Secret Samaritan Program Spreads Holiday Cheer


By Taren Powell

The Secret Samaritan Charity Program surprised another deserving family last week. Sara Alan-Hamilton, her husband and their three children were awarded $1,500 in gift cards. Alan-Hamilton was given a terminal cancer diagnosis and is currently receiving treatments at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. She was originally given four to six months to live, but is undergoing a trial for a new drug to hopefully extend her life.

This donation was given to the Hamilton family and was made possible by the amazing donors with the Secret Samaritan Charity Program. Alan-Hamilton was grateful to be the recipient of this donation and expressed how helpful it will be not only for her travels, but also during this holiday season with her children.
