Fundraisers

Fundraisers are a great way to support the community and ensure help is available today and for tomorrow.

ESCA CancerSupport began as a group of six people who met regularly to discuss, listen, and offer assistance in English to anyone affected by cancer. With the help of the local community, American Church (Emmanuel Church), YWCA, Bookworm Bookstore, Founex Sports Centre, American Community Hall, the group  provided regular discussion and information meetings.

Thanks to the continual generosity of the community, ESCA CancerSupport is still able to provide a variety of services for free to those affected by cancer.
