Join Family Practice Specialists in Supporting Single Parents Battling Cancer



FPS has chosen to participate in the Bare Necessities donation program for Singleton Moms.  We would like to ask our community to help us in this cause.


Singleton Moms is a small, Arizona-based non-profit organization. They are dedicated to nurturing single parents battling cancer and their minor children. They do this by meeting the practical day-to-day needs of the entire family, while providing hope for tomorrow. Their resources are based solely upon community support. Donor support allows them to reach more parents. The single most impactful way you can make a difference in the lives of these families is by making a contribution. This enables them, through their essential programs to reach more single Arizona parents struggling to simply make it through the day-to-day challenges while battling cancer.


To donate online, please visit: Donations will also be collected at the front desk in our office thru the month of February. 


Who do Singleton Moms serve?

  • In 2009, 17,000 single parents were living with a cancer diagnosis in Arizona
  • Singleton Families have an average of 2.7 children living in the home
  • 70% of the parents they serve have been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer
  • The average age of the parent they support is 36 years old
  • The annual cost to support a family of four is $10,200
  • In 2013, Singleton Moms provided over 2,160 meals or 8,640 portions to Singleton Families


This means that on any day of the year at least 23 people are enjoying a nutritious family meal provided by Singleton Moms.


We all know how quickly the expense of household necessities such as laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. can add up. The Bare Necessities program provides families with a supply of most-needed household items that are used in the home daily.  This keeps the home running smoothly and helps to reduce the financial burden that is associated with restocking practical household items. The Bare Necessities items are provided through community drives held in partnership with many companies, churches, schools, clubs and organizations.


FPS has decided to give back to the community by asking for donations to give for their Bare Necessities program. Singleton Moms programs focus on the practical day-to-day needs of the entire family while they are struggling through the single parent’s cancer crisis.
