Clarice’s Room of Hope Receives Program Award

[MENA] Teena Brown, founder and president of Clarice’s Room of Hope, was pleased to announce that a one-time mini-grant of $2,000 was awarded to the organization, by the Arkansas Cancer Coalition, to provide access to treatment in keeping with the Arkansas Cancer Plan “care efforts.” Through this award, 37 individuals were assisted with transportation needs and received timely treatments at urban clinics. Ms. Brown expressed her sincere appreciation to the Arkansas Cancer Coalition for their generous assistance with their common cause of providing availability to care.

Clarice’s Room of Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In a press release, the mission of the organization was shared, “At Clarice’s Room of Hope, we strive to strengthen mind and body by providing services that boost the self-worth of cancer patients; we do our best to help our clients enjoy their lives to the fullest while they undergo the medical treatments that lead them to recovery! Unlike many foundations, Clarice’s Room of Hope can keep its administrative costs to a fraction of 1% of its total contributions, due to the generous professionals who support its vital cause at no cost, and the countless volunteer hours provided by caring champions of the foundation. Therefore, donations are used for their intended purpose; to help individuals in need.”

Clarice’s Room of Hope Cancer Support Group known as “The Gathering” meets the last Monday of every month in the Janssen Avenue Community Room, 800 Janssen Avenue, at 6:00 P.M. All those affected by cancer, whether it be the cancer survivor, family, caregiver, or friend, are welcome.
