- Marjorie

“Thank you for all the help you provided me during my cancer treatments. I cannot put into words the appreciation I feel toward your organization. I live out in the country and for more than a year there were countless trips to the doctors and hospitals for tests and treatments. Not to mention the prescription drugs and miscellaneous items that I needed to help me through this ordeal.”
- Martha

“I wish to …express my “Gratitude” for your cheque to cover my transportation costs … Women lose so much in wages, their CPP contributions are lost, and so many out of the pocket expenses…but thanks to your organization I can pay this most important bill.”
- Bonnie

“This has truly been a gift from Heaven that I will treasure forever. You truly do understand how difficult life can get when a person gets sick.”
- Myla

“I remember sitting in the doctor’s office … I would have to go to radiation … and I sat there stunned and told him outright that I couldn’t go every day, you see there is no way that I could even afford the gas, let alone the parking … I was feeling defeated … if it hadn’t been for you and all you do, then I wouldn’t have gone to my treatments and who knows where I would be today.”
- Julie

“I was diagnosed with locally advanced, triple negative, inflammatory breast cancer … I then moved continents with my children while in treatment. I was exhausted, physically and emotionally … Helping Hands financial help freed me to focus on getting through my treatment, supporting my family … and beginning to set up a new life. It has been invaluable, and I can’t thank them enough.”
