Loving Arms Cancer Outreach presents “Dancing With the Stars of Cobb County” on November 1, 2014, 7pm at the Lassiter High School concert hall. Watch local heroes strut their stuff on the dance floor at the Loving Arms fundraiser.
Loving Arms Cancer Outreach, Inc is a non-profit organization whose focus is to make the cancer journey a little easier for those afflicted with this cruel disease. Their mission is to provide hope and joy as well as education and support to empower patients and their families throughout the journey. They provide financial assistance, free wigs, hats, scarves, medication assistance, gas/ grocery cards and support groups. The patients pay nothing because of donations from community-minded people. Loving Arms could not assist people “where the rubber meets the road” if not for people and businesses donating their time and money.
They are funded by sponsors, donations and fundraisers. Dancing with the Stars of Cobb County is a fundraiser where local celebrities/heroes in the community will be trained by professional dancers to perform at the event on November 1st. General admission tickets are $10 each and VIP tickets are $20 each. The audience will also cast votes for their favorite Star/dancer which will cost $1 per vote. The Star who raises the most money will receive the People’s Choice Award. The competition will be judged and the Star with the most points will win the Judges Choice Award. All funds raised will go directly to Loving Arms Cancer outreach to assist cancer patients in their time of need.
Loving Arms Cancer Outreach was established in 2011 by two Oncology Nurses. They have a heart for cancer patients and saw a need to assist them “where the rubber meets the road.” After researching to find financial help for patients they soon discovered their options were few. That’s when Loving Arms was created. All services are available at no cost to the client.
