After an initial diagnosis of stage IV breast cancer, I learned that some tumors had returned. I reduced my work time and immersed myself in the care necessary for healing, care that wasn’t covered by insurance.
My personal funds were soon depleted and I explored other options. I searched the Internet, seeking emergency funding for artists and craftspeople. I was relieved to learn there was such an organization.
I spoke with a staff member immediately, then a few more times while filling out my application. Staff at CERF+ was always kind, patient, and present, which I greatly appreciated as I was feeling rather anxious.
Within about two weeks of my application being received, a check was mailed to me. What a blessing that CERF+ exists and is there for those of us in need.
Thank you, CERF+!!!
