Having a disease can interrupt your life and everything you have going on in it. You can sympathize with others but you never know what it’s like u ntil it happens to you. You can plan for things that may happen in the future but it always seems like it never goes as planed. Finances are one of the biggest burdens after a diagnosis and acceptance of breast cancer and it is nothing but a blessing that there are organizations such as the United Breast Cancer Foundation that relieves some of these burdens.
After a bi-lateral mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation I was not able to work and my financial situation was very hard. The United Breast Cancer Foundation had lifted my burdens a lot with helping with assistance to pay my rent. You may never know how much this helps!!! This too will continue to put a smile on my face.
