You’re Not Ovary Acting – Vol3

In the spirit of the holidays, the JWC Memorial Foundation elves handed out 60 blankets to senior citizens across the Summerton and Manning area – Branco Adult Daycare, Council on Aging Summerton/Manning and homebound Seniors. They were so grateful for their Christmas surprise. It filled us with gratitude to bless them with a warm blanket and put a smile on their faces.

You’re Not Ovary Acting – Vol2

It has been enlightening to engage with the community and arm people with much needed information about this horrible disease – ovarian cancer. The 11th Annual Think Pink – A Salute to Cancer Overcomers event hosted by Annette Smith was unforgettable. To hear stories from cancer survivors, cancer fighters and those families impacted by cancer was inspiring; reminding us to keep fighting the good fight. Thanks for allowing us to partner with you. We had an amazing time and will see you next year!
