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!

Although not a direct recipient of the New Day Foundation For Families Charity, I can attest to the value & incredible impact that this foundation has on the people it serves. The love & support that is offered to families battling the disease of cancer as well as the ramifications that manifest as a result, is beyond reproach. The insight & sensitivity with regard to the needs of these families is based on the empathic connection to their feelings & struggles which was the impetus of this remarkable charity taking root. The New Day Foundation For Families goes beyond the immediate medical care of the cancer patient & focuses more on the everyday needs & emotional support of the patient & family. By providing assistance in paying bills, providing transportation when needed & offering relief from the stress & anxiety of mounting debt due to job loss, etc., the patient & their loved ones are better able to focus on treatment, recovery & maintaining, as close as possible, a normal lifestyle. I have personally witnessed the incredible difference that his type of support has made on these families & the impact that it has on overall recovery for the patient & family. I have listened to many family recipients who reflect on the meaningfulness of this foundation's involvement. Their words & feelings express all that The New Day Foundation For Families represents & strives for. There is no better testament to value & significance than that.

I have not only had the honor of volunteering at many events throughout the year, but witnessing first hand what my mother, Gina, who is the founder of New Day, does for each family. 365 days out of the year she works until each and every family has whatever they need to rest easy about bills, transportation to treatment, even gifts for the children on Christmas.

I've been fortunate to be a part of several events sponsored by The New Day Foundation For Families, and am always amazed by the foundations commitment to helping others. Cancer can rob you of hope and strain you mentally and financially. This nonprofit has the expertise to help you make good decisions and can help alleviate the burdens that come with cancer. One of Gina, and the foundations, greatest strengths is providing hope, through assistance and faith.

I have known Gina for 10 years. She and her Team at New Day are 100% dedicated to helping those in need effected by the toxicity of cancer. The Team at New Day goes to incredible lengths to relieve not only the suffering of the cancer patient but the entire family. Gina is an angel here on earth.

Great foundation. My father was diagnosed with cancer when I was 7 years old. I was the oldest of 3 siblings, with my younger brother being only 2 at the time. (Many years ago..) This foundation would have been a great resource at that time. They do wonderful work. I am so glad they exist! SPREAD THE GOOD WORD!

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.

love

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
