When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was 38 weeks pregnant with our second child and my husband and I had just purchased our first family home. We had worked so hard to pay off debt and build a strong financial foundation for our family. Not being able to work and support our family creates stress and fear that compounds the weight of a breast cancer diagnosis.
My family and I will benefit from this grant because I am able to breathe easier and focus on caring for myself and our family. Grants like this one help to give renewed strength and help to uplift us to continue the fight.
