Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope hosts day at zoo


The Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope hosted a Family Fun Day at the Palm Beach Zoo on June 30 for nearly 50 local families that have been touched by cancer.

Families enjoyed a lunch buffet, picnic in the park, carousel rides, close encounters with the animals and amazing raffle prizes including TVs, laptops, gift cards and iPads.

Among the CAHH clients in attendance was Jessica, who is battling breast cancer. This brave single mother of two girls and a U.S. Army Veteran was recently given the same diagnosis that took her mother’s life a few years ago. Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope has helped pay her monthly bills as she goes through cancer treatment and caring for her family.

The event was underwritten by Janet and Mark Levy and the admission fees were underwritten by the Palm Beach Zoo.

“We were so honored to be able to provide a special day of fun for these families that have been struggling because of a cancer diagnosis,” said CAHH board member Janet Levy. “This special afternoon brought many smiles as they enjoyed a day at the zoo!”
