Sprout Love’s purpose is to raise funds to support existing programs at the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor, as well as to develop a Financial Assistance Program that will support people experiencing financial hardship with their basic needs while undergoing cancer treatment. All funds raised through Sprout Love initiatives are divided up equally between the two priority areas. Founded by a dedicated group of family members and friends, Sprout Love was created in memory of the vibrant spirit and energy of Maureen McCurren. Maureen lived with amazing courage and grace during her seven-year battle with breast cancer and was an inspiration to all that knew her. The Sprout Love Financial Assistance Fund is aimed at aiding people in CSC’s service area who are experiencing financial toxicity as a result of cancer and its treatment. The Financial Assistance Fund provides financial assistance to women & men who are having trouble paying bills due to active treatment.
