Letter: The Community Fund makes a difference

To the Editor, 
We hope that everyone will contribute to The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe as it strives to support organizations that provide medical, educational and social services in its communities. Cancer Support Team is a grateful beneficiary of the fund’s many years of support for our free nursing, counseling and educational services for those affected by cancer at any stage of the disease. As the only Westchester-based home care program licensed by the New York State Department of Health that is solely cancer focused and that offers services free of charge and without regard to insurance coverage, the fund’s support is critical to maintaining and enhancing our services. Whether we are assisting an older adult to manage the side effects of treatment or counseling a child whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer, the Cancer Support Team has counted on the fund to support the help we offer to enhance the quality of life of community residents.
