Cancer patient needs peace of mind and body

  • Posted: Monday, January 30, 2012 12:01 a.m., Updated: Friday, March 23, 2012 8:20 p.m.

Samantha, a 45-year-old Dorchester County resident, is undergoing cancer treatment and has had to take medical leave from her part-time job. She does not have medical insurance and needs assistance with medical bills and prescription costs.

In addition, the cancer treatments have been detrimental to her teeth, which now require replacement.

Samantha is struggling to pay her rent, purchase food and keep up with medical expenses. With so little to live on, she fears losing her rental property and is seeking assistance from a Good Cheer Fund agency.

Your donation this holiday season will help ease Samantha's mind as she struggles to heal her body.

Since 1927, contributions to The Post and Courier's Good Cheer Fund have helped the less fortunate in the Lowcountry during the holidays. The six charitable organizations sharing the funds are the Star Gospel Mission, Salvation Army, Lowcountry Food Bank, Carolina Youth Development Center, Association for the Blind and Catholic Charities. Every penny of the money goes to these agencies as there are no administrative costs involved.

Send your tax-deductible contributions to the Good Cheer Fund, c/o The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also may be made in person or online at
