"I want to thank you will all my heart for your help! I've been battling breast cancer since the end of March (2015). My chemo treatment started April 4 and I have nine treatments left before surgery and radiation. Your contribution will assist with my monthly living expenses (gas, electric, phone and food)! To me, your $300 is like a million dollars! Not only will it help me with my financial obligations, but more, it helps relieve the worry that has consumed me for weeks. This immediately took away the worry. That worry was causing sleepless nights, loss of appetite and headaches. Thank you again for the relief! It not only helped financially, but, maybe even more important, it helped me mentally, emotionally and spiritually! Today, because of you, was a really good day. Thank you!"
