When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2018, my husband and I had recently purchased our first family home together and we were preparing for the birth of our son Jaxon, with a toddler (Addie) at home. During the past 8 months of treatment, breast cancer has taken away my ability to care and provide for my family countless times. Receiving the Living Expense Grant allowed me to focus on prioritizing my self-care and to breathe a little easier. I was required to return to work in July and because of this grant had the option to return at part-time hours this month. Grants like the Stringsforacure Living Expense Grant have given me that extra boost and the feeling that I still have some way to provide for my family.
