment.
Six days after Courtney Graham’s fourth birthday, her Aunt Lisa lost her life to brain cancer. Through the years she saw the affect her death has had on her two sons and husband. Then on March 12, 2013, her cousin Scott lost his life to lung cancer leaving behind a wife and two beautiful children. These two life-changing events led Courtney to want to make a difference.
Courtney Graham founded Sharing Hope for a Cure, Inc. to bring hope to those facing cancer.
With the help of friends and family, Sharing Hope for a Cure makes dragonflies to pass out to cancer patients and their families. When requested, dragonflies are also mailed free-of-charge to patients outside of the local area. Courtney’s Aunt Lisa loved dragonflies and so they are created in her memory. After Lisa’s death, seeing a dragonfly would remind the family of all the great memories with her. Dragonflies represent hope, power, and living in the moment. That is why they represent this organization’s work so well.
Sharing Hope for a Cure, Inc. works to raise money for cancer research and awareness. Courtney Graham is the captain of the Sharing Hope for a Cure Dade City Relay for Life team. The money raised by the team goes to the American Cancer Society. In partnering with the Miss Florida Organization, Courtney also works to donate money to the Children’s Miracle Network. She currently supports the Simpson Breast Health Center by giving dragonflies to patients diagnosed with cancer or going through cancer-related surgery. An annual Sharing Hope for a Cure Benefit was created several years ago raising money for Relay for Life and the All Children’s Hospital Childhood Cancer Center.
For a $5 donation, you will receive a dragonfly and so will a cancer patient.
For an $18 donation, you can purchase a Sharing Hope for a Cure t-shirt (shipping included).
