In September of 2012, 7 year old Cole Hexum was diagnosed with Stage 4 Burkitt's Leukemia - one of the fastest spreading, most aggressive cancers. During his battle, Cole drew strength from his friends, family and community rallying behind him, cheering him on every step of the way. In January 2013, Cole was released from the hospital having defeated cancer! As a result of his triumph, Cole set a new goal - to help other cancer victims by giving them the same unwavering support he had gotten. Tracy Hasson came into Cole's life on the soccer field, as his coach, and will continue to support him through Team Cole for many years to come. Learn more at teamcole.org.

For some seniors and those living with a disability, maintaining independence can be difficult.

The Hasson Company is proud to help those in our community who need the extra support. Learn more about Store to Door here.
