Today’s inspiration arrived by mail, as it so often does. To all supporters of Angel Foundation, please read this letter, which shines a bright light on why your help and support are needed and how they are valued, and why we are passionate about the work we do each day. Thank you for all you do.

Angel Foundation,

I don’t know how to thank you for the assistance of $700. This helped me get through another month. It has been a roller coaster ride, financially, physically and emotionally.

When I was 28 I had cervical and uterine cancer. I did chemo but that didn’t work. I was too far along, so they performed a hysterectomy. At 45 I was diagnosed with MS. We finally got that under control last fall and then I was diagnosed with Stage 111C breast cancer. I had both breasts removed and since the cancer had metastacized, they also removed lymph nodes. I have four months of chemo left, and then I will receive hormone therapy for five years.

I know I am not fighting alone and that folks like you, family, friends and God are right here with me. Thank you so much for your support. God bless to donors, your staff and all those who oversee your program. You have no idea what this has meant to me. What you do overwhelms me.

Considering the financial times we are in, I have few people I can go to for assistance, and being unable to work has really put me in a pickle. The money you gave me came in just at the right time, and it was used wisely.

Thank you all. May God bless you and keep you. Please keep up your good works.
