I express my gratitude for the gift of this grant from the United Breast Cancer Foundation.


When I learned about having late stage cancer I was deeply concerned about being here to help take care of our children. Life without Mom can be pretty grim. We have a large family with 10 children. I didn’t want “grim” to be the prospect for our children.


I have had donations helping me pay for my treatments. But it is true that the cost of care when someone is very sick can put additional stress upon an already difficult situation. It would seem that the medical and other costs are greater than the donations can afford.


This generous grant from UBCF has eased the burden during August as it pays some of our housing cost which allows me to get necessary medication for my healing. Thank you so much! Our family can breathe a bit easier knowing things are coming together.
