ELYON CANNABIS SUPPORTS LOCAL CANCER PATIENTS THROUGH
NORTH BAY CANCER ALLIANCE
A Portion of Proceeds During Breast Cancer Awareness Month Will Be Donated SANTA ROSA, CA, September 30, 2019— Elyon Cannabis of Santa Rosa will donate at least $5,000 to North Bay Cancer Alliance (NBCA) in a new campaign during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The ultimate amount will depend on the sales of a new limited-edition pink ribbon packaged collection of cannabis products available from Oct. 1-Nov. 1. The beneficiaries will be those fighting for their lives in their battle against cancer.
“Many families, including those on the Elyon staff and mine personally, have been touched by cancer so we are proud to support NBCA and its community effort in providing vital assistance to low-income and marginalized cancer patients,” said Elyon Cannabis Owner & CEO Ron Ferraro. “We’re focused on broadcasting this important message as a service to our cannabis community and the good we can all do to support our neighbors in need.” NBCA is a local nonprofit organization that assists cancer patients in many ways including providing financial support for transportation costs of getting to treatments as well as for groceries, gas, and lodging expenses. “Just as we contribute to Sonoma County by supporting the local cannabis cultivators, we wanted to support a local nonprofit that will have the greatest impact in our community and NBCA does this.”
“This is really cool because what we’re seeing every day in Sonoma County are more and more cancer patients going to dispensaries for products that ease their pain or offset the effects of treatments like chemotherapy,” said Kent Corley, NBCA executive director. “Through their purchases of this limited-edition product, the shoppers will directly impact the lives of cancer patients. That’s an awesome circle of support and we can’t thank Ron and Elyon enough.” The NBCA hopes to establish a long-term relationship with Elyon and local dispensaries because of the relief that cannabis companies can provide those affected by cancer, both in the form of cannabis as a medicine and through financial contributions. NBCA can be a philanthropic avenue for those wanting to contribute and it is also a meaningful source of funding for cancer patients living on the margin of health and income.
