In July 2012 I was diagnosed with Ovarian 3c cancer. I was stunned but headed off for treatment in Texas. I live in NM so when I came home I was a long distance from my doctors. My husband started checking for support groups in my local area and found CAPPED. He was told I could get wigs, ionic foot baths, massages, and emotional support if I would just visit. During my first visit Tresa VanWinkle shared stories, helped me find two wigs, supplied me with hats, but mostly made me realize there was help and people who cared about my outcome. These caring people wanted to inform me of ways I could make life more comfortable and healthy. It has been at least a year since I first visited CAPPED. The people there are very caring and supportive and go out of their way to assist me. I am currently getting ionic foot baths at least once a week. My feet got so bad that I could hardly walk and the foot baths have made a huge difference. CAPPED offers as much or as little assistance as you need. Every service I have used there has been “no charge.” They are making a huge difference to cancer patients in Otero county. I would encourage anyone with cancer or other types of illness to go there and benefit from their many services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I cannot think of anything at this point.

My name is John Cuccia. I was looking for a form of moral support when I walked into the front door of the CAPPED Building. The people there were extremely kind and very supportive.
My wife, Betsy, passed away in the month of May 2013. Losing her devastated me. I had nowhere to turn. In my own opinion and belief, there should be more organizations like this throughout the country.
Everyone at some time in their life faces difficult times and situations. Losing my wide was a monumental heartbreak for me. CAPPED is allowing me to feel like I can put my two feet back on the ground. What more can I possibly say except I think they are wonderful!
