Our SHiNE Mission
SHiNE is a volunteer organization that provides vital services for patients living with cancer.
Cancer has touched all our lives in some way. We may have witnessed the challenges and the struggles that cancer imposed on the life of a loved one, or we may have personally accepted and handled those challenges in our own battle with this disease.
We are fortunate to live in a community where exceptional cancer treatment is practiced every day at the Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital.
Our goal is to provide support to the individual so that their strength, courage and heart will continue to SHiNE.
Through the generosity of our sponsors and caring people like you, SHiNE aims to lessen the burdens of this disease by helping the patient confront the challenges of cancer with dignity, determination and hope.
