The Wellspring Group, Inc. and Wellspring Nurse Source are proud to announce our partnership with the Pinky Swear Foundation. Wellspring was looking for a charitable organization to sponsor and Pinky Swear’s mission to help families whose children have cancer spoke to us immediately. We have committed to donate a percentage of revenue for each placement to help support Pinky Swear and participating families through 2016.
In December 2002, nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas, terminally ill with bone cancer, withdrew the entire $6,000 from his savings account and put it in envelopes for the kids on the pediatric oncology floor at the hospital. After giving away all of his money, Mitch made a pinky swear promise with his dad to always help children with cancer and their families after he was gone. Mitch passed away on April 11, 2003, and shortly afterwards, the Pinky Swear Foundation was established by Mitch’s parents, to honor the Pinky Swear Mitch made with his dad. To date, over $10.8 million has been raised to support brave kids battling cancer.
