Knowing that I am now able to catch my breath and have one less worry this month has made a tremendous impact on me. To know there are people out there who selflessly help people in there time of need, individuals who are at their most vulnerable is heart warming especially during a time when everything is uncertain. I again, want to thank each and everyone of you for your kind generosity and for assisting me.

I'm Battling Cancer for the Second Time in a Year, & I Need Help Keeping my Home Please!

My Story:

I'm a single person, never married and I live on my own. I am thankful though because I do have family nearby to spend my free time with, and I really enjoy being around my nephews whenever I can. It's been difficult to find the time to do that though because in June of last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I immediately began chemotherapy treatments, and then I underwent two surgeries in February and March.

At that point, I thought that I had beaten the cancer, but even after the chemotherapy and surgery, I have been re-diagnosed as having TNBC, a more aggressive form of breast cancer. I've already undergone 30 days of daily radiation, and I'm now about to begin six more months of chemotherapy. Like anyone who struggles against cancer, my initial battle with it was difficult, but it was made even harder by the pandemic. It was almost impossible to be around my loved ones at the time. Now, the thought of facing another fight is daunting. I know that I have the support of my family, and I know that I can and will overcome this cancer, but right now, I'm also really having a difficult time financially. I haven't been able to work since being re-diagnosed with a more aggressive form of breast cancer I'm worried about being able to juggle all of my medical bills related to my cancer treatment alongside my essential monthly bills like my mortgage. That is why I'm seeking assistance with my mortgage payment for this month.

As long as I can keep a roof over my head by keeping my finances under control, I'll be able to focus all of my attention on recovering from cancer and getting back to work. With this assistance with my mortgage, I'll be able to cover my medical bills and prescription costs more comfortably, but most importantly, I'll be able to avoid having my house fall into forbearance and then foreclosure, at worst. That would be a huge blessing, but I would also feel very grateful just to know that there are people out there supporting me through my struggle against cancer, and I would like to thank everyone who lends me kindness and compassion during what has been one of the most trying times in my life.
