Who we are,

Each Moment We're Alive Cancer Support Network is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization supporting individuals and families affected by cancer through emotional, educational, and navigation assistance. They create a community offering comfort, resources, and hope during and after treatments with support groups, employer assistance programs, workshops and outreach programs. The network empowers cancer patients and survivors with compassion, aiming to make a positive impact in their lives.

How it started,

Each Moment We're Alive originated in 2012 as a musical and photographic story Inspired by Cancer Survivors. The lyrics and text were written by Debra Lynn Alt. The photographs by Monica Baer. Together they collaborated combining Monica’s Photography and the lyrics Debra wrote that serve as a proud legacy and life-affirming contribution to cancer research and support.


Debra described Monica as a remarkable presence at the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life, and other survivor events. In memory of Monica Baer and others who have battled cancer, Each Moment We're Alive will empower women cancer survivors through workshops & programs that incorporate music, books, beauty, and actions plans to move beyond cancer with a loving community

Advisory Committee

The advisory council for EMWA is a crucial component of the organization's efforts to support women affected by cancer. Their participation in L.A.N.D.'s  (Living A New Day) pilot program has allowed them to connect with other women who share their same experiences, fears and desire to move forward.


Their ongoing involvement in the survivorship program has been invaluable since its inception. Their dedication and compassion have helped to create a community of support and empowerment, and their contributions have made a meaningful difference in the lives of many.
