Fundraiser Details

Lois Escobar is a giver. She has been a Family Consultant for over 20 years at Family Caregiver Alliance. In that time she has helped countless struggling families navigate the challenging journey of being a family caregiver.  This journey is often fraught with conflicting emotions, financial concerns and numerous questions without easy answers. Lois has been there for so many caregivers providing support, guidance, and answers when they needed help the most.  

Lois is not only a giver to her caregiving clients and families but she is a giver to FCA.  She is quick to offer a helping hand, share her years of experinence or offer a listening ear to her work colleagues.  Now it is our turn, all of our turns, to give back to Lois.

You can help by making a monetary contribution to Lois and her family either through this website or by mailing/handing your contribution to Michelle Venegas, Director of Programs at FCA (785 Market Street, Ste. 750, San Francisco, CA 94103). Checks can be made out to Lois Escobar and we will pass them along to her. In the memo line please put, "For Lois Escobar's fight against cancer. Your contributions will help cover Lois's medical and out of pocket expenses.

Thanks for your support in taking care of one of our own.
