It’s never convenient to receive a cancer diagnosis, but the timing could not have been worse for Vicky. In the middle of a long contentious divorce, minimal health insurance, forced to move to a cheaper home, trying to stay strong for her two daughters – and she learns she has breast cancer.
At Cancer CAREpoint she found support services at a price tag that fit her budget – free! She is a regular at weekly nutrition and movement classes and has used counseling and the collage workshop to help reduce her stress.
“When I was diagnosed my reaction was that I could not afford to have cancer. It was such a relief to walk into Cancer CAREpoint and be presented a menu of services at no cost. I know that whatever I need I can get it here or the Cancer CAREpoint team will help me find it.”
