@.... Good Deed I Agree. OK in the last 10 years who were (or how many of) the rich and famous of Blythe that misused or took unjust money?

Months back this person I know died of cancer related complications and he received no help from this so call money for travel or food. He was poor and was living with his poor family'

So what all this comes to is this if you are not part of a group of people or well like you get nothing here in Blythe. As you said Blythe is so small all know who is who and is friends with who. As with the police department we know that justice is not dealt equally here so why should every other thing be different.

@ El picas don't be ridiculous! I doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who is who in this small town. Take off your blinders! Quit sticking up for people that take advantage of this special need! I agree to give money to the needy not the greedy. Those that r taking these funds should feel guilty for taking these monies! If you have a good job or your husband use that first then ask for help even if you have to sell your hard earn money toys! It then about survival, not play time!!!!!

@....Cancer Survivor Agrees!. So who are these greedy people? So what do you and others do? You hear that someone has cancer, Then you walk by their house and see if they are well off? You do you visit them and take an inventory of their property and see how many useless toy's they have?

Use this gift of a second chance for better use, other than being vindictive for what happen to you.

I have walked more than a mile in their shoes, what I am saying is this, the money should be given to those who financially need it the most. Cancer is a Horrible thing, but it is not society's fault I have(had) cancer and if I can afford to do it "on my own dime" I know there are others out there who could do the same, but CHOOSE not to. That my dear Drooges (it's a russian word, Google it!) is where most people and I differ. DITTO to GIVE IT TO THE NEEDY, NOT THE GREEDY! You got that right Sister. Inventory taken.... I WIN!

Who cares what they have or don't have? This is a service to ALL cancer patients. Maybe some don't need it as much as others but who are any of you to judge? So they have cancer and you think they should sell off their stuff for gas money or food? That's what the money is for and other things but mostly transportation expenses. It sounds to me like a few of you should be grateful you are not THEM. Good grief. Walk a mile. It's easy to take inventory of someone else's life.

Hey why make them sell all did your Messiah not say with Obamacare no one would go bankrupted. No body had to worry about preconditions or anything with his ACA.

So the best you (Deleted words) can come up with is. Hey lets not help them, lets let them sell everything they worked for. It will be fun to see these people suffer, that's what they get for working hard and buying every thing with their hard earned money.

So until they are on their knees and homeless, maybe you will think about helping them. That's Right punish them for having what you don't have. So who are these rich people that have taken money that they did not deserve?

I bet you people are the type, that when they see someone with a new pair of shoes they would scuff them just to show them.

@ Cancer Survivor agrees- thank you for the compliment, but this is true, they should sell the boat, quads and fancy cars before they r given any money. As I look and know people in this town that have cancer they don't change there lifestyle. Blythe Cancer Center or what ever committees we have out there need to look it to this before we start handing out money and having fundraisers for these people. Make them sell the toys, and show that there in need of help! We r helping people that don't really need help. We give them money they go to the doctors for treatment next thing you know there eating at a fancy restaurant!!! Just sayin!!! keeping it real !!!

@ Good Deed.. I Agree Whole Heartedly, When I had my cancer and was traveling to and from LLUMC weekly for blood work and Chemo, I was offered $$ by what was then known as Blythe Cancer Society, I never took a dime because I knew there were more in need of the money than I. Could it have helped Me and my family, OF COURSE, but I could not have looked at my bald-headed self with any respect knowing that I took money that others may have need more than me. I am not better than anyone else just maybe I have a little more morality than others, after all they have to live with their actions and I have to live with mine. And as I see it I'm still here to tell the tale and I can live with that.

@....Good Deed for people that need it!!. I see that you subscribe to the Obama doctrine. Make them feel bad until they give.

This is one of the few feel good stories that come from kids. But you have ruin it with your get out the guilt trip campaign.

Look at Obama he's rich now part of the 1% that he so much dislikes. I don't see him giving his money away.

I agree this is for a good cause. But there r some people that have cancer that there husband has a good job, have toys, and it don't keep them from spending. We need to give the money to people that r in need that don't have transportation and r just struggling. I hate to say this but some people in our community take advantage of this money. they even have more than people with two jobs that struggle. I'm just sayin..... take a look around before we hand out money look in their garage toys, fancy cars, and r able to work over time but don't!!!!!
