Having medical bills to pay can be very stressful, especially if you are fighting a big illness away from family and friends. Knowing everything about your medcial bill can be helpful. It may reduce the cost of your bill.
Help to Endure volunteers come together each year in Spring to plant a beautiful garden. The garden comprises of fruits and vegetables that are used in the daily services in the Temple. The Temple provides an opportunity for famiiles to offer fruits and vegetables from the garden to be offered in individual services on important days such as Birthdays, Anniversaries, Festivals and holy days as per the religious almanac of various faiths. If you wish to offer a flower on your behalf or that of a loved one, please send us a text at (224)218-9029.
Volunteering opportunities are available in many ways. You may wish to devote time to help the needy or you may choose to contribute valuable financial or other resources to help us serve better or you may wish to join in community prayer for those in need.
Which ever way you decide to help, you can contribute and greatly help those in need. Counting our blessings and sharing that with others provides an inner joy that has to be experienced.

Pain and suffering come uninvited, and nobody is immune to the perils of bad times. As we all lead our lives under God’s benevolent gaze, we endure the hard times with the faith that help comes to us in different shapes and forms.
To illustrate a real situation, imagine the challenges of being an International student away from home. On top of it imagine the cruel play of fate and being engulfed by a terminal illness with no major health coverage and under a pile of medical bills! Imagine one in prime youth, instead of being a ray of hope and joy to support retired parents, he himself needs support! Enduring all physical, emotional and financial pain, one continues to fight the disease against all odds. Such are the real stories of these children of God who are trying to survive a day at a time, struck by the terminal disease like Cancer! Fighting cancer is difficult, prolonged, and expensive. It drains out all the resources one has!
When we see such a dire situation, it pains us, makes us feel thankful for what we have and it motivates us to do something. When even the best medical care can’t provide cure in such a situation, what it is we can do? We can Help To EndureSM by sharing our blessings through most generous gift we can give.
Help To EndureSM, raises money to fight cancer, to raise awareness of cancer in the community and help families endure in their fight against cancer; one family at a time. It is a community-developed event run by volunteers. All your contributions go towards activities supporting those fighting cancer in their families.
We know there are many more men, women, and children who will seek our – and your – help. The need is greater than ever. Please send your gift today. Please spread this message.
