I wanted to thank you for the grant. It was a great way to celebrate my anniversary. I'm doing good, just a few bumps in the road but nothing that I can't handle! I'm so happy because this year I'm two years cancer free!! Thank you for always keeping me in your thoughts. I'm really blessed to have people like you in my life.
You are an inspiration and I'm sure Genevieve is extremely proud of you too.Thanks for helping women like me.
As my life has now returned to "somewhat"normal, I wanted to thank you for everything! Truly this is the hardest thank you to write as I know this foundation has been created out of such loss in Genevieve. I pray that knowing her legacy lives on in helping young moms like me provides at least some comfort.
Genevieve's Helping Hands was the first site I came to when searching for young+breast cancer+ mom - and I assure you it has been the best resource to me and my family during this journey.
Everything with the grant worked out perfectly and was a huge blessing. Thank you Anne especially for all your calls and personal attention, it made me not feel so alone.
Thank you SO much for the grant! The application process was very quick and easy, which is SO important being in my shoes! We are honored and humbled to be the first recipient! We knew God was leading us to The Block Center and also knew that meant more expenses out of our pocket, as we are from MN. It seems many financial assistance programs are distributed through local hospitals, which disqualifies us. When we heard about the Genevieve grant from The Block Center, our eyes filled with tears! It was such a blessing to be able to stay in a nice hotel across the street and have the gift card to use for food while we were having treatments. Thank you again!

I'm still healing, but am feeling well enough to reach out to you and the board with gratitude. The hotel stay was just what I needed following surgery; especially, given that I had drainage tubes, which were really quite painful. It was great to have the peace and quiet as well as the extra bed. My husband played nursing assistant and was able to sleep nearby without bumping me.
The hotel staff were very courteous and friendly and we enjoyed our stay (at least as much as we were able, given the circumstances). Thank you all so much for the good work that you do. I'm hopeful that other young women will learn of your program and be able to benefit from it as we did.

Thank you Genevieve’s Helping Hands for making me feel so welcomed from the first time I made that phone call when I was newly diagnosed. Anne took care of me from the very beginning making every transition smoother. Thanks for the grant, for the time, for the flowers, for the emails, for the phone calls, for the referrals and THANK YOU for the love.
May the Lord bless you and bless your organization to be able to help more young mothers to thrive through metastatic breast cancer. Much love to you, your family and everyone in
Genevieve’s Helping Hands.
Thank you Genevieve for continuing blessing us from
heaven. From the bottom of our hearts my family and I would like to thank you!!
Thank you for your generosity, love, and care. Our family was better able to face a very difficult period because of you.
We really appreciate you and are so grateful your organization exists.

Thank you so much for the love and support. You've helped me find hope in a dark hour. My surgery has been set for Thursday August 6th at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital, Boston.
Please give my regards to the Board of Directors and the Grant Committee as well.
Thank You so much to Genevieve's Helping Hands. My husband and I are having a fabulous time in Asheville! We have not been this relaxed in a long time. We’ll send an update later but I wanted you to know how much we appreciate this grant during such a stressful time in our lives.
