“Hi, I’m 39 years old, a single mother of three and was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m calling to see if there is any way I can get low-cost treatment? I don’t have insurance and have very low income. Can you help me?”
These types of calls are very common to our office and it because of YOU we are able to say, “absolutely, we can help you.” It is the sigh of relief you hear on the other end of the line that makes our day. These individuals not only have to hear the devastating words “you have breast cancer”, but then hit several roadblocks along the way due to their financial situation and lack of insurance which only adds more frustration, stress and a sense of helplessness.
You should feel very proud of yourselves, Komen supporters. Thanks to you we help thousands of men and women with similar stories in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties, 365 days a year.
2012 was a wonderful year for Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale : we had a very successful Race for the Cure®, hundreds of new volunteers and recruited new corporate sponsors. We expect 2013 to be an even better year for us with supporters like you by our side.
We are humbled by your loyalty, dedication and passion and have nothing left to say except THANK YOU!
Happy Holidays and a Happy & Healthy New Year from the Board of Directors and Staff at the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure!
