Door Cancer has seen applications for their help rise to a record 23 families for the month of November. The organization helps provide monetary support to families who have a member being treated for cancer. That assistance could be in the form of mortgage or car payments. Unexpected expenses like lodging for families when an individual is receiving treatment in Milwaukee or another large city also add up. Board Member Sue Wehrli says November's applications are far outside the norm.
Door Can's partner for the rest of November, Bliss, is a retail shop in Sturgeon Bay. Five percent of the revenue generated by Christmas ornament sales at Bliss will go to benefit the nonprofit organization.
