When thinking of how to relate my feelings for a testimonial I have honestly been hard pressed. It is really hard to articulate the actual safety, comfort and relief you have given me.
You have kept me safe.
And gave me some stress free time. Time to gather my resources, to save, to build and to plan…without
the “in my face” crunch of having to get immediate funds.
Your help is the help a parent or loving family would give…well meaning and still encouraging. You went beyond the immediate need in some cases and ensured I had some things paid for in the future to buy me time and catch my breath. Some breathing room. And from the very bottom of my heart I thank you.
I am a good citizen, an elementary reading and math tutor, a Certified Nurses Assistant, and a Pro organizer, a mother, a dog owner and I would like to think a good friend to many people.
But when I spent all my savings on health related issues, then my job ended, I was broke and found even my friends and family were unable to help out financially.
Then I found you and asked for help and you gave it….cheerfully and professionally and I am paying it forward too. I am on my own two feet now, thanks to you! And more able to take care of my health needs. Thank you for being a friend INDEED.
I am a 41 year old single parent with a 12 year old daughter I’m taking care of. I was told in June of this year that I have stage 4 breast cancer which means to them it’s incurable. Before chemo I use to work 2 jobs to provide for us, since starting chemo I had to let go of my second job from all the side effects from chemo. I have missed numerous days from my first job till the point I have no more paid sick days available. Without Women with Purpose helping me pay my bills my daughter and I would have been on the streets. I recently just had a mastectomy with lymph nodes removed and was out of work once again for a month and half. I talked to Jane and without hesitation she said of course we will help you. Cancer already has you emotionally, physically, mentally and financially drained and when you are fighting cancer worrying about if you are still going to be able to provide for you and your kids, it should be the last thing you are worried about. I appreciate everything this organization has done for me and my daughter. The values and compassion that has been shown by Women With Purpose is remarkable.
Women With Purpose are a Godsend
My name is Troy and I am a Stage 4 Cancer patient. This news and the complexity of the situation was a lot to take in and process in an instant. My quality of life and my health was declining daily and I was not able to work as much as I had been in the past. My insurance was also not very good as I am self-employed. My sister found out about this wonderful organization through a friend, so we wrote to Jane about my situation. Jane assisted us through the paperwork process. Women With Purpose went to work and alleviated some tremendous stress for me by paying my mortgage for several months until my brother could get moved in August 2017. This allowed me to focus on matters attuned to my care and getting affairs in order.
Thank you to Jane and her staff for being there to provide such a great service for those in need. My family and I will never forget them.
With heartfelt thanks,
