Dear Anne and Board of Directors,

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 live on in helping young moms like me provide 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.

Fondly,

Kate


Hi Anne,
Thank you SO much for the grant!  The application process was very quick and easy, which is SO important being in my shoes!
Thank you so much for the Genevieve Helping Hands grant! 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! Erik, Angie, Coby, Cooper and Conner Kuch
Please let me know if there is anything I can help with.
Thanks!
Angie



Hi Anne,
Apologies this has taken a little while to get to you. 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 quite 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.
Warm regards,
Leah

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.

Dear Anne,

Apologies for the tardiness of this note.

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.

Warm Regards,

Anne,

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.

With Love,

Julia
