I want to thank you for this.
I am a breast cancer survivor.
My daughter’s father is currently battling Stage IV colon cancer.
My daughter is 7.
I have been to the end of the Internet looking for support for her.
In all that time,
I had never heard of Camp Kesem
until I opened your email a couple of weeks ago.
She is now enrolled to go to sleep-away camp for a week
and make friends with kids who are in the shoes.
I am so grateful to have found your website.
I am an oncology patient navigator and a registered nurse.
I help patients diagnosed with breast cancer.
The financial assistance information you provide is incredible.
In all my years in NYC caring for breast cancer patients,
I have never seen such a list.
This is going to be a game-changer for some of our patients.
What an inspiration you are to me.
I recently lost my 60-year-old husband to cardiogenic shock
on Valentine’s Day 2018.
I went for my annual and found out that I have stage 4 uterine cancer!!!
I lost all hope in the universe and the divine powers.
I need to learn from you how to stay strong.
I am immensely grateful
for the Nancy’s List community
of the many who are living with cancer
and the extraordinary healers who care for them.
This has always been my hope…
to create a community ‘call-to-action’
to cope with the epidemic of cancer.
We have realized together that we could not depend
on the overworked medical professionals
to deal with the emotional crises that come with a cancer diagnosis.
But we can rely on our humanity…
to come together,
share the passion and the mission to care for our neighbors …
holding their hands and their hearts
as they move through the cancer journey.
I wanted to create a community who shared those values
… and we did … and it is magnificent.
To you, the healing practitioners who are part of our community …
I am joyful about your generosity.
I muse about the ‘angels in our midst’
and I thank you for your dedication to the healing process.
I want to continue to grow
and support more patients and their loved ones.
I need your financial help to continue my work.
Nancy’s List has been a one-woman-show for nearly 14 years
and now, thankfully, it is bigger than I am.
With your financial contribution,
I can get the support I need
so that I may reach out to more sisters and brothers
who need our generosity and loving kindness.
