Cherokee Gives A ______. is an association of people focused on uniting the people of Cherokee County for a shared purpose.
Recently, our community learned that, Allison “Allie” Chambers, the wife of Jonathan Chambers (Community Manager of Entrepreneurship for the Cherokee Office of Economic Development) was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. This is not her first battle with cancer. Within hours of being notified, more than 30 business and individuals within Cherokee County gathered to discuss “what can we do?” It was learned shortly thereafter that Allie would be seeking treatment not covered by their insurance plan and the family needs $75,000 for her treatment.
Within hours of the community learning of the $75,000, hundreds of messages flew around the County via text, email, over Facebook, and in person asking, “how can we help?” From there, Cherokee Gives A ______. was formed as an association of people from Cherokee County that share a common purpose. Our immediate mission is to unite the County for the Chambers Family using events taking place throughout Cherokee County on Friday, June 21st, 2019. This event must take place NOW and is being planned quickly.
