During Amber's treatment, she realized her eight hours of work per week was not enough to cover her employer offered health insurance premiums. The Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation paid those premiums to keep her and her family insured while she was unable to work. Amber is alive and in remission.
The Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation lifted Sam's spirits by helping him with mortgage payments, groceries, and health insurance premiums. An eloquent speaker at the Foundation's 2019 Summer Sip and Savor, he was always searching for ways to give back to his community and those who helped him. Sadly, Sam passed away in December of 2019.
