I’ve known the founder, Anisa Palmer, for about 8 years and I couldn’t think of another more fitting person to represent, I Will Survive Inc. Anisa is a strong leader, with a powerful spirit of determination, passion, and compassion to help anyone and everyone she can, who is either battling with breast cancer, have battled with the deadly disease, and/or all of the people affected by such diagnosis, directly or indirectly. As we all know, breast cancer not only affects the survivor diagnosed, but it also affects their families, loved ones, and livelihood. Anisa has stood in the gap for many survivors who needed someone to go to surgery with them, for women who needed to get their mammograms, from survivors who have lost their jobs and were at risk of eviction, she is there. From acts of kindness such personally assisting with cleaning a survivors home to taking out another’s trash. There aren’t enough character spaces permitted to define or even begin to describe the impact that I Will Survive Inc. has had in our communities, with the strong leadership and passion of Anisa. I can attest to Anisa’s unparalleled dedication, unrelenting, and selfless love for others, which are solely a minuscule number of the admirable qualities she possesses.

I am a local business owner of a breast surgery recovery boutique in Atlanta. I have personally assisted women that were referred to me by I Will Survive Inc. and the stories I hear from patients about how they have made it through some very difficult times and they could not have done it with this organization.

My first encounter with I will Survive Inc was when I was diagnosed with Stage IIIA Breast Cancer, had lost both jobs, exausted all my personal income and was being Evicted from the Rental place. I was very weak from the Chemotherapy, very near broken emotionally, physically, psychologically, I was holding it together for my four children who were very traumatize by the diagnosis and seeing me sick for the first time in their teenage years. Ms. Anisa was very caring and stayed true to her word that she and I will Survive Inc would be there with me through my challenges, and more came, I got worse physically and emotionally and my kids as well, however, I am most grateful for every little thing that they have done, I don't know where we would be without their support in every way. I appreciate the support.

Warm, friendly reception on phone and on-site. Patient and sympathetic. Excellent support for survivors of breast cancer. They listen to what you say and respond. They help you or provide really good links in the community depending on your need. They have great training and other events. On-site literature is helpful. B.S.

I recently relocated to Atlanta, and wanted to offer volunteer services, while seeking a new full time position. Having a background in healthcare, it was important to me to volunteer for an organization that is truly dedicated to being compassionate, supportive, and healing. I came across 'I Will Survive, Inc' during my search and immediately resonated with the healing endeavors and message of 'I Will Survive'. In my own way, I was on a personal path of renewal and healing. When you walk into the space of I Will Survive, Inc, you immediately can feel the warm, healing energy, you know that you are welcomed in a true safe haven of compassion. Such a wonderful place with wonderful caring people. Miss Anisa Palmer, the Founder of I Will Survive, Inc. is a true beacon of compassion, strength, wisdom, warmth, and guidance. All of the staff of volunteers were also wonderfully warm and compassionate, each bringing a special sense of care and giving. I was inspired in meeting each Survivor, witnessing their vulnerability and beautiful strength. I have had wonderful, endearing moments sharing with them warm words and hugs, soft laughter, and bright smiles of compassion.

Although I have been blessed to not need the services of I Will Survive Inc., I have also been blessed to know the founder and to consider her a dear friend. Having served in a variety of roles within the Atlanta community and abroad, it is clear when leaders have a personal passion regarding their role. Anisa has this passion and has executed her plan, pivoting when necessary, to help others.
The world needs more leaders like Anisa and those served by I Will Survie Inc., are fortunate.
Sincerely,

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2014 and unaware of the actual medical cost. When I received all my bills I was overwhelmed. I am a Social Worker and find resources for people. I went on the search for my own resources and I Will Survive Inc. contacted me and stated they were paying money towards one of my bills. I was overjoyed!!!! Recently, I modeled in a fashion show sponsored by I Will Survive Inc. and met many Breast Cancer Survivors. Made a new friend. It was an awesome event. Thank you I Will Survive Inc. You blessed my life.

I will Survive has helped me on several occasions with support through providing access to counseling, emotional support and also basic food supplies once or twice. I love especially how IWS focuses on providing health and nutrition information which is an essential to any recovery as well as for the upkeep of a positive mental and emotional well being. Helping me over the bumps in the road of life, IWS has a crew of volunteers that are always smiling and always willing to assist in whatever needs to be accomplished.
