Announcement: January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month

December 29, 2009

CancerCards will donate $1 to GCF during January for every card purchased, so send a friend or loved one in cancer treatment a card by visiting www.cancercardsonline.com

Cancer Cards was founded in 2008 to provide cards especially suited to cancer patients. Cancer Cards is a collaborative effort of writers, photographers and artists, many whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Cancer Cards seeks to positively impact the lives of those living with cancer. Cancer Cards offers a variety of greeting cards for cancer patients including funny cancer cards, spiritual, traditional, as well as cancer cards for children.

GCF thanks CancerCards for their support of cervical cancer education.
