Reach Out

Stick your neck out for your fellow man

This site is dedicated to Carol Friedrich Alcorn.  A devoted wife and mother.  A loving sister and daughter.  A special friend to all who know her.  

Cancer may have stolen her hair and her strength, but it has never come close to stealing her beauty, kindness, grace and class.  I am a better person for having known her.  My world changed from the first day I met her.

Making the world a smaller place

The Power of the Giraffe strives to help people and families that are battling cancer.  Our aim is to provide financial assistance and care packages to as many cancer patients in treatment as we can.   Don't let cancer steal people's dreams as well as their health.
