Newnan, Ga. (March 16, 2017) – Piedmont Newnan Hospital was recently awarded a $25,000 grant from Can’t Never Could, Inc., a non-profit corporation dedicated to helping individuals and groups who are facing adversity and personal battles.
The grant will benefit massage therapy services offered by the Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness Center at Piedmont Newnan. The center provides comprehensive, complimentary cancer services and programs to anyone affected by cancer at any phase in his or her journey. The grant from Can’t Never Could, Inc. allows Piedmont Newnan to hire a second massage therapist, doubling the number of appointment times.
“Massage therapy is my time when I can just shut out the world and is one thing, throughout my battle with cancer, that I look forward to,” said Rob Estes, Co-founder of Can’t Never Could. “When Christi and I learned they were at capacity, we knew this was a way we could give back and make a big impact.”
Estes has been battling brain cancer for almost three years and says his tumor, which he calls his goliath, has brought his family closer together and given him the chance to have a second outlook on life helping others in need. Shortly after his diagnosis, Estes and his wife, Christi, started a non-profit foundation called Can’t Never Could Inc. dedicated to helping people who are facing adversity and personal battles. Through their annual fundraising dinner and other generous donations, the organization has helped over 60 people with recipients including cancer patients and their families, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, children with learning differences, and those facing the adversity of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
