NCF Journey of Hope:
Marise Barsalou learned her mother was given
10 days to live.
She will never forget the night her mother was suddenly taken to the hospital - fearing it was something bad. Later, she learned her mother was diagnosed with cancer.
It taught me a lesson that I will never forget - Love to the last minute of your life, because you never know when that last minute will come.
Today, with her mother in remission, she gratefully canvasses with her schoolmates because she believes donations provide families like hers hope for the future.
Thanks to the students of Collège Notre-Dame, NCF has recieved over $600,000 in community donations since 1987 in support of Children’s Programs and Research. We salute their leadership and continued dedication.
