Somewhere along the line, each of our lives is touched by cancer. Whether you know someone with cancer, or you’ve fought it yourself, this disease has become a fact of life. As much of a downer as that thought is, there are good things that have come from it. Thankfully, there are many organisations that serve to help people manage the impact of cancer, and provide those who are fighting it with the kinds of experiences and help they need.
The Dempsey Center is one such organization. Dedicated to providing a variety of diverse, personalised, and high-quality services at no cost to the client, the Dempsey Center is the latest focus for Omaze, and what’s up for bid this time? A 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera.
