The Giving Tree is matching all donations and has raised nearly $6,500 to date, according to a press release.

“We help many patients at The Giving Tree find relief from cannabis during their fight against breast cancer,” Lilach Power, managing director at The Giving Tree, said in the release. “Patients are thankful for the medicine we can provide, and we are thankful for their open mind and for spreading the word about medical cannabis. Raising funds for the American Cancer Society is just one way we can give back to the community and the patients who support us and our mission.”
