I found out I was diagnosed with my 3rd but of breast cancer on September 4,2015. I am also a victim of Dr. Fata and was mistreated by him for 5 years. When I was diagnosed for the 3rd time with an agressive form of breast cancer called Triple Negative I was in shock and scared. Cancer not only affects your health,it affects your finaces. When I was diagnosed the first 2 times me and my husband didn't have help with our bills because we couldn't find help and he had to work 2 and 3 jobs to take care of me and our 4 kids. I am a state licensed daycare owner and I had to close my doors so I could begin treatment. My cancer support group leader referred me to The New Day Foundation and my life changed. Instead of being terrified of not being able to pay our bills I could concentrate on getting better. Gina the founder came out to my house personally, talked with me and was so kind and understanding. It was like talking to a friend. She offered to pay our house payments for 3 months and gave us 3 months of grocery gift cards. The foundation also included us in their Christmas Giving Program and our 2 younger kids got wonderful gifts from their sponsors. Me and my family have been through such a horrible ordeal these past 8 years with my 3 diagnosis of breast cancer and also being a victim of Dr
.Fata who went to prison for harming his patients. New Day Foundation made our life easier and made me have peace of mind that my kids wouldn't go without and we wouldn't lose our home. I recommend them to all my Pink Breast Cancer Sisters and I am thankful every day that they helped us.

The new day foundation had a huge effect on me and my family. When I had to be off medical leave due to breast cancer with no pay. They stepped in and helped. The stress of the bills was off my shoulders and I could focus on me and getting through treatments. They were truly a blessing and a huge comfort in such a hard time in my life. Gods Blessings to this organization. I will never forget the great help you gave me and my family!

Many Thanks!

New Day Foundation has assisted many families faced with Cancer. They have provided emotional and financial support for the families as they face their new journey. This is a compassionate foundation who knows first hand what it is like to work through all of the financial and emotional trauma associated with Cancer.

I don't even know where to start. What New Day Foundation has done for our family could never be fully explained. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer our heads were spinning! We were so overwhelmed with the diagnosis itself, but also the stress of "every day life" was overwhelming. New Day swooped down like angels from the sky and wrapped their wings around our family. There are just no words to describe the help that they gave our family. They took such burden off of our shoulders by paying our house payment for several months along with several other bills and also sent gift cards to help with groceries and to help buy school clothes for my daughter.

Thank you New Day!

New day is an amazing foundation that helped myself and my daughter greatly during my battle with lymphoma. I was overwhelmed and a mother of a one year old wondering how I would make it through. New day was not only there with financial support but amazing people to listen, which is hard to find when you are going through such a difficult battle

While so many worthwhile cancer support organizations exist, few have the face-to-face presence of New Day. Meeting with the patient and their families, providing support, counseling and short term financial assistance is truly meeting hurting families "where they're at."

I am so proud to be affiliated with this organization and the good work it does.

This wonderful organization is helping the Regan family as Kathy, the mom of five school age children, struggles with double rare appendix cancer. The dad lost his job mid year 2015. Without New Day's help, it's likely that all seven of them would be homeless. Mom faces another major surgery later this year due to her cancer's recurrence. I am so grateful there are groups like this one to help families focus on the war against cancer and not worry about a roof over their heads and empty stomachs. God bless New Day and its donors for shouldering some of the burdens. Hope is such a powerful force at times like this.
