Voices of Giving: Sparky and Linda Claypoole
Sparky and Linda became involved with the American Cancer Society just last year. When they visited the Musekamp Family Hope Lodge, they knew they had found a ''home.'' Hope Lodge provides free housing for cancer patients and their families traveling to Cincinnati for treatment. In addition, the lodge provides invaluable assistance to those battling cancer - as well as much needed support to their caregivers. There could not be a worthier place where they could honor Sparky's mother, Texie, who died of cancer many years ago. Sparky and Linda have established a significant charitable gift annuity with the ACS which will provide ongoing support for vital patient services and fund life saving research, prevention and early detection programs. All of this will help create a world with less cancer, more birthdays and more hope - both now and far into the future.
