Why You Joined the CFL: Why You Joined the CFL: my mother is a member, and I was looking for a way to be more involved in the community. I am a home health nurse (not currently in the field), and I have seen patients who were actively going through treatments. There were some who were able to continue their lives without worrying about the next meal or the next bill, but others weren't. I'm glad to be a part of an organization that helps those who might struggle while going through treatment.
Fun Fact about yourself: My husband and I are also about to open our first business, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym! I know nothing about BJJ, but it has been fun to be involved in the process :)
The Mission of the Cancer Foundation League (CFL) is to provide services to area cancer patients and also to support the Louisiana Cancer Foundation.
Our Motto is Seldom Seen, but Strongly Felt.
The CFL is affiliated with the Louisiana Cancer Foundation as a fundraising arm to help with outreach and to support the Foundation’s programs and services. We aim to provide direct financial assistance to individuals diagnosed with cancer.
The CFL is committed to improving the financial, emotional, and physical well-being of cancer patients in Northeast Louisiana. We hope to help lighten the financial burden so that a patient and his/her family can concentrate their efforts on fighting the disease of cancer.
