The Cocktails & Chemo Foundation started as a blog, a place where Amanda and Joe Clark could share the hardships that come along with a cancer diagnosis. Joe wrote from the perspective of the patient and Amanda as the caregiver.
When Joe died in 2014, Amanda knew she had to take their words further and be a voice for caregivers.
Now the foundation is on a mission to care for the often forgotten caregivers. It's a lonely, thankless job and helping caregivers feel supported and find others who "get it" is at the center of everything at The Cocktails & Chemo Foundation.
Through care cards, social support groups and grants, Cocktails & Chemo is reaching out to caregivers, creating a soft place for them to land on the hard days.
