We will have meetings for the Power of the Giraffe the first Tuesday of each month at Midwest Members Credit Union in Wood River, IL at 5:00 pm.

We will be sharing ideas of how to help and how to raise funds to help others.  Far too many people battle Cancer and a good number of those are at an advanced stage.  For those in the fight there may not be a down the road, there is only HERE and NOW.  That is where the Power of the Giraffe tries to help.  We hope the Power of the Giraffe will help them RISE above the fight.
