The foundation raises money to help cancer patients in Alger County pay their hospital bills. This year's event honored Amy Graves, who has been a huge part of the foundation. She passed away this summer due to breast cancer. Co-founder Danielle Beverly says the foundation gives her a chance to give back to friends and neighbors who helped her during her three separate battles with breast cancer in the last ten years. "I just believe that to whom much is given, much is expected and I had a lot of support from the community and it was my opportunity and my family's opportunity to give back, and that's how we started the foundation," said Beverly. The event tends to raise $10,000 to $15,000 every year. Visit BeverlyFamilyFoundation.org to seek their help in paying your cancer-related hospital bills in Alger County.
