Our community has provided so much love to The Caffeinery. For this reason, we wanted to create a program that would give back that same love (and money) to organizations and causes near and dear to our hearts. That's why we created Coffee For A Cause. For every 12oz bag of coffee purchased, $5.00 will be donated back to a cause of our choosing. We hope you enjoy this delicious blend and find joy in supporting a great cause. Cheers!
If you live in our community you likely know the story of Christian Daugherty. In the fall of 2017, it was discovered Christian had a baseball-sized tumor growing on his brainstem. Not only was this tumor cancerous, but after many tests, it was found to be a rare form called Pleomorphic Xanthroastrocytoma. This was caused by a gene-fusion never before seen by doctors. This allowed the tumor to adapt to medication and continue to grow. After several surgeries and removing the left half of Christian's brain he returned home. At this time, he was challenged to learn how to walk and talk again. This battle continued for nearly two years. Those two years were full of tests, therapy, love, and a celebration of life.
Christian defeated cancer surrounded by his family in the summer of 2019. But, his spirit lives on through research and helping others. His cancer cells are the first of their kind to be reproduced in a lab by laboratory mice. This will help researchers and patients alike with future research.
The funds raised will support cancer research at the Herman B. Wells for Pediatric Research. Our goal is to assist the Daugherty family in reaching their research goal of $100,000.
