Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. Organization
Announces Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting with Pastor Miles McPherson
January 4, 2011 (San Diego, CA) On Tuesday, January 18, the Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. (RCC) ministry and organization will kick start the New Year with the Grand Opening of their new office space in San Diego, CA. The ribbon cutting and Grand Opening event will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. is not just an organization, but also one of the fastest growing ministries of the Rock Church in San Diego. With over 150,000 new cancer cases in California alone and 15,000 people diagnosed with cancer in San Diego each year, RCC exists to provide compassionate, spiritual, and emotional support, while connecting cancer patients, caregivers and survivors to available resources to help them cope with the affects of cancer. RCCs 200 volunteers help transport patients to their treatments, pray with them, provide financial assistance, tutor, deliver meals, and so much more. They fill in the spiritual and physical gaps that medical insurance does not cover.
RCC is one of 100 ministries at the Rock, that are part of the Do Something World vision founded by Pastor Miles McPherson. McPherson founded the campaign to bring people together and take action to directly transform the lives of the people and City of San Diego, and the world. McPherson will be the official ribbon cutter at the grand opening event, giving his blessing on the office doors and a quick speech about this ministry.
We are so excited with the opportunity to take Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. to a new level and have an office space to expand and grow not only our employees, but daily duties and environment as wellits truly a dream come true states RCC Founder, Tamela Reed. She continues, I feel blessed and honored to be able to take Miles McPhersons Do Something World vision and contribute to it reaching past the church doors and into the community.
The ribbon cutting will start at 4:30 pm and go until 6:30 pm. The afternoon will consist of catering from The Village Crossroad. Two new initiatives will also be announced day of:
- The Gourmet Meals on Wheels Program in partnership with executive chef Neil Shepler
- Finding Faith in the Face of Cancer benefit calendar, featuring cancer survivors of RCC
- The introduction of RCC's founder, Tamela A. Reed's book, Recipes for Healing, which provides cancer patients with hope and reassurance during the battle with cancer
VIPs from around the community, church members, pastoral team, volunteers and media are expected to be in attendance.
