Local charity helps families ‘mow down’ cancer
“Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.”
How often have you said that to someone going through an extremely difficult time? How often have you gotten a response other than “Oh, nothing. I’m OK.”?
Brett LaForge, of Cottleville, had an extremely difficult time when his father had cancer and he spent many hours at the hospital or driving his father back and forth to chemotherapy treatments. LaForge’s life revolved around his father. Meanwhile, day-to-day chores did not get done.....
Based in St. Charles Missouri, Mow Down Cancer is a 501C3 charity organization that helps families who have a child going through cancer treatments with their lawncare needs.
“Having lived with someone who had cancer, I know firsthand how families are often overwhelmed with the day-day tasks such as taking care of the lawn, routine maintenance, and other activities” says Brett LaForge, Mow Down Cancer’s founder. “Our mission is to answer the question that is so often asked when a neighbor, colleague, or friend is going through a troubling time, if there is anything I can do for you, let me know. Mow Down Cancer offers families the ability to have their lawn professionally mowed and manicured so they can focus on what matters most, being with their loved one.”
