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.
In May of 2016 I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. My treatments were 2 lumpectomys and radiation.
Our blue cross deductible is crazy high. 6000.00 and then we pay a percent up until we hit 10,000.
For several months I was so tired and in the healing process I had to limit my work as a manicurist.
Between Angels of Hope and New Day Foundation... we have been able to pay our medical bills.
I will never be able to express our love and gratitude for the help we have received. With out it I don't know how we ever would have been able to make ends meet.
At such a difficult time ( and I am tearing up as I write this)... it was amazing to have complete strangers reach out to help my family. It gave me the option to take a breath and concentrate on healing.
I am so thankful to say... my treatment was amazing and I am now cancer free.
From the bottom of my heart please know what your help has ment to my family.
I have personally witnessed on several occassions the impact that New Day Foundation makes to families. Their Christmas program is absolutely amazing! They truly care about the families they are helping and it shows with all the events that they do. I am proud to help out when I am able to.
I have had the honor to volunteer for the New Day Foundation, and I cannot express the joy it brings to me and my family to be able to help those whose lives have been impacted by cancer. I know that working with New Day, we are totally focused on helping others. Gina is an amazing inspiration to everyone she works with, and it is so rewarding to be able to contribute my time, money, and other resources to this outstanding organization. Martha
The inspiration and dedication of this incredible nonprofit makes me proud to know and understand the heroic nature of their care and compassion.
This foundation is led by professional, dedicated, friendly, enthusiastic and caring people who hear and see people's stories and truly help. I was welcomed with open arms when I asked to volunteer in their 5K run and fundraising auction/dinner downtown Detroit. It was a very fun experience. People were upbeat and worked together.
My mom died of islet cell cancer when I was a senior in high school. I wish an organization like this existed for our family then. I love the mission of New Day and love seeing them meet needs of the entire family affected by cancer in all areas of life.
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!
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!
