Review for Here to Serve Inc., Monrovia, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In April of 2013, my daughter Hazel was diagnosed with Stage 3 Neuroblastoma, with a very bleak prognosis. Hazel, at the time was one of four children, one of which was 5 months old (now we have 5!), so we knew that this journey was going to be very tough on our very young and growing family. Here to Serve, and especially Katie Quintas came along side our family in it's darkest times and helped us keep our heads above water. This organization became so invaluable to us by coordinating all the support we needed throughout our daughter's treatment, being a sounding board for any and all concerns we had and even for emotional support. Katie, who has seen two family members through cancer treatment, could relate to what we were going through on a level that very few could. And on top of helping provide for our families' basic needs such as laundry, meals and even scooping dog poop(!), Here To Serve went above and beyond to take care of us in ways we never expected (i.e. Katie organized a group of people to decorate our home for Christmas). Needless to say, we could not have navigated our journey as smoothly as we did without the help of Here to Serve and hope that we can give back to them any way we can!
