Dear SFAC Grant Review Board:
Receiving the call that I was selected for a HeartStrings Grant was so unexpected and beyond meaningful at this point in my survivorship. I had recently completed my year of treatment and made the difficult decision to leave my job. I was not in a position to leave my job while in treatment and now know that it is essential to my healthy recovery. The breast cancer battle does not end with being cancer free or even treatment free.
I continue to be impacted physically, emotionally and financially because I had breast cancer. The blessing of receiving this call for a HeartStrings Grant allowed me to be at ease with leaving my job and focus on my healing and recovery. The grant is not just a gift of financial assistance, it is the gift of more time with my family and more energy for healing and recovery.
Forever Grateful ♥
Christi, Matt, Addie & Jaxson
