    I’m a two-time cancer survivor who is looking to “just take a break”. I’m not sure if there’s any programs out, which I’ve searched, for older women who have survived cancer and would like to take a short/inexpensive vacation, just to breathe.

    All the programs I’ve noticed are for sick children with cancer and that’s totally understandable; but even as an adult who have had their lives turn upside down for over x8 years, can barely pay their bills, while driving a x20-25 yr old vehicle, because she can’t afford to make payments on a newer one, would love to take a break/vacation, if not only, to not think about her situation, but can’t afford it. If anyone know of such a thing/company, that may grant or help with vacations for an older individual, please forward info to me.

    Thank You,

    Hello all.

    Just had surgery #4 after 3 prior and radiation. Have neuropathy and lymphedema as a result of treatments and this is just for stage 1. I am looking to go to school and take a certification course and if anyone knows of any scholarship assistance for a 42 year old that would be helpful. All the assistance programs are for stage 3 & 4 or high school kids looking for scholarships. Thanks.

    Hello my name is Dena Byrd and I am 44 years old, this is my second time with colorectal cancer and the cancer hospital is 3 hours away in Houston, Texas. The financial aspect of this disease is horrible as well as the physical. Each time we go to Houston, the trip is no less than $900, I get a monthly disability check of $1500, which includes monthly bills, meds and being a single parent. My family has helped financially as much as they could, they also have bills of their own and no one in my family nor extended family is “rich” by far… I’m begging for help, I know this hospital can get me where I need to be health wise, they are one of the best in the country and I need to stay with them, matter of fact, the charity hospital is further and more expensive for lodging and such and I almost died there 6 years ago…. please help me in the best ability of your charity, thanks and God Bless

    Hello. I am currently in treatment for Stage 2B breast cancer. Have undergone a double Mastectomy, Radiation and continued Chemo therapy. I will be completing treatment in next 6 months. I am in need of a home. I live with my sister right now but do not have room for my college age child to have his own bed. I’m hoping to eventually purchase a home but may need to rent in order to save up for it. More than anything I would greatly appreciate any referrals or assistance with finding a home for me any my son. Thank you!

    Hello my name is Melissa 2 weeks ago I found out that mother has small cell lung cancer that has spread to liver already.. We are still awaiting the results of her pet scan and brain ct to see if it has spread to any other organs … She has started her chemo and will be having a lot of other scans and test. We travel to Lafayette for some of these treatments. My mother is on a fixed income and I am currently waiting on disability. The vehicle that my mother has is very old and falling apart. I am very afraid it won’t last much longer. I am asking for any assistant that can be given to my mother in getting a car . Thank you for your time and God Bless
