"Hope For The 'C' Word" is a video which explains radiation, chemotherapy, and other things that a person who just finds out they have cancer will have to deal with. It all sounds so scary, but this video tries to help calm those fears. Parents of children who have had cancer appear on the video to give advice and encouragement.

"Hope For The 'C'Word"-
Produced and Directed by B.J. Rains. Featuring Joe Buck, Steve Savard, and NCAA Basketball Coach Bill Self.

Barb Tippett, Annie's mother, as well as Joan Turner and Ruth Loeffler, her sisters combined on a beautiful song called "On The Wings Of Hope They Fly." Just the fact that they keep singing provides hope to those going through a tough time. This song was first used as a fundraiser, and then given out to families of children with cancer.

"On The Wings Of Hope They Fly"- Music by Steve Haupt, Lyrics by Sally Rains.  Performed by Barbara Tippett, Ruth Loeffler, Joan Turner.
