To Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc. for their support. The grant I received was truly a blessing. When approved I was excited. A heavy weight on my shoulders had been lightened. This breast cancer journey came at an unexpected time. I lost my job in March of 2017 and months later was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, unprepared for either. Why me? Why me? I asked myself over and over. Depression soon had no trouble filtering into my life as well. I looked to the Lord for my strength and guidance. My faith grows stronger with each passing day. I was given direction. I reached out to many organizations for help and many of them told me of the past due deadlines. A friend directed me to For 3 Sisters and I began my communication with Shannon Moneymaker who has been a God send. On my behalf she contacted Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc., I am so grateful that the Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc. stepped in to assist by paying my rent. I have no income and to this date I still do not know where my next dollar will come from. The money received from Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc. was well appreciated. In the beginning I thought I was going through this cancer journey alone. My spirit reminds me that God is a higher power and He will direct my path. I’ve shard with my family and friends the support I received from Hopkins Brest Caner Inc. Each one of them would like to give their heartfelt thanks too. I am looking forward to saying I am a 2,3,4 year cancer survivor.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and started to have surgery, after surgery followed by chemotherapy and then Radiation I couldn’t work full time hours and started to have financial problems. I went online and found those amazing people at Hopkins Breast Cancer Inc. I ask for help and before I know it they pay my rent and help me with the car payment.

I was pleasantly surprised how they got back from them so fast. They practically saved my life because I was in the verge of losing my car and I was in such tremendous stress. They are so professional and ready to help when you need it the most. When I thank them…they simply replied, ” We are happy to help “…Such a great organization, I can’t thank them enough for the enormous help, when I need it the most.

The biggest gift ever…much appreciated!

Thank you, Hopkins Breast Cancer from the bottom of my heart!!!
