Hi GRACE friends!
As many of you are aware – GRACE has had a long – promised goal of a phase 2 upgrade and rebuild of this wonderful website. When we launched the new design in early 2012, we soon found that many of the things we wanted to do just wouldn’t work with the platform we now have. Part of this is the organization limitations of the WordPress platform, some of it stems from the vast amount of information that we hold in our database.

Our wishlist was gathered early on from many of you, as well as internally from our board members and employees/contractors. We have not forgotten. But as things go – providing the important information that we do for our community, and holding true to the mission of our organization comes first. We continue to provide that information – more every day – free of charge. We want to be able to continue this. Meanwhile – the backbone and structure of the site still needs help.

We are asking for help to get this phase 2 rebuild ball rolling. I have started a crowdfunding site here, to gather funds and to allow you to pass on the request if you can: http://www.gofundme.com/GRACE-Upgrade

Of course – nothing says you can’t donate the usual way, either. We never say no. http://cancergrace.org/donate

Thanks everyone!

Hi again!
We have reached over 30% of our goal so far. And we thank you so much for your generosity! Please continue to spread the word. The better we can make this website, the more information we can continue to bring to you free of charge. The majority of our funding goes to the programs we offer for people dealing with a cancer journey, and it is much much harder to get funding for operational things like building our website. But without the site, there would be no programs — no podcasts for viewing or download, no forums for discussion. We need help with this funding – so we can make this site a better and better place to be. It’s not just new furniture for the living room – it is new beams, studs and rafters. :lol:

Keep on spreading the word! and consider donating today! http://www.gofundme.com/GRACE-Upgrade
