What we do...

We provide JUST-a-BREAK from cancer (from a nice night out, to a couple days "get-a-way") at no charge to patients with advanced stage cancer. With the help of generous local businesses, donors, and volunteers, along with the assistance of local hospitals and cancer centers, JUST-a-BREAK (an official IRS non-profit organization) desires to literally provide "JUST-a-BREAK" from the ongoing emotional worries and financial toll of living with cancer.

How you can help...

We need local businesses and/or donors to help provide overnight accommodations, dinners, event tickets etc. to help us put together JUST-a-BREAK packages for local cancer patients and their caregivers. We also need volunteers to help knock on doors and make contacts and connections with local businesses. We need many to help tell the JUST-a-BREAK story. There are also other ways you can help.

Local store donates 70 Easter Baskets to JUST-a-BREAK!

A big shout out and thank you to Smith's Food & Drug of Ogden, Utah who donated 70 Easter baskets to JUST-a-BREAK. The baskets where delivered to the Oncology Department at McKay Dee Hospital. "It is bringing tears to patients eyes to be able to take them home to their kids! Staff is loving it as much as the patients are!" said Nan Fitzgerald, a licensed clinical social worker in the outpatient oncology department at McKay-Dee Hospital.

$11,000 check for Just-a-Break from local High School!

Another big THANK YOU to the entire Weber High School Student Body - "Quarters & Cans" Program - where many students skip lunches & donate money to the program. They also raised enough between Thanksgiving & Christmas to donate $3,000 to local food banks, plus $6,000 for 14 "needy" families who otherwise would likely not have had a Christmas...and the $11,000 for JUST-a-BREAK!!
