“Although we can’t change a cancer diagnosis, we can offer programs and services that directly impact the outcome,” said New Day President and Co-founder Gina Kell Spehn.  “Last year alone, we helped more than 1,400 patients, caregivers and family members stay in their homes, maintain reliable transportation, and have protection from foreclosure, bankruptcy, hunger and utility shut offs. New Day also offers a free professional counseling network to give hope to those coping with the fear, anxiety, and toxic side effects of cancer treatment. We’re grateful to our local first responders and the Red Wings alumni players who will be competing on behalf of our families.”
