“No one is ever prepared for a cancer diagnosis, but as a 32 year old single mother it was not something I could even fathom. When I got the call regarding my breast cancer diagnosis from my surgeon, I was in complete shock. Once my treatment started the concerns for my health began to be over shadowed by the fear of going into debt.
Help from BCAG could not have come at a more important time. Not only were they able to provide financial assistance, the BCAG volunteer I spoke with was a compassionate listener who never failed to call when she said she would. BCAG cares deeply about the people they help. I wasn’t just a list of questions and data; I was a unique person undergoing treatment for breast cancer. As someone who has never been in this situation (and never expected to at my age) I was in absolute awe of their compassion, kindness and support. I am forever grateful to this organization."
