CLEARFIELD — Among the grants recently awarded by the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation was a $1,000 donation to Clear-field County Cancer Sup-port Inc. of Curwensville.

“The support offered by Clearfield County Cancer Support is important,” said CCCF Executive Director Mark McCracken.

“This is an idea brought to life by Sonya and Mike Greene because they lived through the process of battling cancer and saw, firsthand, what was missing in the community support system.

“This is the type of program the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation looks to support with our grant program because it assists people throughout Clearfield County in a time of great need.”

Founders Sonya and Mike Greene said, “We appreciate the $1,000 grant from the Clearfield County Charitable Foundation.We started Clearfield County Cancer Support Inc. as a way to help and support individuals going through cancer treatment.

“There are other organizations dedicated to research and finding more effective treatment for the future, but our mission is helping individuals now, to get through the daily struggles they face while undergoing cancer treatment.”

The CCCF awards grants annually to nonprofit organizations to benefit the residents of Clearfield County.
