Blesie Tree Foundation
When someone has cancer, little things can make a big difference. That’s why we created the Blesie Tree Foundation. Inspired by a patient's family, the foundation pays kindness forward to cancer patients. The tree is modeled after the Jesse tree in Isaiah 11:1, an Advent tree that bears much fruit.
We focus on helping patients with everyday needs, from a ride to our clinic to a night where no one has to cook. Our goal is to provide a break from daily stress, so people can devote their energy to getting better. If you're aware of a patient or family who could use help, fill out the form in our clinic or let a staff member know.
Keep the Giving Going
Through the generosity of others, we’ve been able to distribute over $10,000 in gifts to families in our area. The smallest contribution can make someone’s day. To donate:
Send a check made out to the Blesie Tree to our office at 1951 51st St NE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402
Submit a donation to the Blesie Tree PayPal account (you can add a note naming the person you want to honor)
Blesie Tree Walk
Every year, we hold a Blesie Tree Walk to raise funds for the foundation. Check our website in late summer for updates or follow the Blesie Tree on Facebook.
