Linda C.

I am writing this note with tears in my eyes. I don’t know how to thank you for what you have done. 2020 has been the most difficult year in my life. Losing my beloved husband and then soon after being diagnosed with breast cancer and yet I truly feel so blessed. The blessings are that I had a wonderful husband who during his long illness I was able to provide him with the care he needed, I know we will be together again some day. Another blessing is that my cancer was caught early and after two surgeries and radiation treatments I’m well on my way to recovery. Another blessing are all the wonderful, kind and supportive doctors, nurses, social workers and aides that have helped me navigate through this difficult time, I was not alone. The Pink Fund has been another wonderful blessing. Thank you is not enough for the financial assistance that you have provided otherwise called hope. The sad thing about all this is that I really didn’t appreciate or realize how devastating this disease cancer is until I had it, I’m sorry for that. There are so many, many others that have been and are in worst situations then myself. My heart goes out to them all keeping them in my thoughts and prayers. I pray for a time where cancer will be a thing of the past and cancer will no longer leave it’s mark on our bodies, our minds, our hearts and our lives.

Thank you so much for your generous kindness.

With all of my heart,

Linda C.
