Suzanne Major, the founder, CEO, and chairman of the board of Treasured Time, Inc., stopped by the Valley Indy Dec. 6 to talk about her group.
The organization, founded earlier this year, is a non-profit whose mission is to use gifts from the community to grant the wishes of parents with life-threatening illnesses who want to create a lasting memory with their children.
Treasured Time held a fundraiser in Ansonia last month that drew hundreds, and raised about $2,500 for the Lee family, of Oxford.
A press release posted below details how you can still help the Lees.
Treasured Time is in the process of planning a Valentine’s Day fundraiser as well.

PLEASE HELP US HELP THE LEE FAMILY OF OXFORD!!!!
We at Treasured Time know that there are many families battling life threatening illnesses and who are in need of support.
Our mission is to create moments that will last a lifetime for these families. Our focus during this holiday season turns to the Lee Family from Oxford.
Bob and his wife, Cathy, have two young boys, ages 8 and 10. Bob is battling a rare form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma. Synovial Sarcoma is a rare and aggressive soft tissue sarcoma.
We would like to “Give the Gift of Moments” this holiday with a Gift Card Drive that directly supports the Lee family. We are asking that you drop off your gift card donations (grocery, gas, department stores, restaurants, Visa/Mastercard/Amex) at the Starbucks location on Route 67 in Seymour, between now and Sunday, Dec. 22.
Please help us make it possible for the Lee family to make memories through your kindness and generosity.
When you help a family in need, you encourage them to fight harder, dream bigger and look past the illnesses that they are facing.
