Forget cancer, just for one day

What if a family, burdened by the daily struggles of cancer, could have a day filled with joy and laughter? A day to not worry about treatments. A home free of clutter and repairs. What if this family could forget cancer, just for one day?

The December 5th Fund’s mission is to give an amazing day without worry to a family dealing with cancer. While the family is out enjoying their day, our volunteers are back at their home tackling household chores often ignored when someone in the family has cancer. When the family returns, it’s to a house of hope and love, not a to-do list.

ROUND-UP

It's been a long 19 months since our last volunteer effort. A lot has changed since then, but one thing that hasn't is our desire to help those in need. 24 volunteers came together today to show a family the power of hope and love. From our heart to yours, thank you for helping us make their day. That's a wrap! #D5FisBack #december5thfund ...

The weather is a little crummy today but that didn’t stop us from reviewing another property for a new D5F family. Be on the lookout in the coming weeks to signup for this outdoor-only volunteer opportunity. #bethegood #december5thfund ...

For the first time in over a year we stepped foot onto the property of a family who needs our help. As we walked the property, there was an air of excitement hanging over our heads knowing that something special was about to happen. Be on the lookout in the coming months for this outdoor only #volunteer opportunity. #bethegood #december5thfund ...

It’s pretty amazing what wearing a mask can do. Not only can it stop the transmission of a deadly disease, but it can also prompt a conversation over 1000 miles away because someone was wearing a D5F mask in their hometown of Naples, FL.

This conversation then led to a nomination for someone who is unfortunately about an hour out of our service area. However, since the nomination was so compelling and heartwarming, we’re sending this mom a new iPad to take to treatments and to also communicate a little easier with her out-of-town family. We’re also making sure she has some fresh meals delivered to her doorstep so we set her up with a HomeChef subscription.

Every day we’re given the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. Sometimes it’s obvious while other times it’s not. Either way, try to seize those moments. #bethegood #december5thfund

We just wrapped up our final delivery of the day to the night shift at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Through our December 5th Initiative, 850 meals total were prepared for essential workers by numerous restaurants across the St. Louis and Metro East area. ALL IN ONE DAY.

5 years ago a family was blessed with ONE GREAT DAY. That great day has since inspired a mission and vision that has touched countless lives and will continue to do so because of your unwavering support for us.

From all of us at D5F, your support during these unprecedented times has allowed us to give back in bigger and brighter ways this year. But most importanly, THANK YOU for allowing us to continue to make December 5th THE BEST DAY POSSIBLE. #d5f2020
