Paula’s Story

Paula's Story

Recently the foundation met with a local family where a mother of four had invasive breast cancer. She recently had surgery and was recovering before starting chemotherapy treatments. Paula had been gainfully employed as a Behavioral Therapist prior to her cancer diagnosis and her husband worked a full-time job and two part-time jobs to help make ends meet. It was hard work but they were making it and things were good. Due to her cancer treatments, Paula was unable to work for several months and her husband also missed work while accompanying her to her appointments and treatments. This reduced their income significantly.

With your previous support we were able to provide Paula and her family assistance with their mortgage for two months. This assistance allowed them to get ahead and get through the majority of her treatments. It also allowed her husband to return to his regular jobs and resume providing for the family. This is a perfect example of how your donations help us bridge the gap for families in need.

Thank you for making a real difference in the lives of Kansas City families!

Audlyn's Story

In late June, the Foundation met with a local elementary school teacher, Audalyn, who is a single mom fighting breast cancer. Due to chemo treatments at the end of 2015 and early 2016, she was unable to work for several months. This reduced her income significantly. When we met with her in June, she had exhausted all resources, and the bills continue to roll in.

With your help, we were able to provide Audalyn and her son with enough money to pay all of their bills for the months of July and August. In addition, we assisted with some anticipated back to school expenses. Audalyn is 100% able to return to teaching at the end of August and is looking forward to putting this struggle behind her. This is a perfect example of how your donations help us “bridge the gap” for families in need.

Thank you for making a real difference in the lives of Kansas City families!
